    Why is Palm still running the same weird/boring commercial with that spaced-out chick? It's more like an ad for a feminine hygiene product than an advanced smartphone.

    I haven't even seen it yet. Granted, I don't watch a whole lot of TV with commercials -- just sports; other TV shows I watch recorded, sans commercials -- but I've still seen the 'iDon't/DroidDoes' commercial a thousand times, the MyTouch3G commercial a thousand times... and no Pre commercials. Guess they aren't figuring it plays well to the demographics watching sporting events (NFL and MLB)?

    I've heard about the commercial on the forums, and no one seems impressed. That's too bad. Hope they come out with more and push it harder.

    Yeah, it makes me wonder how they could develop such a fantastic device but drop the ball so bad in marketing it. It's almost like that don't want the masses to know details about the Pre...weird.

    People are talking about it, so I guess it's working.

    If they made commercials like the "Meet My Palm Pre" segments from Canada, then they would be more effective and actually showcase the advantages of the Pre.

    If only Palm advertised like Nokia:

    It's pretty much the same way they dropped the ball on the calendar, txt fwd, notification nags, customization and functionality.

    People on precentral? I'd hope so.

    From my experience with nontechies, they do know about the Pre. They just have no clue what it does. I still get asked (on the rare occasion it's even brought up) if it has a browser like the iphone. Can you listen to music?

    Actually I can't recall the last time I have seen a Palm commercial on T.V. The last one I've seen is that dumb Sprint one with the Dunkin Dougnuts and that was a long time ago too.

    I've seen the Hero commerical more.
