    now if you think a hero is better than a driod by all means vote. But I can bet most of us would take a droid over a hero in a heart beat.
    Agreed.

    It was amazing to see the Pre come from way behind within minutes of the first article, then fall quickly when it moved down, and then rebound again when they put it back, etc etc.

    It says precentral users know what they are looking for and only see the top headline before going off to the areas they are interested in.
    Right... it's simply psychological marketing skillz.

    If it's on top, people believe it's "In the NOW." It's the MOST UP TO DATE article P|C has to offer, and *I* can be apart of it too by voting!!

    If it's the third article, people feel like it's old news and would rather not participate at that point. They'd rather just collect news and then head over to the forums for more information gathering.

    But if you pin it... it's LIVE. NOW. CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE IN THE REAL WORLD.

    Same concept for end-caps at WalMart and other brick & mortar stores.... you see the end-caps with the most expensive stuff first, so most people just psychologically grab it first before moving down the aisle to see if there's a better/cheaper product or better value.

    What's most amazing to me is how much people don't understand themselves, their own nature.

    Like, what would the effect be of pinning a perpetually negative PALM stock on the P|C Front Page? People here would want to kill themselves for supporting such a crappy product and/or move on to another platform.

    What would effect of only posting positive PALM stock updates on the P|C Front Page? People here would rejoice. They'd put a smile on their face and then go tell their friends and family that they've got the best device ever made, and that it only keeps getting better and better.

    Those who contribute to the Front Page need to ask themselves...

    - "How does this make me feel?"
    - "Do people need maximum exposure to this?"
    - "Do people even NEED to read this at all?" (i.e. - negative stock updates)

    But yea...

    What's most amazing to me is how much people don't understand themselves, their own nature.
    P.S. - I hope that the Front Page contributors consider pinning that "REVIEW BOMB" thread to the top of the FP for just an evening. I'm almost positive that Google or Android users did something shady with the Hero, because it had 1,100 reviews on launch day!! While people with Pres have been objective in their [rather outdated] Sprint reviews, it has stayed at 3.8 FOREVER, and that needs to change. If nearly 13,000 people can vote in a worthless contest, I feel like a couple thousand could drop a review bomb on Sprint and at least get the Pre to a 4.2 rating or so... just anything greater than 3.8!!

    Total Votes: 764

    Why does this score show the Pixi had Won yet the BB 9700 advanced?

    ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????
    Read the comments section
    That is very odd. But, I wish they didn't have the Pixi and Pre so close together. It wouldn't have been good to have the Pixi and Pre competing so early in the competition. They obviously didn't expect any Palm phone to advance...

    Here is the explanation from the survey site for that round. I don't know what "far ahead" means with such low voter turnout:

    Marc Flores Says:

    Votes were counted at 9 a.m. EST and at that time, the Bold 9700 was far ahead. There was also a glitch in the poll that caused it to go past the 9 a.m. time and we saw several people voting for the Pixi over and over again.

    The Hero is the droid, isn't it? I thought they both were Droid OS's?

    That's what I did. I thought I wanted to buy the MotoDroid until I tried one in the store. Great apps, terrible interface and awful keyboard...

    I was very confused by this as well, it's stupid. There is the motorola droid, and then there is android OS. Droid is the name of a phone. dumb and confusing if you ask me

    The Motorola phone has a physical keyboard. A terrible keyboard, but it has one.

    There are also differences in how Android is implemented as each company has their own UI sitting on top of the Android OS.

    I wouldn't use either of them, in spite what they will tell you in the Verizon store and in the TV adds. I tried it, I didn't like it.

    I would have stayed with my Centro if the Pre Plus hadn't turned out to be such a great phone...

    I voted for the Hero, because the Droid's keyboard definitely sucks. If it were the Hero -vs- the Moment... I'd have gone for the Moment. But that's just me.

    But, I honestly don't think it makes a difference. The final match is the only one that will really matter, and it's most certainly gonna be the Pre Plus -vs- the Tour. Don't sweat it until you see the Pre Plus in the final match.

    They're both using Android OS... but not the same versions!! Hah.

    True. Motorola and HTS both have phone models with the name "Droid" and both run the "Android" operating system. Google has created confusion in the market, although not as much as the marketing buzz.

    Palm was much less confusion with descriptive names such as "pixi" and "pre" (NOT). And to follow up by adding a "plus"" Plus what? and Pre what?

    Google may confuse some, but they aren't as confusing as Palm had been...

    Forget about the Droid, Hero or and other phone except the BB Tour. If we think we had a tough fight with the 9700, we need to pull out every stop we can with the Tour. The BB and Crackberry folks are not happy. Right now there are 12603 burned voters just waiting to get back at us.
    Sprint: 2-TouchPad 32g, Frank.-Pre-2, Pre-, MiFi & 1-LG Lotus with Xlink tied to home handsets. Backups: 650 & 700wx

    HP Please release the CDMA Pre3 phones!
    We want them!!!

    I agree. I can imagine that beating the Tour will be way harder than beating the Bold. Hopefully all the iPhone and WinMo fans will vote for the Pre...

    yes the hero is down, lets show them some of or spotlight love, then crush them in the end. I voted for hero twice, just like yesterday when a lot of iphone people voted for the pre cause it is the closest thing to the iphone, since the iphone got knocked out of the race
