    I wonder if there is the potential for the keyboard scoop to collect dust since there are little edges around the keyboard. I know that when shoved in ones pocket it'll be closed, but I'm sure pocket lint will find it's way in there.

    I can't believe that's it's smaller then my Centro! I can't wait to get my hands on this baby.

    From what you've read and "seen' is it your impression that the screen is a little curved too?

    Yea, it looks that way.
    Just an ever so slight bulge.
    (would the word convex be correct?)

    It seems Convex is the correct usage or at least close. So that means I'll be able to spin it like a top like I do with my BB 8320 in it's acrylic case. I just hope it's a glass screen so it doesn't get scratched too easily.

    I would guess Dieter is still playing catch-up.
    I'm sure we won't have any trouble finding it.
    Either way, I will post a link to it here when he publishes it.

    I really hope dieter gets answers to a lot of these questions, but I have a bad feeling that palm will leave a lot to the imagination until release time gets closer. I feel hopeful for this device, but I really hope they release it in the next month or two and don't wait for another half year.

    Actually Sprint is #4 on the list while Palm is at #1, Gizmodo and Engadget fall between them. (TreoCentral is at #23. ) The link at the top of the page is a paid ad for Sprint - not a search result.

    The average user, doesn't know this and they look the same. Either way, it's a win win for Sprint & Palm.

    Unless I'm mistaken, the wave launch bar "buttons" are simply to replace the physical quick launch buttons that we've always had on Treos. I would imagine they can be customized, much like they can be on the Treos. I don't think that is what ksom was talking about though, they were talking about the shortcuts... Do they call them speed dial?... I don't have my Centro handy. I would be shocked (with all of the other user friendly features included) if they didn't retain the shortcut features, allowing you to assign any contact or app to each key on the qwerty keyboard. It would make absolutely no sense for them to eliminate that feature, since they do have the keyboard.

    Hopefully Rob or his team from HobbyistSoftware is already working on a solution. Hint, Hint, Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink.

    My title wasn't meant to compare the Pre with the Pro, from a hardware standpoint. I've seen people question the choice of Pre as the name of the new phone, and I think that question has been answered... How the phone seems to be ready for your next request before you even make it, due to it being so connected to the web. I compare it to the Sports Tap app on my iPhone. Sure, it will auto refresh game scores every 30 seconds, as long as I keep it open exclusively (not doing anything else on the phone). With the Pre (if I fully understand it), you would only need to go to a website that auto-refreshes the game scores, then just keep that page as a bookmark. Then the bookmarks are live cards, meaning they are always connected, so you would have the current scores in the moment that you open it again. No waiting. It was "Pre" loaded for you, hence the name.

    Sorry, I got wordier there than I intended. My original thought was that I understand the reason for the name.... and that... The only thing I found odd about it was that they have the Pro also, and that one might be confused about which one is which. Nobody on TC would, but I mean for the casual shopper. I'm sure when the advertising campaign starts for the Pre, those concerns will be alleviated.

    Maybe I was unclear about what I meant to say...

    I don't think there's any reason to assume that there is any problem that requires a solution. The wave thing is to give us the 4 main app shortcuts, and possibly their 4 secondary shortcuts (I didn't go back and count how many icons were in the wave).

    There is no reason to think that they didn't also include the speed dial shortcuts. They'd be crazy not to. And I don't see very much craziness in the design/features of the phone so far, one possible exception being the lack of a memory card slot.

    A lot of the "must-haves" on here seem to be based more on the short-coming of the aging Palm OS than anything to do with a modern mobile OS.
