    I feel you. I had my zune 30, my PSP, and my ex-girlfriends 1st Gen Iphone (that I paid for) ALL stolen on the same day from my back pack in the employee break room at my old Best Buy store. I was PISSED!!! Pissed more because it was my back pack in the EMPLOYEEE break room and EVERYONE knew that was MY bag. I felt so disrespected i spazzed out in fron of alot of people (including my GM at the time). I threw off my best buy shirt and stormed out of the door, i was 100% sure that that was gonna be my last day as an employee for best buy.

    Luckily for me, I came to my senses and apologized to the gm(whon was very understanding and felt my pain) and HR hooked me up and let me get everyhting I'd got stolen (minus the iphone) for half of the original price...

    I don't have a zune or an ipod, nor do I buy music, but 15 dollars for 10 songs is 50% more then itunes and amazon.

    Right. It pays for access to unlimited songs but you also get 10 DRM-free ones to keep every month. IMO a better deal than paying for sat radio because you get unlimited music and you keep a few each month if you find something you like. Just a different business model.

    bingo....if you essentially pay $1 per song you're essentially paying $5 to have open access to the entire zune store every month.

    Yeah, it's good for people who want access to all kinds of music but less good for people who like building large music collections. I used the 2 week trial back when I bought my Zune but I didn't keep it because I usually just listen to Pandora or Shoutcast or I buy CDs when I go to see bands play. I don't typically buy lots of mp3s but I tend to use Amazon when I do.

    NO WAY There will be a Micro SD, maybe a 16 g pre but my hopes are not up! A lot more work to put in the Micro SD than a larger drive. If you hit it on the monies I will buy your "touch stone" charger for you!

    For long trips I'll have my 16GB Touch but for everyday use 1000 songs (about 4GB at 128kbps) on my Palm Pre would be just fine. 3GB left for apps, PIM, some pics, etc. is good enough for me. Of course, if a surprise 16GB Pre was to be release I would definitely choose that.

    i need at least 10 teraflops for any phone i purchase min, then it needs to be expandable at least 10 fold on that.

    and it needs a built in swiss army knife.

    ya know, im glad i am one of them people who accepts things as they are and deal with it. this phone has more and better fetures then any phone on the market and everyone still wants to rip it apart.

    the knife is a good idea now that i think about it

    I am going to miss my pen stylus. I always need that pen with me. I wish the Pre has a slot for a styus or pen

    I reckon flash is already there, the leaks have made this semi-clear though Sling OOtB would br nice and a swift kick in AT&Ts pants I'm tipping it not packaged.

    Dreaming now: FM radio and FM transmitter.. That'd be sweet.

    My Centros 8GB micro is full, in that sense Pre is a step backward. Still dreaming for 16GB or microSD slot, they have denied it but they have also denied stuff that we've now seen is actually there... please Palm. please.

    If I had the time to buzz around the zune store and download constantly I'd probably buy in. You figure you get to keep 120 DRM free songs a year. It'd be interesting to see how many people download or buy more than 12 albums a year, and how much they spend doing it? Between Sirius and my current methods of getting music, it just doesn't make sense for me. Do like Amazon though. They have good deals on album downloads every so often. Tough to resist sub $5 album downloads. And I'm happy with 256kb. Not that CD quality wouldn't be nice, but the only time I'm sitting down listening to equipment that would really make a difference SQ wise is when I'm watching a movie.

    I did just pick up a zen 32gb player that's getting more use than my Zune though. The 80gb is more of a home player now. Granted I can stream through my TIVO, but I don't care for the music interface.

    With less than 8gb available for tunes (much less after work stuff), I see the Amazon music service as a waste. I'll continue to download from there on my computer and transfer what I want to the Pre. It probably wouldn't even help in a pinch because if you're maximizing the storage, you wouldn't have room for any spontaneous downloads. At least at 16gb it'd be a little easier to leave a gig open for that sort of thing.

    Pixi: Sold. Pre: Passed off to another rep. Touchpad: Just a toy until Cloud syncing arrives, and a better doc editor.

    No chance of that when the stylus needs to be the size of a felt-tipped pen.

    I'm a little suspicious about the no micro SD thing myself. While there might not be much room in the phone itself, I see the back cover as a very viable option. I believe the razrs have a really slim, drop in slot for the card. Really, you just need some wires to get from the contacts on the card into the processor, no need for an ejection mechanism. It may make the back cover slightly thicker, but it wouldn't have to change the phone as a whole. I believe the cover for the touchstone has contacts, I would imagine it's not difficult to engineer, but what do I know?

    Personally, I think that 8 Gb will be enough for me. I see the advantage of smart phones over dumb phones as a jack-of-all-trades that you carry with you at all times. Great when a computer/camera/mp3 player is not handy, but not as ideal. I'm at my computer at work or home with my full synced library for most of the day, and my xbox streams media to my entertainment center. My iPod with a busted screen serves as a jukebox in my car stereo. And Lord knows I don't move much between those places to exercise or anything, so I think I will be content. But to each it's own, huh? I'm curious to know how other people get access to their media throughout the day, and for those that depend on their phones for their sweet, sweet tunes, how does that work out for you?

    So, despite being a fan of Zunes, I've never owned one myself. Bought one for my girlfriend and she loves it. It was a great day right before New years eve when all the 30 Gb models froze. I caught wind of it early, and texted my g/f "Sorry about your Zune freezing up." A minute later I got a call that started with "How could you possibly know about that before I did?" Lol.

    Anybody else find this statement funny? Not to rat on this person, but obviously you're not into "pushing the limits"...

    I am starting to doubt that there will be any BIG secrets being held back. With all the printed material that have seen leaked now I really don't think Sprint/Palm would spend money on those documents and training and then have to issue a last minute change and reprint. Unveiling any additional feature in those documents would still not have given Apple time to respond (if that was their tactic to begin with). No, I think we've seen the hardware that we're going to get, but there are still a LOT of software questions to be answered.

    I'm leaning in that direction though I'm just hoping so I don't have to wait another 12 months to get a proper upgrade from my Centro.
