    yea, I really hope they at least put 16GB if not microSD by the time it comes out. 8GB is so cheap now, I just don't get it!

    I believe they'll get there... this is the first device... there will be a 16gb and then perhaps a 32gb... ala (will remain untyped)...

    My fear is then no microSD will be considered so we're are 'forced' to upgrade for more memory... many of us on the boards can FILL UP easily 16gb (my bro was able to fill up his 160gb Ipod... and still had to choose what CDs to rip... we are NOT the NORM!

    (I may tell one of my bro' to wait on his upgrade... not the other, he's younger and has the time to swap mp3 files & videos)
    Now it's the WAITING GAME: a GSM Palm Pre
    T680 (COPPER) + Cingular = FUN!!
    My T650 & 6230b and NX70 are retired... =(

    While we were told at a meeting with the company that the Pre would sport a microSD slot, apparently someone got their wires seriously crossed. The device won't have expandable storage -- which is kind of a disappointment.
    Was I the only person to parse "the company" as referring to Palm? Clearly I'm totally off-base, judging from the other posts.

    The "it will have it one day" excuse won't fly probably with consumers. Especially since it will most likely be going up head to head with a 32gb iPhone by the time the pre gets released.

    I can't believe this... Why scrimp on such a small matter? This shows you how wily these people are (Apple included). And here I am getting all excited, seeing as I'm still using my 650. C'mon Palm, go all the way, we've stayed with you all these years, shouldn't you give back some love???

    This is probably a dumb question, but I've never shied away from them before, so here goes...

    Wouldn't the magnets in the wireless charging system make a microSD slot problematic? Would additional shielding be necessary?

    microSD, being flash memory, is unaffected by magnetic fields.

    Apparently you've never been to my high school classroom. I can clearly show you several students who ask dumb questions on a regular basis.

    Those are the same ones that will be making more than you working part-time during the summer. No wonder your posts are so odd at times... I get it now. lol

    Yeah, good burn. You really got me on that one...

    It's also funny that most people think teachers don't make good money. We just complain a lot about it because people are too dumb to realize we are getting away with murder.
