    My current phone (HTC TyTN) has 128 MB of flash ROM storage. The difference between that and 8 GB is 64-fold. Let me repeat: 64-fold.

    HTC TyTN also has microSD slot. The MAXIMUM size card it can take is 4 GB.

    The difference between 8 GB and 16 GB is only twofold. There is a very small number of people who really are in a situation where 8 GB is not enough, but 16 GB would be enough.

    Most people are not complaining about the Onboard storage for media files as much as they are for backup purposes (which might be a moot point if WebOS is slamming, however, with both POS and WM, I've had to do hard resets and full restores on the road several times). Not having network service would negate any argument of online backup as a replacement.

    Man! We need some hard facts from Palm on a release date and complete specs and features! The tension is spilling over. Let me ask this: Once the 8 gig Pre is fully ready for release and sale, how much if any additional development work is needed for Palm to add additional higher capacity devices? Is there any major retooling or OS work to do for a 16 or 32 gig Pre?

    LOL. the OP mention the iphone.
    At the Palm presentation the head of Palm made a swipe at iphone about the battery.

    Almost all the articles mention iphone. Your refrain that this won't be compared to iphone (like the aborted Instinct iphone killer launch) is too funny. Of course it will be. Look at the posts here by hundreds of treo central members that do!

    Of the over 200 Sprint phone rollouts , no rollout has ever been more similar than the Instinct, the last sprint iphone killer, and the Pre;
    both announced at a major industry event
    Both announced at joint event with head of maker and head of sprint
    both publicly announced 4 months or so before sales
    both announced with Hess saying ARPU as his first comments
    both announced with Hess saying "everything plans" as his second comment
    both spun as iphone killers or iphone response
    both won their rollout event's "best in show product"
    both tied to iphone by tech blogs and press

    2GB RAM would have even been better ... I'm just sayin'

    Of course more is (almost) always better. And more expensive.

    Aero, before you go repeating points I've already debunked, take care of this piece of unfinished business.

    I think 8GB will be just fine IF Kinoma comes out with a player like WM where you can stream all your music via Orb. I love the Kinoma player for that reason alone. It will free up a lot more space on the Pre's if the do. That will turn any Pre into a 16GB, 32GB and beyond.

    I know a lot of people are complaining about the lack of a storage slot, I only want it for backup purposes. I'm wondering if Palm might re-launch MyPalm. In the demos you see MyPalm under the calendar list, and we know Palm discontinued MyPalm. Palm also had that Palm backup beta that backed up your Contacts, Calendar, Memos, Tasks, Bookmarks, Speed dials, and Call log to their server allowing you to restore your "important" stuff while on the go. If Palm, or even a 3rd party developer came up with this kind of solution I think people would feel a little better. I guarantee we'll see a developer come up with something along these lines, backups are very important to us Palm OS users.

    It seems like these forums don't have any rules.
    I see a constant thread hijacking going on & duplicate threads being made.

    Anyway, I wasn't able to find the video on the Spanish site. I can read Spanish, but I'm too lazy to search for the link. Can anyone provide a direct one?

    They do - There is a sticky w/ all of the rules. The moderators are also pretty good (in my opinion). There has just been ALOT of posts since the Pre was annouced.

    No argument from me on that one.

    Itis pretty simple. The OP made a direct comparison of iPhone and iphone only in a discussion about memory.

    Several people mentioned the fact that more people will be looking at on board storage when memory is mentioned. One person attacked this very valid point.
    They attacked comparison to iphone -- when the OP brought up the iphone.

    The Palm rep mentions the 256MB RAM immediately after the little musical introduction is over when he talks about the hardware.

    This thread's subject mentioned NOTHING about the 8GB of storage. Yet there's always someone to bring up that "needs more than 8GB" argument. There are already a TON of threads and articles why it was designed that way - both arguments for and against it. Does it really need to be brought up here? This is about the RAM. Let's talk about that specifically. Thanks to those who stayed on topic
