    I think your daughter didn't like it because she came from a Blackberry. Most people that I've met that have a Blackberry don't end up liking it.

    My 21-year-old daughter traded in her Touch Pro for a Pre. She says she loves the size and simplicity of the Pre. She likes that it takes fewer steps to accomplish each task with the Pre.

    It's probably because all of her friends have the real-time-ish blackberry messenger...

    My daughter is 1 and she drools every time she sees it. Well, she pretty much drools all the time anyway so she isn't allowed near my pre...

    My daughter is 2 and she can operate this thing. She always asks to look at pictures and spends a long time flipping from one picture to the next and rotating the phone to see landscape and portrait. She can zoom out but is having a harder time zooming in. The reverse pinch can be a little tricky.

    So she went back to her old BB.

    I thought she be thrilled to get this baby but she wasn't.
    So I took the pre back. Is it just my daughter that's "weird."
    Me and Daughter (18) both camped out on launch day, she came from the instinct and loves the Pre. I came from Treo 800w and also love it, just wish the build quality was a little better.

    LOL. Yeah, my son is 8 months, we let him chew and drool on our centros (his favorite toy right now) but when we get our pres next month, it'll be Rule #2 that the Pre is off limits. (Rule #1 is to not do anything that causes himself to become not alive anymore).

    While messing with the Pre the other day, there was a 12 yr oldish (I think) girl there with her dad. I was showing her dad all the great features of the phone (while the Sprint employee watched). She was all set to by some dinky phone. Then I showed her how to move around on the pre, she absolutely LOVED throwing things off the screen. Then she said to her dad "never mind, I want to get this instead." Dad said "the other phone will be free, this won't be."

    That is when I exited stage left, having done my good deed for the day

    It's not a smartphone... it's designed for the ignorant masses. How many posts on this forum have you seen that say... "This is my first smartphone..."

    Look at the join date on most of the members who are posting now... mostly 2009 (June is the most prevalent month).

    Where are the customization options... oh... that's right... Palm followed Apple's lead and decides what the "user" needs. Why confuse them with choices...

    I think if we're going to nit-pick, we first need a good definition of 'smartphone'. Since this definition will be subjective, I doubt it will be of much use. Sprint and whoever it is that insures the phone (TEP?) consider the Pre to be a smartphone but again, to my knowledge, I know of no working definition which they go by.

    I suppose as a first go I would say a smartphone is one on which you can install apps. But I know there are many phones out there which are labeled as 'feature phones', on which apps can be installed. Regardless, I'm willing to concede that the any dividing line between feature and smart phones is becoming more and more blurred as feature phones become more capable.

    Anyway, good luck arguing either side. It's really impossible to win an argument based upon a definition since definitions are so subjective.

    My 10 year old daughter uses my pre almost as much as I do...She txts mom's pre all the time "pre"tending she is me, she loves SprintTV, she picked up the swipes faster than mom did and she can txt faster than both of us put together.

    We are all patiently waitin for apps...

    Love the Pre!

    Smart is a measure of the phone, not the user. Also, since when does how long one posts on an online forum correlate to intelligence? When you design the ultimate phone that the 'masses' are too ignorant to comprehend, let me know how many you sell.

    Smart phones are like porn, I know it when I see it. The palm, htc touch pro, iphone, instinct, etc are smart phones. The razr isn't. Any questions?

    Also, my 4 year old and 2 year old love it. They have fun swiping the pictures left and right- yes I have insurance.

    My 12-yr-old daughter wanted the TouchPro, but I convinced her (she didn't really have a choice ) to have the Pre. She loves it now after using it awhile. she does complain about the lack of apps though. To add, my wife and two adult sons love their Pres too. We were all a Treo/Centro family before the Pre.
