    Not sure if this was posted or not but i noticed from my box and others via unboxing videos, that there are two boxes for the pre..Mine has black on the sides and the screen of the pre has a flower on it. The other version is yellow on the sides and has a sunset on the water image. Is there a reason for this?

    Is there a reason for this? Anything special about either box?

    I got a black box and it required an update. The wife got yellow and it had 1.02 already. Coincidence?

    Mine also had the yellow box and 1.02 was installed on it out of the box.

    I posted a pic of my three Pre boxes on launch day...which is here:

    I have two of the lids swapped, but you should be able to see what is what there.

    BTW, the odd box out needed the 1.02 update and the other two shipped with it.

    I had the black sides and my Pre needed to be updated.

    I guess we can come to a conclusion?

    Hmmm...something weird is up with that link...so here's the pic:





    BTW, in the last two days I have gotten two more Touchstones and a pile of USB cables and chargers...and the family is very happy.
    IIIx -> Tungsten T -> Treo 650 -> Treo 700p -> Launch day Pre

    Is there any correlation to the box/os that it came with and all the problems being reported (i.e.- The ones that shipped with 1.02 dont have the cracks, slider problem, reception issues, etc)? If it came pre loaded with 1.02, it is obviously a later run on the product.

    Possibly, my came pre loaded with 1.02 and I don't seem to have any of those reported issues.

    lol...I noticed the different boxes as well. My original Pre needed updated to 1.0.2 but still worked GREAT except about 8 hours after I bought it, the camera quit working for no reason. Luckily, one of my local sprint stores held a few back for exchanges to I was able to get it replaced on Monday. My new phone was in the yellow sided box with 1.0.2 while my original phone was the darker sided box that needed updated.

    My first one was black sides, dldn't have the update, and needed to be returned due to random power cycles. Replacement was yellow sides, didn't need to be updated and has had no problems other then the battery when I still had my Live email coming to the phone

    the boxes with yellow sides are the newest pres with the new update. they are the ones that are getting shipped out now. i just had to get a new pre because of a stuck pixel and found this out (the sprint rep told me).

    so yes, the yellow sides means it is the new pre with the updates already installed and everything

    darn, now I know mine is an older revision.

    BTW, ALL radio shack thus far in so cal only has black firmware 1.01 (just like mine)

    Needs to be manually updated
