    Palm Pre is in the running for most anticipate gadget award, as is Windows 7, which if you ask me is not a gadget, but I digress...

    Vote for the 2008 Engadget Awards!

    I voted for the Pre, of course.

    The gadget, Palm Pre, is now in second place to Windows 7, an OS. 3rd? Snow Leopard. I lose respect for Engadget readers more and more.

    That's actually Windows 7. And I think Windows 7 might actually win this one... although I did vote for the Pre.

    And did u guys notice that every category with an Apple product is lead by that product? Apple fanboys... tsk tsk.

    If i didn't know about the Pre, I would have voted for Windows 7 because I'm a Beta tester and I have to say it's amazing. But still, I voted for the Pre

    Indeed W7 is awesome. I've been using it exclusively for a while now. No need to go back to XP (well besides to Hotsync!!)
    Treo 650p --> Treo 755p --> Pre

    So sad to see the Apple dominance on Engadget. Snow Leopard barely has enough features to bump the version up to 10.6. They might as well make it 10.5.7.

    Sorry Timmy, SERO does not work with the Pre.

    Windows 7 will blow SL out the water...

    Built a home media center around win 7, 64 bit.. works like charm with everything... pulling all movies/music off the windows home server in the computer room.

    But win 7 loads all drivers and works like a charm... best beta OS I've ever seen... outside of Ubuntu 7 (fawn, I think).

    Even then I'd call them a tie.. although, U 7 pushed the os into a new category... IMO.

    800w the worst... BB is worse, it seems. Having had a BB on my belt for 2 months, I'd have to agree. I love keeping my WM device in my pocket and loving it.... lol

    This is disgusting, calling Pre fans "fanboys" or "fanbois" or whatever. I always thought that that filthy and derogatory term is reserved for Apple-liking people.

    Wow, Pre has no chance! As of now:

    35.1% Windows 7
    24.1% Snow Leopard
    17.4% Pre

    I guess I have to read to see what Snow Leopard is going to offer. One would think something significant, but I bet it's just the usual. Anything is everything!

    PS. I don't care for the fanboy term either and agree with GreenHex's association. For the record, I have a macbook and my kids have Touch's.

    Anything with apple in it over there was getting voted on. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Not any more.

    And it used to describe Palm OS fanbois a few years ago when Treos were relevant, but those days are long past.

    They were included by "popular demand" - i.e. mob mentality.

    Having tested Vista and Win 7 from day 1 (MSDN tester not beta) I am very happy to see how great Vista turned out and how 7 is turning out thus far. I have Vista on my computers and they work 100% perfectly, no BSOD's, no crashes. I love the animated boot screen in 7

    Still, would you call Win7 a gadget?
