What exactly does that imply? Does that mean that every app is basically a website like for example Weather Watcher? If that's the case, I don't have a great deal of hope for cool apps that I am currently using on my WinMo 6.1 phone (Sprint Touch). Will they be able to program things like YouTube apps, SlingPlayer, or a Shoutcast player? I know that we're not going to see any fancy games like what's available for the iPhone, but how about the basics, stuff like Vexed, Solitaire, Asteroids, Tetris.... games like that?
Also....what is known about the browser that comes with it. In the video I have watched, the thing seems to be about as fast as Opera Mini and Skyfire, both of which are server based. Does that mean that there really won't be much in the way of security, some of which Opera Mobile 9.5 offers?
I am very excited about the Pre based on the video coverage I have seen, but there are a lot of things that I can do on my Sprint Touch right now that I want to be able to do on the Pre if I get it.
Based on Palms philosophy for the Pre where you should be able to keep working and therefore all notifications should show up in the bottom line, I am guessing a full screen caller ID is out of the question? I wonder if the Pre will have a Lock Screen or something like that to prevent accidental calls to people.
I am also unclear on whether we get Sprint Tv and Sprint Radio, as well as Sprint Navigation out of the box with the Pre, and I hope that they will be as good if not better than they are on the Sprint Touch (minus Sprint Radio, they never made that for the Touch)
Sorry about all the questions, but to me, the CES event raised more questions than anything, simply because I want this phone to do everything that the Touch can do, but just be faster and more stable.
