    Hey guys.
    Bought the pre 6 days after launch. I was quite excited.
    I was assured by online sources and some unreliable Sprint people that the Palm Pre will be having video recording soon.

    June... July... August... September... October, and November is right around the corner.

    So when is soon?

    Not until at least March of 2010.

    I forgot where but during some interview it was asked and it was late first quarter 2010 and someone had posted it in another thread.

    What did Palm themselves say? Can't remember at the moment...

    If I were you, I'd use a real camcorder. There's no phone on the market that I'd rely on for such an occasion.

    Sure - but camcorders aren't always there..

    My Pre on the other hand is always in my pocket.

    When it gets close you really need to have a duffle bag with clothes for the hospital and all in it... Just stash a camcorder in there.... and carry that bad boy everywhere you go. Don't do what I did and wait til the last minute that is horrible and only makes the labor pains worse due to the stress.

    I think he meant more for when the kid is out and about in the world. The random unexpected occasions. Not the birth itself.

    Duh! LOL....

    Fail for me.

    Course, by then... The Pre should have the video recording feature and he definitely mentioned her due date.... So who knows. Either way it is kinda silly that it is taking so long to get on the phone.

    congrats!

    hopefully by then, if palm hasn't offered a solution, the homebrew community will have made inroads to a less complicated recording solution.

    I have a feeling that, in the first few months, you won't think twice about lugging a decent camera with you along with the other accoutrement of new-parenthood.

    besides, Its a great time to (if you can afford it of course) convince your wife you need a new DSLR with HD recording AND one of those flipHD recorders.
    There are four lights.

    thanks I actually have a canon 5d mark II which shoots 1080p (I'm a photographer in SF - http://mvgals.net ) - but I don't anticipate lugging it around all the time..
