    Over at Endgadet, they are showing 14 new phones that are being released on AT&T's network.......they must be nervous and are hoping by "leaking" this information it will help them retain some customers. Well sorry AT&T, its not keeping me - im still jumping ship for the Pre on the 6th

    Engadget - The first story starts on May 24, 2009, at 10:24 P.M., and is covered in the following seven subsequent stories..

    According to one of the blogs (Engadget or BGR), AT&T is getting the Eos in the second half of 2009. WebOS is going GSM!

    But it's no Pre. Smaller screen. Not enough to keep me.

    Let's see,
    first half of 2009 ended up being June 6.
    That means second half 09 = Nov 6

    Att does have some nice phones coming out. That's what kept me with them for so long, but who knows when they'll actually be released. That does suck. When a company says something like, 1st half of the year and I think sweet it'll be out in January or February and it come out a lot later. I just never learn.

    Think your math may be wrong. 1st half=1st 6 months. June is the 6th month. By that logic, 6 more months = 12, which would place it somewhere around December 6.

    AT&T nervous- not a chance.
    1. Pre- Can't go on Internet and call at the same time. Same for email. Really bad. Deal killer for me.
    2. Pre- Only 8 gig memory- new iPhone rumored to have 32. Just my music takes up 5 gigs.
    3. Pre- No visual voicemail.
    4. Pre- a 1.0 device that is totally unproven as of yet.
    5. Palm can't hardly afford to advertise, nor can Sprint.
    6. Pre- A CDMA device- can't use in most countries overseas.
    7. Pre- smaller screen.
    8. Pre- no itunes direct syncing.
    9. Pre- Limited Mac compatibility. Will have to buy Mark Space.
    10. Pre- stuck with Sprint, a struggling co. losing lots of money.
    11. Pre- no ability to touch screen type when one does not want to use the hard keyboard.

    I could go on and on. The only advantage I see with the Pre is multi-tasking. While nice, that's not a deal killer for me. I know others will say the Sprint 3G network is superior. I haven't found AT&T to be lacking at all, and Gizmodo found, at least here in North Carolina, that AT&T's 3G was far faster than Sprint. Plus, AT&T is rapidly investing right now in additional capacity for the new iPhone. Sprint can't even hardly afford to expand given their losses and poor financial condition. Wimax is where all their money is going now and the Pre it not WIMAX capable.

    I have spent the last week trying diligently to figure out if I wanted a Pre and looked at every angle I could, but have become convinced to keep my iPhone 3G. I think the new iPhone will have features that further distance the iPhone from the Pre. Sorry, but I think the main purchasers of the Pre will be Palm owners already on Sprint.

    The Pre will be good for Sprint in that it keeps the current Sprint customers on the Palm from leaving, but don't look for it to cause Sprint to resume growth.

    1. So, basically, the Sprint Pre never stood a chance with you no matter how good the device was. Kind of renders your other critiques moot.
    2. Tired argument in the extreme, but this is hardly a universal negative. Also, the 32GB iPod will cost at least $100 more and several hundred more in service costs each year. Over the span of your two year contract, you could have purchased a 32GB (soon to be 64?) iPod Touch, a Wii, and a PS3 along with accessories for what you will pay extra for the 32GB iPhone versus the Pre. But at least you can listen to some more albums at any given time, right? Win!!!
    3. This will be added by Sprint or a third party VERY soon after launch.
    4. Wack arguing point that somehow gives an advantage to iPhone due to...metaphysics? PalmOS is an even steadier, app-laden platform than iPhone/OSX. So what?
    5. Last time I checked, Sprint commercials are all over the place, so they most certainly CAN afford to advertise, but are declining to for now due to the limited inventory. I still don't understand how a company's advertising budget helps my phone or PDA work better...
    6. Would be a big negative...if it wasn't launching on a domestic carrier. Again, has nothing to do with the Sprint Pre specifically.
    7. Yup. Smaller device. Which I like actually. The iPhone is kinda big for my pockets. I have an iPod Touch 16GB. I always hand carry it if I bring it anywhere. Good device...wish it fit in the hand better.
    8. Don't care about this at all. You might as well ding iTunes for not direct syncing with another media program. I'm tired of Apple trying to sneak their programs on my machine because I simply use iTunes anyway.
    9. Actually, it's meant to be limited toward ANY desktop. That's the point of the whole cloud thingy, y'know?
    10. LOL. Rather be stuck with them than AT&T, a financially successful company with a 3G network that fails during most stress tests (e.g. Coachella, Lollapalooza) and drops calls left and right in my major metropolitan city. Again, how does a company's balance sheet get me clearer calls or faster data?
    11. And the iPhone has no ability to give me a dedicated keyboard when I don't want to cut screen real estate down to a third using the onscreen keyboard. The vast majority of keyboard uses on a smartphone will benefit from a keyboard that doesn't use screen real estate. Another loss for iPhone.

    I could go on and on.
    I kinda wish you would. Very funny stuff.

    The only advantage I see with the Pre is multi-tasking. While nice, that's not a deal killer for me. I know others will say the Sprint 3G network is superior. I haven't found AT&T to be lacking at all, and Gizmodo found, at least here in North Carolina, that AT&T's 3G was far faster than Sprint. Plus, AT&T is rapidly investing right now in additional capacity for the new iPhone. Sprint can't even hardly afford to expand given their losses and poor financial condition. Wimax is where all their money is going now and the Pre it not WIMAX capable.
    Buddy, Sprint doesn't need expansion. It NEEDS contraction because they allowed themselves to get too big and unprofitable with the Nextel acquisition. AT&T needs expansion simply to reliably meet claims of having a nationwide 3G network. If you want to pay extra for that, great. Again, you criticize Sprint, CDMA, and almost everything else under the sun BUT the phone. It's very telling.

    I have spent the last week trying diligently to figure out if I wanted a Pre and looked at every angle I could, but have become convinced to keep my iPhone 3G. I think the new iPhone will have features that further distance the iPhone from the Pre. Sorry, but I think the main purchasers of the Pre will be Palm owners already on Sprint.
    Well, I don't measure how good a device is by market share or how cool it comes off to my friends or how many people switched to get it. None of those things help deliver clearer calls, faster data, or a better user experience.

    You should continue to enjoy your iPhone 3G. It's a nice device and OS (just not for me), and it's produced some great changes in this industry. But please end the fiction that you seriously considered a new Sprint Palm phone for more than a few seconds. That's not possible given your assertions here.

    I love my iPhone as much as the next person, but your reason number 1 doesn't make that much sense. How often do you make a call and surf at the same time?
