    why so much hype about the PDK? Now a day Palm, Apple, Android they all talk about 3D games and more games for their devices. we already have PS3, Xbox, DSi, Wii, etc. On the Phone side, nobody talks how it can be a better phone. Lost of things missing:

    1. how about speed dial
    2. how about better battery life
    3. how about voice dialing

    We have speed dial. (Contacts>Choose Contact>Topmenu>Speeddial)
    Battery is getting better..

    voice dialing would be nice, I agree.

    If the PDK can get iphone devs to port it would be great for palm.

    The PDK allows for 3D gaming which is a very visually effective way to show off the capabilities of your phone. However, even with the game that are out now I still play Air Traffic more than any of them.

    But what the PDK should also allow is porting of some of the native apps from the iPhone to the Pre, which is a very good thing. This is all assuming the PDK includes API's which have some more general uses as well, which I would think they do.

    The pre does have speed dial but I prefer PhotoDialer and after the 1.4 update my battery usage is around 1% per hour. I am sure voice dial is down the road in the near future.

    Why get multiple games systems when you can do just about anything computerized with your phone. This things like a magic wand!

    It has voice dialing, at least I do. "Hey honey, call the school for me!"

    hehe. Yeah, I prefer the voice dialing you have to the standard one that some are clamoring for.

    wow. u have a nice battery then.. i'm like 1% per minute. so you last 4 days without charging your pre? (100 hrs/ 24 hrs ) = 4.1 days

    if u r a heaving user, i'll say u use 2% per hour, that's 2 days withouth charging!! Great

    Its not just for games. Any app created using C or C++ can be ported to webOS.

    Games are good and will bring attention to Palm. I'm not sure that they are really going to compete with the itouch and iphone though. Gamers want a bigger screen. I am personally a fan of being able to play 3D games on my phone though. Good times...

    so, will you get a PSP with a transreceiver in it? I feel like we're heading toward the game market! Nintendo should make the Ds with transreceiver so they can compete with Palm since now a day everybody wants a gaming device!

    3D games are one thing that distinguished the iPhone and iPod Touch from everyone else. Palm wants to show they can compete in that arena. Palm also wants to show that WebOS can do basically anything you want. The SDK + PDK + Qt is an awesome amount of support in an OS.

    Another thing about 3D gaming is it is currently something Android doesn't do very well at the moment. The Droid has the ability to do it, but no one has really coded for it.

    I can get 2 days on a single charge! But you've got to toggle data on/off when you use it!
