(Our younger audience might not remember this.)

    This is why Samsung clocked their Moment to 800mhz, so it can keep up with the A8 running at 500mhz.
    I remember ... damn, I must be old. But you're right, don't compare apples to grapefruit. Another analogy would be comparing two cars with the same horsepower, but different torque ratings.

We don't believe the term "immediate" was even mentioned by us, and we are sorry that people have read too much into this particular topic.
    The above quote was added as an editor's note to the original article that sparked this debate. Based on this I would suspect we will not see either GPU, CSS Transform, or Flash implementation in the 1.3.1 update. Probably just minor fixes and improvements.

    Uh oh...this is kinda like the scenario I wrote about on page 1. People are not going to like this.

    Whether Palm's comments were misquoted or they are backing out on what they originally said, it's going to turn into further Palm hate from the haters.

    And just so there's no confusion, I'm not the Palm hater...I'm the one that hates on Palm haters.

    Well well well.... Just like I said on this same thread (should be pg. 1, i think) --- I'LL BELIEVE IT WHEN I ****SEE**** IT.

    Yep, that definitely changes the scenery.

    If it is just a 1.2.x update I see minor changes/bug fixes being implemented, but if we are going to see a 1.3.x I expect bigger things.

    I remember someone on this forum spoke to a Palm rep who said the next version of webOS has some major improvements. This makes me think it will be 1.3.x.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    That's always the best course. We knew within our 30-day trial periods that the UI was laggy, and most of us (myself included) still loved the phone and is capabilities enough to keep it. So I expect nothing more from Palm and certainly put NO stock in any rumors like these, but if I get better features or performance in an update...well goody!

    How'd you come up with that name? I've always called my wife Pooky, because I never liked her real name.
    I've been meaning to ask you this for a while now. If she finds out that i'm "interacting" with some other Pooky (Pookie), she'll be very upset.

    Hey, I'm a guy that had to live with "Herbie" for years, I'll feel free to jump in the "goofy name" fray anytime I feel like it

    I keep telling my four daughters that one of them needs to name a grand-daughter after me. Herberta Wynette would be a cool name, don't you think?
