    My sister and alot of my friends have a DROID, and it's a good phone and all, I just didn't like the OS all that much, I never really knew what apps were open or closed, even after using an app-killer etc. So I've been geeking out on WebOS ever since I decided it had the UI I wanted, so I'll let you know later on today...

    I was planning on switching from my Droid today at lunch (and pay $600---ouch) but I think I'm going to wait to see what Apple has planned on Wednesday first before I take the plunge. Well either that or some good first impressions from other Droid owners.

    I'll post later today Best Buy doesn't open for me for another hour and a half. Or any Verizon store for that matter.

    I can't believe it. That's pretty dumb, imo. It shoulda been 1.4.x
    You only get 1 chance to make a good first impression, and that would've been 1.4.x right off the bat.
    Even after 1.3.5.1 and all its improvements, this is still an incomplete OS.

    Just got home from Verizon!! It took over an hour, but I HAVE my Pre Plus! It is BEAUTIFUL. Spending all day reviewing and learning how to do things. Planning on using this Forum to assist. Thanks ahead of time for your help.
    BTW, the time at Verizon was multitasking: adding a line for the son in college, adding the BOGO Palm Pixi Plus for him, changing plan to Friends and Family, increasing minutes, adding data to one line PLUS purchasing the Pre. The VZW worker was impressed with the phone, had had training, but was not sure how to do everything. She indicated there will be advertising/marketing AFTER launch. Just swapped out battery for one fully charged, and I'm off! Catch you later!

    I don't disagree with you but 1.4.x obviously isn't ready yet. Better to go with 1.3.5.1 than a buggy 1.4.x.

    THe phone is gorgeous. Slider a lot better and is so much faster. It has the 1.3.5.1 on it.

    I agree with that, but i think it should have been a major priority.

    Meh, the only real tangible difference we know of thus far in 1.4 would be video recording.

    It was written that there would be performance upgrades as well. They might be small, but that always gets me excited. Makes me feel like a kid playing Megaman again and how excited I'd get when I got capsule enhancements...so fun.

    It has been less than three weeks since Palm delivered the ability to play some incredible 3D games along with huge performance improvements and battery life enhancements. To suggest that they aren't making updates a priority is totally insane--as is suggesting that 1.3.5.1 represents an "incomplete OS."

    You really need to get it under control

    I never said they're not making updates a priority. I said they should've made 1.4.x a priority for VZ customers right off the bat to make that all-important first impression.
    I guess we'll know in a couple of months if the VZ customers agree with you. There is still alot missing, PIM and customization-wise.
    Most people over 30yrs old with businesses, medical or other serious jobs need a serious smartphone. Not an arcade.

    I fall into the category you describe, a 30+ year-old with his own business, and I use my Palm pre as my serious smartphone every single day. What exactly do you see as missing PIM-wise? Because Palm is taking that pretty seriously too. The recent addition of LinkedIn was a really big deal for me. The email client is robust and fast and unlike most other platforms I can be working on several different replies at once without having to save drafts. The calendar, especially after the 1.3.5 update, handles my complicated schedule with ease and is currently synchronizing from five different sources. I have over 800 contacts on my phone, both business and personal, and the global search still brings up my information almost instantly as I am typing.

    But, I still enjoy playing Tetris on my lunch breaks!

    Is video recording a must-have feature for the serious businessman who needs a serious phone?

    Replying to the edit now.

    Palm makes every update a priority for all of their customers. Don't you see how wildly unrealistic you are being to expect them to deliver a major firmware release only a few short weeks after the last one? The fact that they have been releasing enhancements and updates about every 40 days or so is quite frankly pretty astounding.

    Do you think they should have delayed the release on Verizon and wait until 1.4 was ready? That would have been a mistake in my opinion. Video recording doesn't do anything for the "serious businessman" as you say, and 3D games are far more impressive/relevant for the average consumer.

    In terms of their prioritization, getting 3D support out there before video recording was definitely the right thing to do. Also, 1.4 will be out very soon. Is every potential Verizon customer going to look at the Pre Plus during this week only? No, there will be plenty of opportunities for first impressions with 1.4 too.
