    how will that help Palm?
    I never said anyone who was stoned. I said someone playing a game. It could be in an airport for all I care. The point is the ad would show 3 major selling features, quickly, up close, and they are things that would make the Pre stand apart from the iPhone and Android. iPhone can't multitask game and do notifications and Android can't play games. The Pre can do all of them!

    And just to adjust your frame of reference, not everyone who plays video games is a stoner. I play video game as a major source of stress relief. I do not smoke anything and I am currently in medical school working towards being a productive member of society.

    iPhone = market leader, so it is what you should compare too. But the proposed ad also compares to android. It is a very solid ad idea.

    Yes, you are correct. A smart phone is for more than just gaming. However, what has help sell the iPhone the most? The games. So why not feature them?

    yeah i know that the gaming is not the only thing going on for the pre, but if palm did decided to make a commercial about going at it with the iphone then what else besides the multi tasking and notifications are we going to make a stronger point with. yeah we have games which we already know in this thread, but what business "grown up" apps are we gonna shi.t on the iphone with? besides Epocrates which i think the iphone has also, but why else to make a commercial about business applications, we cant at the moment. so we have to work with what we have now. what would be your idea of a commercial since you are obviously out to just bash other peoples ideas?

    I have not cursed, I have not called names and I have given examples of how the proposed ad could be effective. All you have done is imply that individuals who play games are not "grown ups," which I do find slightly insulting. Currently, the video game industry rivals the movie industry in size, which would suggest to me that more than just little children play games. People fresh out of college still play games and they have the money to spend on smart phones.

    i thought that he was referring to being hi as in having a high score and his friend wanted to call him to ruin it, and once he got back in to his game his friend got mad cause his mission failed, but he may of been high also the op need to clarify that lol.

    fair point, I didn't notice that. Ok, remove the drugs and then make it into a commercial.

    Not saying this would help Palm. But this would be a cool commerical to show some of the phones features. Its hard to explain Webos people need a visual of how it acutally works.

    That wasn't an iphone comparison. If you'll notice it is a moto backflip in those commercials. My point was... Consumers like to know they can surf the web and make phone calls at the same time...why wouldn't they also like to know they can play games and receive notifications at the same time?

    the biggest point though is that Palm needs to advertise WebOS better. Just from their comercials I'd have no idea what makes WebOS great. It seems so simple to be...yet Palm can't grasp it.

    First of all, the number of Apps sold on iPhone are LARGELY games. So even if you aren't a gamer, showcasing the Pre's ability WOULD be impressive to the gadget public at large. Secondly, if you want to make the commercial more 'perfect' have his girlfriend call him, interrupt the game to ask him to get something at the store and check his schedule. Show a closeup of him doing all these things and then going back to the game. Closeup of awed friends...win. I feel like the latest iPhone ad where it shows someone playing games while on hold is intended to make it seem as though the iPhone is capable of true multi-tasking. I feel like Apple may be more aware of the threat of WebOS than Palm is....sad really.

    I'm not much of a game person myself, but I still think it is a good ad. idea. Most people would get that a 3D game requires a high level of performance which can also be used for 'serious' software.

    also want to point out that even for non-gamers, sometimes you want to show off the 'wow' factor of the phone. Whenever I whip out my Pre and show them Asphalt people tend to be pretty blown away. If you think the 'wow' factor doesn't sell phones, take a look at the droid sales figures.....
