    I had arthroscopic knee surgery the other day and after coming out of surgery I was using my Palm Pre while in the recovery room. One of the nurses saw it and made a comment on how cool my phone was. She quickly began telling all of the other nurses about it and before I knew it I had about 5 nurses all huddled around my hospital bed checking out the Pre. The one that originally saw it kept saying how cool it was and how it was much better than the iPhone.

    Sure I liked the attention, but I was happier to see the attention my Pre got. I want this device to do well, so it's always good to see it receive that sort of reaction from people. And even better yet when they say it's superior to the iPhone.

    Hopefully Palm can create even more buzz about this phone. If they get webOS phones onto multiple carriers soon, and before the iPhone ends its exclusivity with AT&T, then they really can give the iPhone a run for its money. The Blackberry is on all carriers and is enjoying immense success. While Blackberries are nice, the Pre has much more mass appeal like the iPhone. And if Palm continues down the path of tailoring the Pre for business use, it can be a great alternative to the business oriented Blackberry and best the iPhone in an area that it never took seriously. I really can see the Pre becoming the best of both worlds. It's what a Blackberry and an iPhone would have as a kid

    The as-of-yet untapped Nurse market. This is huge. Like unto Soccer Moms, Nascar Dads, Trekkies, and Subway Jared. Forget phsyco Flow Chick; get some nurses.

    I agree. A slick implementation of epocrates for the Pre would be excellent marketing too.

    Two questions:

    #1: How is your knee?

    #2: They let you use your phone in the recovery room? I can't even use mine in the waiting room.
