    The Palm Pre is a fantastic device...but they sure will have to work with their marketing to get the attention of the folks here down under (in Australia)

    When the iPhone was released there was hype for days...with news stories everywhere....forums going into overdrive...

    now with the launch of the Palm Pre....it takes some good googling...
    ...one of our local news sites (Channel 9 tech) hasn't even given it a mention in reference to CES...(that I can find)...instead preferring to talk about a rumour of an upcoming iPhone Nano!!

    Sure the geeks among us have taken notice....but the general population have their eyes glazed over with nothing but a world of iPhones!!

    But then I guess Apple were once also in that position back in the days before ipods and coloured Apple Macs!

    How about this phone?

    Would you say that phone has received more coverage?
    (very good price / specs IMO)

    But this may be due to it's avaiaiblity. With Sprint as the launch partner this is really a US launch. The Iphone really go hot gloablly when it was not just w/ ATT.

    Kogan has been getting a bit of press down here...but for all their products...the guy basically cuts out all the middle men...imports and creates the products at a much cheaper price...

    eg. They've got a full 1080p video camera at an amazing price.

    As to Android in general...there was a bit of hype about that...but really many down here have iPhone mania...

    If Apple would have released the Palm Pre and just called it the "iPhone Pre" or something....there would have been incredible hype!

    Apples marketing these days can just about hold a press conference and leave the rest to the news outlets and general media!

    That is cred and hype that Palm will need to build...but then maybe the Pre can be their "iMac"... their "iPod"... a product that does get the man/woman on the street buzzing
