    Interesting that possibly a Centro-sized pre may be coming sans keyboard. Guess will see an on-screen keyboard. Wonder if it'll work in landscape mode?

    Great find Marky. Two noticeable items in the q & a. 1st, looks like it will pretty much be the Simply Everything plan (see question 2), and 2nd, it most likely won't be out until after March (last question)
    Kyocera 6035 > Kyocera 7135 > Treo 600 > Treo 650. All Verizon. Sprint Treo 755p, HTC Mogul & Centro

    Though, that could be just for new users.

    Well, according to some, why should Palm care about anyone but new users, particularly the consumer types.

    It seems to me Palm (or Samsung or Nokia...) only make money when they sell a phone. Or do they get part of my monthly payment to Sprint?

    I know Palm sells accessories and software, but their main revenue has to from the sale of handsets, right? If that's the case, then that has to be their focus-sell a phone. I'd like them to be more warm and fuzzy, but they need to sell product.

    Apple actually got part of the monthly payments for the original iPhone, but not the 3G. Other than that, its practically unheard of.

    Well, indirectly, they all get it.

    Something tells me Sanyo isn't giving Katanas to Sprint for free, Sprint's buying them, and then using the service plan to pay for them.

    Yes, but with the iPhone, Apple directly got a share of every iPhone user's monthly payments. That doesn't happen for anyone else.

    I find it interesting that they arent going to give Dev's access to the Linux kernel.
    ONE can be spelled as NEO.
    There is no spoon.

    Does this "approve all apps" thing mean that I wouldn't be able to write an app for personal use and drop it on my phone without submitting it to Palm? Does it mean that there won't be any apps at treocentral for me to download and install?

    Oops, didn't mean to steal your thunder. All of this Pre traffic is getting difficult to keep track of.
