    Mine is what I call the "copy & paste sham."

    They hyped up the copy & paste feature that the iPhone lacks/lacked - but it turns out you can only copy and paste editable text - which for me usually means I can only copy and paste stuff I myself am typing.

    I don't know about anyone else, but the majority of the copy and paste I was doing on my PPC 6700 and Centro prior to the Pre, was copying txt from web pages and from received text messages.

    Case in point, my wife just txt me the address of where she is at. I cannot copy it and paste into Google Maps and Sprint Navigation.

    That's a real pain, and since I've had the Pre I've had several experiences where I needed to remember the info from a web page or txt so that I can re-type it elsewhere.

    The fact that Palm didn't include vibrate *sic* in the phone....

    Lack of a notification light....that also doubles as a charging status light...and an option to configure the Pre to just show the charging status light when it is on the TS...so I don't need to have the screen on at night while it sits on my nightstand...thereby bugging me with light pollution, using more energy than it needs to, and shortening the overall life of the screen and backlighting.



    Followed by better options for timing email polling and reminders. e.g.,

    - I would like to define time windows for email polling...and have it disabled at night.

    - I would like the option of having a calendar reminder 0 minutes in front of an event...and would also like to be able to select a default value for when a reminder should show up for an all day event. Personally, I'd like a reminder for an all day event to pop up at 8am on the day of the event for many of my events. Not the day before and not at 12:01 am on the day of event...which just would wake me up.




    Yes, I like to sleep ...and no, leaving my phone in vibrate mode isn't a good option to address some of these items since I need to actually wake up if the phone rings at 3:00 am.


    Frankly, the combination of the old PalmOS and Butler knocked most of this stuff out of the park on my 700p.

    cheers,
    Steve

    Media Player sucks. (No scrubber, no bookmarking makes audiobooks and podcasts difficult to listen to)

    Yes, it really needs a slide bar for the content. FF and REW are not cutting it for podcasts and other longer content.

    My single biggest gripe about the Palm Pre is I DON'T HAVE ONE YET. Hope to have one soon.

    Google Maps 2007 Extremely Limited Edition.

    No transit, no walking, no bookmarks, etc. Aside from texting, the most oft-used program on my E71.

    Lack of a spell checker, perhaps?

    (No, despite being officially old I'm not at all "muture")

    Why would anyone who is obviously so offended by anyone stating anything other than that the creation of the Pre ranks right up there with the discovery of fire waste their own time and that of others by responding to a thread that they consider futile and pointless?

    There's a lot of things left out and aren't quite "there yet" about version 1.0. I just wanted to guage what are others' primary concerns.

    For the record, I love my Pre. I loved my Centro, but love my Pre more - but my love for my new phone hasn't blinded me to its imperfections - unlike some, perhaps.

    Right here.

    8 Gig is a good amount for a phone, but with what the pre will be able to do we will need more space than this.
