    I believe PreCentral should get the PreTube section ready.

    Seriously. After watching the pres I looked at my wife, with her iPhone in hand, and I said, "now I know I made the right decision to ditch my iPhone for the Pre."

    Then she said "wait let me finish writing this email in Japanese" and I remembered the last remaining flaw...when are they going to release this thing in East Asia?

    Actually, Ruby said that _video_ would be on all WebOS devices running 1.4. Remember that Flash and 3D games will only run on the Pre/Pre Plus.

    It was stated that a Flash beta plug-in would be available in the App Catalog "soon." That means it could certainly be released prior to 1.4, and in fact I'm expecting it.

    Yeah I missed that it was for the Pre only. Hmm...so you're saying that he meant to say the official Flash is available on the Pre with 1.4, and the beta of flash earlier on?

    Well, now, that's a bit confusing, because what I remember seeing about 1.4 was that it would include the Flash _beta_. So, I think what they were saying is that a Flash beta _plug-in_ will be released in the App Catalog (presumably before 1.4 is released), and that it will be simply included with 1.4 (or, otherwise incorporated into it, if there's a difference).

    To me, those aren't mutually exclusive, which is what leads me to believe that "soon" means in the next few weeks. Certainly, before February.

    Yes, Flash utilizes the GPU, so like the 3D games it's a no-go on the Pixi.

    Pixi has a GPU correct? So it is not yet enabled even with 1.3.5?

    Not so sure about that now... read the new post about SlingPlayer on the main page of PreCentral. Sling Media just announced it will work with Flash 10.1 and they say it will work on both the Pre and Pixi.

    Well, it does have a GPU, so I mispoke. Perhaps its GPU simply isn't up to the task of running Flash et. al.

    Well, now, you're correct, the story does say that. It also says that Flash is to be available in the App Catalog after 1.4 is released. I think I'm going to stop talking about this subject until there's more consistent information available.

    Well either way, it's all good news! I wonder if Sprint is going to get the Pre Plus, or another version of the Pre Plus this summer, at the anniversary of the Pre?
  13. #33  
    lol I have a feeling we might be getting more then just a pres plus on sprint.

    That being said, who else noticed how quick the pres plus was! it kind of made me jealous...

    Do you think it was clocked at 600Mhz instead of 500? or could that extra 256 ram made that big of a difference?

    I'm hoping it was just the gpu being used in 1.4 that made it seem that quick.

    I guess only time will tell eh?

    Well, let me tell you the one thing that has bothered me about the videos, specifically they one where we saw the demo of NFS, video recording/editing, and tethering.

    How come they had to use three different Pre Plus' for those? I distinctly remember when they went to the NFS demo, she reached for another phone and Dieter says "Oh, you have this on a different phone?" And her answer was just "yeah".

    So, where these Pre Plus' hacked up so they would run only that one app and everything not necessary to run the app was completely shut off?

    Yeah thats what I was thinking or maybe it had something to do with one of the pres being gsm not cdma

    Also notice on the nfs game you don't go through a menu you just go straight into the game, maybe that has something to do with the load speed as well.

    What I really want this summer is a choice between a white or black palm pre 2

    Guarantee he was fired. The way Palm has done such a good job at keeping secrets as of late there is no way they can put up with leakers like that.

    Nah my Pre loads NFS faster than the Pre Plus did when Josh@Engadget did his demo on the Pre Plus

    Here's what I don't think the "it's a fake, not possible" crowd has considered.

    There are 2 possiblities (or a combination of the two):

    • The naysayer lied about what could be done
    • The naysayer was basically ignorant about what could be done


    Either way, they've pretty much blown any creds they have.

    and yet, some of them blather on...

    Most likely the culprit is Adobe. On notebooks Flash 10.1 do not utilize hardware acceleration if your integrated graphic is older / crappier than Intel GMA 4500 MHD.
