    TeckieGirl and the Pre

    While I was doing my daily browsing on the net I noticed all the new reviews of the Pre. Wow! Maybe I should try my hand at getting an interview and a look at the Pre. It is clearly the most sought after device since the eh-phone that launched a few days ago.

    So here goes. I made my appointment around 2 after eating my delicious lunch of pepperoni pizza after my chores. ( I was cleaning after 2 dogs, 2 cats and a full grown man.)

    I don't think I've ever gotten dressed that fast since the day I got married! I wanted to be on time and fresh for my appointment. I got the appoinment under the condition I would not take any pictures. I took a cab into one of the sprint stores near me. I wore my hair down and my tightest t- shirt I could find.

    And as I entered the door, all I saw was Pre...and it was everywhere! It was on the large TV screens, on posters... There were two exact mock versions in a locked case.

    Then I saw it!! I actually touched the Pre!! Got one flick in and.... He immediately snatched it from me then it got locked out of site. The pre advocate said, "There you saw it." My mouth hung opened. I guess the t-shirt didn't work.

    "I am sorry... I wasn't supposed to let even you do that. But I would be happy to give you a review." So I listened to what he had to say. At least I did get to see it. I should be happy; but I want it even more. Well... this is what he said about the Pre and 4G coming out.

    "First of all the Pre is does not have plastic feel. It’s very light and delicate." The minute I held it, it felt no different than my blackberry, but it was very light.
    The advocate also said the screen was a knockout and was very responsive to touch. The size of the pre actually fills up my whole hand, while guys it will sit and literally be in the “palm” of yours

    I asked about the app store: “ It will be running on launch”. There are a few apps on it now; the same ones you have seen on the site; and more are coming during the launch. Everything will be downloading all at once.

    The infamous touchstone dock it was in the store! OOOOH! But he refused to take it out of the box. But he said he has tried it and it does a great job charging up. Speaking of charging up, I asked about battery life. With careful use it is comparable to a blackberry. And he has tried the sync with iTunes and it works.

    I can I tell you about the screen? The screen is AWESOME!!! And the flicking up the apps was very cool…during the millisecond I had it. And when I mean snatched it...he snatched girl. One flick was all I got.

    4G will start with air cards first late this summer; and 4G will be launched throughout the system the in the named cities on the list this fall.
    Well that was my Palm Pre adventure today. No salespeople were hurt during the interviewing of the Pre. But boy did I want to snatch back.
    This is my souvenir of my trip; they gave me a store display of the pre…Good luck on Saturday.

    Still don't understand why Sprint and Palm are being so secretive. Why don't they try and build more excitement, try and lock in launch day sales?

    Haha.. Great story and mini review. Should have got a little mock-up out of paper and cardboard and placed it where that pre was, and grabbed the real one and took off into a corner to play.

    So, this phone is delivering up to the hype, correct? I mean, as far as you're concerned?

    I have to wonder about this, given the 4G has already launched in a couple of markets, what else in this "review" is inaccurate?

    Inaccurate? Um, how about it wasn't.. She or he never said it wasn't out. It's been "tested" in a few markets, and will roll out more this year. Was that so hard for you to comprehend?

    Yes, it is BEYOND wonderful. I was really upset I could not buy one right then and there. They tried to comfort me with the paper store model. You will not be disappointed. If you are you need to get your head examined. I have a blackberry, and thats all I have used. I love items that are different, unlike the iphone. This is brilliant!!!

    Perhaps a tight low-cut V-Neck T would have been in order?!

    I think you're using the word "review" a bit too liberally.

    These folks are giving better review than all the "Apple" sites out there.
