    I believe the gesture area is a HUGE selling point and WOW factor as do we all but are we limited to what it can do out of the box or are the possibilities endless as far as what developers and updates develop for it. Can you guys think of some slick ways to utilize this further?

    A slick way to copy/cut/paste using the gesture area is to put one finger anywhere on the gesture area and press C, X, or V to copy, cut, or paste.

    I always thought it might be useful for gaming...sort of like a joystick

    Previous/Next for the Music App. If it's not in there at launch, I'd be surprised

    There is already an advanced feature that allows you to switch cards by using a "long" gesture going from extreme right to extreme left of the gesture area or vice-versa.

    if there is a software keyboard, then a two-finger swipe up from the gesture area to bring up the keyboard

    I want a menu access gesture, such as diagonal from bottom left to top right. You know, like the good old days before keyboards.

    I want fast shortcuts directly to my most used apps, from any other app. I want to touch and hold the gesture area and push a key to directly access the browser, dial a contact, or launch another app. I've heard palm say that they aren't taking any steps backward in terms of usability in the name of the new features. I hope that means the Pre has the same quick access to my programs that I am used to.

    Do you mean like the quick wave launcher?

    Not anywhere on the gesture area but on the button, and the corresponding letters to the the cut, copy, and paste.

    I was thinking maybe a double tap in the gesture area to bring up the keyboard

    One thing that is wild to me, how does the Pre's gesture area know when you want the quick launcher or when you want the launcher? Both are swipe from the gesture area up.

    Anyway, I would like a way to use the gesture area to open a favorite app, like a diagonal swipe or double tap.

    It guesses your intent by how long and far you swipe.

    I'd be surprised if it is in there. a short swipe to the left always means back. a long swipe to the left means change card. what would you have left to go to the previous track?
    It would be too complex if they make different gestures for every app.

    Actually, what i said is true, you can put one finger ANYWHERE on the gesture area.
