    Well, we've heard a lot about the new Palm Pre, yet there's a lot we still don't know. The most important question about Palm's new Pre Smartphone is not about a Garnet Emulator, Cloud vs. Palm Desktop Syncing, or if Sprint will require a Simply Everything plan. No, it isn't even if or when it will be coming to Verizon or when you'll see a GSM version.

    The most important question about the Palm Pre is...

    ... does it have the Taxi?

    This is the question that must be answered!

    Dieter? Bueller? Anybody?

    it's probably has a picture of the Obama or Bin Ladin, flashing across the screen or a bank with the door vaults open signaling the next Great Depression! Yes I enjoyed the Taxi

    Agreed.
    It might not be a Taxi, since several other wandering objects were used over the years by different manufacturers (sports car, inchworm, gondola, etc). Still, they really need to have some kind of random, unobtrusive, and optional easter-egg.
    I'd be surprised if they didn't.

    And, Palm -- if you DIDN'T, please go back and put it in. Shouldn't take much work, and you KNOW you want to!

    Ok, it's been a while. I've forgot how to get that sucker to go. What screen do I need to be on and what do I do?

    I miss the Taxi now that I am using Winmo after many years of the Palm OS. Is there no Winmo equivalent?

    i remember the taxi was a cute, cartoon drawing on my 650, but it's now a boring, realistic taxi on my 755p. if they put one in the pre, i hope it's more silly & fun than what it is now.

    if i remember correctly, go to preferences>power. at the bottom right of the screen, above the "tips" button, draw a tiny clockwise circle. it may take a few tries, but if you get it right, you'll see a little easter egg appear.

    the taxi appears randomly in any app. you may see it within minutes or maybe not until next month. always a fun surprise.

    Tks again GearGoddess,
    I must be the exception because I've never seen anything like that on any of my devices (palmPilot, Visor, Prism, Treo 300, Treo 600, Treo 700 and Centro.)

    First you have to make the Easter egg visible in the preference's screen. Then you will see the taxi's. Every single Palm (except the Window Mobile ones) and had this feature. Hopefully the Pre will too.

    Here are the instructions

    Cool, now it will come.

    It seems to like certain apps more than others. I think I have most often seen the Taxi in the Palm ROM apps. Memo pad is where I think I have seen it the most.

    Let us know when you see it.

    So far the Taxi has been MIA. I'll try to keep it on the memo screen and see what happens. I feel like Mr. Pitt from the Seinfeld episode where he's staring at a piece of art work.

    Will advise.

    Well 13 days later the Taxi finally showed up.

    It ran accross the screen while I was looking at tasks.

    It was larger than I expected.
