    Had a launch day Pre. 6th in line. Had to trade it for a refurb a couple of weeks ago because of a crack by the USB port that was making it's way into the touchscreen.

    Yuuuuup, me too! Still on my first Pre since launch day. I like the Pre even more nowadays. I don't miss my Treo 755p anymore. I don't even miss PdaNet, although I wish I had tethering on my Pre.

    Few people have been more critical of the Pre than I. I bought back on Sprint launch day and I've had to replace it a ridiculous number of times for a wide array of hardware issues and limitations in the software and battery life constantly frustrated me.

    But the latest refurb I got back in October has been going strong for the last 5 months with just a little divot on the screen. Otherwise, the hardware has been solid with no problems. No battery issue. No screen discoloration. No power button issue. No reset issue. No keyboard issue. No slider issue. No USB port issue.

    And the software has been steadily improving. No, we haven't gotten an update that brings the Pre anywhere near the smoothness of even a first generation iPhone but it is at least usable. And while Palm hasn't overwhelmed anyone with improvements to the core software (I still have some problems with EAS and the core apps are still pretty slow) fixing the app space issue and the addition of video recording, OpenGL games, and native plugins are very nice.

    Battery life is still bad but it is better than it was when I first got the device and at least I can usually make it through the day if I don't use it too much.

    Add in the 55 homebrew patches I have installed to makes things work the way they should and I'm pretty happy with my Pre right now and use it more than the Hero I bought to replace it. Heck, I never thought I'd say this but there is even a good chance I'll buy the next webOS device on Sprint if Palm lasts long enough to launch it (but I'll definitely wait a few months after launch this time)!

    Bought mine launch day. Didn't have to stand in line, because the store I bought from had customers make appointments. Still have the original phone, still very happy with it. Each update has made it better, and the nice thing is they don't appear to be ready to stop.

    I was a launch day for iphone 3G,
    I was a launch day for Pre. I stood in line for both.

    The launch day for the pre was like waiting for my first jump out of an airplane. It was something innovative and something cool.

    I love my pre (it has faults) but it totally rocks. It's growing and it is evolving and it's next incarnation will be even better. There is nothing about it now I can't live with, but that is my personal opinion.
