    I am skeptical of people who bolster their arguments with name calling and other childishness. It's a quirk I have.

    This would always slow my Treo Pro to a crawl. I haven't missed that at all!

    Fair enough. I respect that. It could be an optional feature, no?

    Yes i didn't mind the feature as much as the list growing everytime i miss typed. A fixed or manually editable list with an on/off feature would be fine.

    Re dumb phones versus QWERTY smart phones: Nevertheless, extended typing on a smartphone is less than convenient. I presume that is why the 800w and newer models had/have word completion. It's about customer convenience.
    Everything is has a plus and minus. A dumb phone could easily do predictive typing because it was doing so little else. The Pre (and other smartphones) are doing a LOT of things in the background. Scanning a list of words for each character you type adds to the tasks it's performing, and slows down the device. Personally, I'm glad the list is so short.

    I suspect further, that one of the issues is that those phones paid for the T9 technology (it's patented), and the Pre uses a different system. That system is probably less efficient than T9. Palm likely went that route because they have a qwerty keyboard.

    And it is an optional feature. That fact that Palm didn't provide the feature doesn't mean it's not an option.

    Palm provided the easy access so optional features like that can be provided.

    I hate the text completion! Not to say it should or shouldn't be a feature, but I don't find it all that useful with a full keyboard.
