    It just makes no sense to me. It's obvious that the guy is a professional at whatever the heck he does. He must have known that if he blabbed his mouth enough that the whole situation would blow up and be all over the place. I just did a Google search for Palm Pre and the first 2 pages were filled with his Twitter postings. IF he does have a Pre and did happen to sign an NDA, then he is in store for a lot of monkey poo being thrown at him from a very distant height.

    For me the release date is well, whenever it gets released. I'm just happy to have another name to associate with the Pre.

    I have a sony ericsson dumbphone, it lasts 4 days if left idle, 3 days with mixed use. So it's not a smartphone, it doesn't have 3g, but I can do anything I want on it except it doesn't have the nice large touchscreen.

    So if 8 hours of medium use is all you can get out of this, and if other smartphones are even worse, then I'll just buy a new dumbphone.

    8 hours just doesn't get me excited, that's all I'm saying.

    very true. ofcourse palm is denying this rumor, no matter if it's true or not. they want to announce the release date themselves.

    8 hours of medium use i'm ok with. But i've been using smartphones for years now. Chargers at work, car, home. Just part of the routine that i just plug it in when possible.

    I don't have the luxury to plug in the phone everywhere. I'm a student, so I don't have a car and no workspace of my own at school, so from 6:30 in the morning to 20:00 in the evening I'd like the battery to work. I could ofcourse plug it into my laptop with the usb cable, but that just seems desperate to me.

    you guys think about 15 hours of medium use is too much to expect?

    It should be able to get 15 hours of medium use. That's pretty much a day's charge.

    Then again, i don't consider this twitter guy worth anything. Palm just needs to open up the preview soon to launch. I think the window is short enough now to keep the buzz up.

    15 hours? It really depends on what is medium use to you. My centro or iphone wouldn't get that. With either, its hurting for a charge late afternoon. If i was a student like yourself, that replaceable battery starts looking good.

    Dmefoc scared the guy off and called him a troll. I think are chances of seeing some pics are slim to none.

    The chances of seeing pics is none. This guy is pretty much lying.

    If I double posted, sorry. I searched before I posted, and didn't see anything pertaining to this rumor.

    I guess if you use PHONE ONLY ( no browsing , no GPS , no TV, no EMAIL ,turn the activesync off and set the location to 911 only) you might be able to get that much.
