    There have been a lot of Pre vs. Iphone threads and comments but I was thinking what if we could combine the two (w/ emphasis on the pre)

    We've seen the iphone grab some features from the Pre (kinda) so what would you like to see on the pre and why?

    I would take the background notification system from the Iphone. I think it’s a poor excuse for multi-tasking but it would be amazing on the Pre combined with its notification/ alert system….
    Imagine ESPN sport scores scrolling along the bottom of the screen

    I want iphone's app store for the pre. That's about it.

    Yeah... Not really much of what the iPhone has I can think I want on the Pre. The app store of course. Other than that... The Pre pretty much has it covered.

    This thread got me thinking about it... The iPhone almost seems useless next to the Pre. Of course, I may take some of that back once I actually play with a Pre myself.

    what's the difference between a "pre vs. iPhone thread" and this thread?

    I think the iPhone way of background notifying is a good way to save power. It would be nice to see a hybrid form on the pre.

    You may have a point becuase I can't think of anything else I would want.

    the difference is I'm not interesting in which is the better device.. I wanted to know if you integrated both which features would you take.

    Only feature of the iPhone I want the Pre to have besides the App Store and its apps would be the most obvious:

    Availability for purchase

    Form factor: slightly larger frontal area/screen size (like the iPhone), but medium thickness between the thinness (and possible frailty) of the iPhone and the chubbiness of the Pre.

    Look at the specs and the Pre is only slightly thicker than the iPhone. I believe .12 of an inch. to be a slider, thats barely even noticable for me. and for s much better device, i will take the concession.

    I concur, all I would really ask for is a comparable app store on the Pre. Possibly also an on screen keyboard instead, to reduce the unit's bulkyness. Otherwise, I think the Pre looks superior so take all the rest of the Pre's features.

    - the 8 gig of extra storage my iPhone has
    - the media player my iPhone has
    - iTunes sync
    - sync via USB with my laptop for calendar and contacts
    - 3rd party apps and developer support.

    You forgot to mention the Apple stickers.
