Even moving from Treo 600 to Treo 650 I had to upgrade some software. How many times we have heard people's program crashed on a new version of PalmOS or new phone. Sure some of the vendors provides free fix. But typically by the time you get a new phone, there is are major new releases and it would make you want to upgrade software anyway.

Anyway, I am an optimist, so I believe the 3rd part apps issue will be solved if Palm can bundle enough good programs for typical users to start with. I think the following are must have:
* PIM (done)
* Music player (done)
* Phone viewer (done)
* Movie player (done)
* Map (done)
* Web (done)
* Phone, messaging, contact, etc. (done)
* Flash (no YouTube yet)
* Doc reader (no?? PDF, Word, Excel, etc.)
I think Pre is pretty close. Let's just hope the final apps runs as flawless as the demo.
