    Well when I pulled out my Pre at the weekend, a friend of mine pulled out his.

    So that's two Pre's meeting in the UK

    But yeah, it's iPhone iPhone iPhone in London...yawn.

    One of my friends is an iPhone app developer, he's rushed off his feet. Totally brainwashed though. Told him I'd bought a Pre and he actually said that the iPhone provided 'the ultimate user experience' and was this in a casual chat

    I met a guy with a Pre at a bar last night. He seemed to like it, but had some nagging issues with the calendar and time floating around.
    Also have 3 people at work that have them.

    I've seen Pres all over the Detroit area for awhile, I can think of 20+ I've seen them around. I mean I know everyone that works @ Ford gets 22% off Sprint, so that could have something to do with it. I do think Verizon is starting to push the Palm phones HARD, and it's showing even more.

    But the oddest thing happened the other day in the bar. My friend told my other BB Storm having friend that it was the worst phone he's ever had (he now has another normaler BB). Then this really hot chick that was sitting w/us just busts out about how sweet her Pre plus is. And how the guy that made the Iphone made this one (she was confused and hammered, I just let it slide). She was most impressed with the calender and email integration. I tried to explain preware, but she was too drunk. yada yada,

    /cool story bro

    I saw two students here at UM using a Pre while on the shuttle. First time I had seen it on campus... usually I see everyone on an iPhone or BB.

    It's funny this thread started when it did. I am on my original phone from I believe around June last year. I know of only 2 other people that have one (other than my wife). They have had their for quite some time too. One bought his based on playing around with mine. The other guy had his for months, and I just today showed him that there was an app catalog...He had no idea!!!

    Well anyway there are two other co-workers that I noticed this week that got Pres. One got her's yesterday and I'm helping her learn some of the awesome features this phone has. She seems very impressed so far. In addition, on my way to my floor on an elevator, I see another woman playing around on a Pre. I could not help myself and ask..."I see you have a Pre...Do you like it?" She said she got it in Jan. and loves it so far.

    So for about a year I have only seen 2 in the wild. This week alone I saw 3. Hopefully it's a good sign that the sales people at the retail stores are starting to open up to Palm and Webos.

    I have only recently seen someone with a Pre in the "wild" since purchasing my Pre on June 6, 2009.

    And Reign25... Don't get too excited about hearing the Pre ringtone. I work with a person who has the whole Pre theme loaded on his iPhone. Wallpaper, icons, ringtones, the works.

    You should load the iphone theme on your pre... that way you would complete the circle of irony.

    haha cool stories. It's great to hear all of this and that I'm not the only one. It must be a good sign. Pre activity has either been vamped or we're are all just now starting to run into more and more. Coincidence? I think not.

    I work at a fast-food restaurant. Saw one person with a Pre today and one yesterday. Before that, none. Maybe the flood gates have opened.

    2 weeks ago my cusin came down from portland,OR ( to 599 Visalia,California). I haven't seen him in 6 years. I had to pick up my brother @ school, so my cusin went w/me was trying to look at my phone. But I had it in my center consle connected to my stereo system. When I tried to change the song(pandora app) he seen it and said "wow you have the same phone as me!" we both smile like little girls LMAO! That the only pre I seen. But my brother say he seen some in his high school. Pixi too. Sorry it long.

    that's london. Up here in the grim north, it's completley the opposite. A lot of people have a pre or know what phone it is

    I'm the only one in the office that has the Pre... and got laughed at by iP*r*i*c*ks. Told me "how can you buy something like that..."

    I've only seen two others in the past year. Blame Bell.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.
