    The name is fine. It's not that big of a deal. I think I'll just refer to multiple ones as Pre phones.
    Oooooh! Thanks for the link. I still don't like it. I'll live though.

    LOL! I knew it! Thanks for that!

    Looks like I was way off base criticizing Palm calling the Howard Stern show.

    Except, that's very close to the plural of a popular hybrid car: Toyota Prii!!

    No problem. Should really watch out about names. Just heard this one the other day: Natalie: Sounds like "you have a big breast".

    Your using genitive apostrophe and genitive s. Plural is "Pres" not "Pre's", "Treos" not "Treo's"...

    "You're", not "Your". But thanks for the info, I was wondering about that.

    I like the name "Pre", not only is it catchy, it has only one syllable rather that two like "Treo", "Centro", or even "iPhone". Not that a fraction of a millisecond matters but its nice to know that it is easier to say. Plus I think that to a normal person (someone who doesn't look at a forum all day waiting for a phone) will find it more appealing that something like those previously mentioned names which in turn makes it a very smart decision from Palm.

    Why is it those criticizing grammar -- always, always make a grammar mistake when doing so?

    Marianne: You are = you're, not "your"

    Your theory is proven wrong - I saw no errors in your grammar criticism.

    Damn aero, redundancy is a forum crime too. I got an email on my phone alerting me to your post. What, was I too nice about it? By the way, what kind of mistake?

    Hey Marianne, I had noticed you live in Stockholm. Many years ago, I visited Tranås, in Småland. The first day out on my own I walked to the train station, to buy tickets for my Swedish girlfriend and I to travel to Stockholm.

    There was a young guy behind the counter reading a book. Not knowing Swedish I spoke to him in English, enunciating each word slowly, "Do you speak English?"

    He looked up from his book and said, "Well I'll give it my best shot".

    You people are just too damn well educated over there. I was just playing about you or you're, the important grammatical point you made was a good one.

    Anyway, assuming you are Swedish, and English is your second or third language, forgive this typical monolingual American for opening a can of worms.

    The "more clever" () Americans spell it "ur" and relieve themselves of that amazingly complicated apostrophe usage.
