    Never left, never planned to, and CES showed me why I never planned to leave.... Palm didn't hit everyones expectations but it hit many of the big ones that could have been shown at CES.

    Have had my PRE since day 1, love the phone, and I am more than happy to see that Palm does care and is doing everything possible to upgrade us.

    Bring on 1.4...im dying for Flash and to see how it runs.

    Glad I never left my reading comprehension class!

    The title clearly assumes you left or are no longer using the Pre......thus no real reason need a "never left" button.

    I've used Palm based devices for years and do like them. My biggest problem, which is why I did eventually shelved mine for another solution, was their ability to keep data on the desktop synchronized with the device. And for everyone who is about to flame me for the obvious reason, "I don't do Windows". Friends don't let friends run Microsoft products, full stop.

    So I managed to gimp by with a few devices here and there until I found a great device in the G1. That is not panning out too well at the moment with the exception of Google synchronization. This is the one big feature of the G1, free data synchronization on the air.

    Now back to the Pre. I really like the Pre. Its features, its design, its physical size. All are very well thought out. I've gone in to the local Sprint store a couple of times to get familiar with the device. For me there are almost no reasons to jump over to the Pre today. Just that nasty early termination fee I will have to endure.

    So I'm with you, Palm fans. I just have to bite the bullet after waiting to see what CES would bring, and sign up for Pre on Sprint (and another thing I won't do is Verizon, who gladly hands all your personal data to the government without a warrant). Enough ranting for now. There is my $0.02 worth.

    In terms of the Pre and non-microsoft sync solutions, have you checked out Mozilla's thunderbird and sunbird/lightening? Both offer PIM desktop solutions with ota sync via google.

    "Double memory" means double the flash space, not RAM. The CPU is the same. The Verizon phones will not be any faster than their Sprint counterparts.

    Thank you, that is all.
    This is not clear at all. If you are stating it as fact, please cite your source. Personally I believe that they might be getting more RAM. However, I don't believe this is a fact either. We will have to wait and see in the tear down.

    Woops, I removed it. At this point it seems to be unclear. I guess we won't really know for sure until it comes out. There are a lot of sources that are saying it does, but it's so early that they could all just be cross-sourcing incorrect info.

    I love meeting rational, thinking people like you on the forums.

    Yea, there has been a bit too many vague words thrown about concerning "memory" the past few days. I hope it isn't true, but I fear that the Pre+ will just be a better performer. But it does raise my hopes that the full next gen Pre will be even more awesome! I have my fingers crossed that it will get the new tegra chipset.

    Well when the update comes in Feb I will definitely check it out. I have to say I'm excited about flash obviously, and the more open SDK. I think in the meanwhile tho I'm very happy with Android.

    I think the most important thing for me is will the app market start to take off? If it does than I would consider coming back to, and staying with, the pre.

    I was on the verge of returning to my Treo Pro for the phenomenal bluetooth voice command (it would literally read me my text messages), but I've fallen back in love with my pre because of the new games and Flash support.

    Engadget specifically discuss more RAM in their podcasts, that's their understanding. Additionally, Palm mentions working on performance and battery life for 1.4, implying this is independent of hardware updates. It would be interesting to see.

    I agree where is the NEVER LEFT option!!!! LOL!

    I love my Pre (and I love it without Preware and patches which I'm too chicken to do)

    Do you complain when you buy a computer and six months later a faster model is out? Give me a break.

    Also, anyone who would come back based on flash, games, and video recording is a moron. This basically implies that they owned a Pre and left because it lacked features that we knew going in it didn't have.

    Thank you for that enlightening and informative opinion. What would we ever do without posters like you!

    Did you ever think people bought the phone knowing what was going to be on it eventually and then grew tired of waiting for an update? Nahh.....why would ANYONE do that.

    Yeah. The more I look into it, the more crow I end up eating

    The problem is that they refer to the RAM as "internal memory", which can be confused for the flash storage (16GB). Seriously Palm, it's CES. The people in your audience know what RAM is. Don't be afraid of a little verbosity!
