    That's why Verizon marketed the Pre towards women. They already pushed the Droid as a man's phone. It wouldn't make sense to market both of them towards men.

    I believe Palm made the Pre for techie people. Why else would they leave the OS so open for modification. They gave us all the tools we needed to get into the filesystem and do whatever we wanted to. They even gave us a way to fix WebOS if we ever broke it (WebOS Doctor).

    In the end, I don't really care if people say it's a girls phone. I've been using my Pre for almost a year now and it's the best phone I've ever had.

    this title souldnt be about if Palm Pre is a chick phone, but how many of guys are not comfortable with their sexuality. this debate should be if straight guys should wear pink shirt.

    c'mon guys.

    I still believe the pre looks like a rock.
    And i believe there is nothing more manlier than bashing in someones head with a rock.

    If it were a woman's phone they should have made it available in pink. That's the main reason my wife decided to get the BB Curve (it was available in pink).

    Do you use the mirror to help apply your makeup?

    I'm a woman, but all the people I've ever seen with one, including two at my job, are men. My old supervisor used to ask to see it on his break. He would repeat over and over "This is a NICE phone." That said, the flylady from FlyLady.net: Your personal online coach to help you gain control of your house and home has one and has promoted it on her site. She has TENS of THOUSANDS of followers worldwide. I'm hoping she comes out with an app for it.

    This is an iphone app a lot of people use with her program, no word yet if they are going to develop for the pre, but they did a poll for it:

    Works for me! I'm a lesbian trapped in a mans body anyway. I always knew that.

    I don't think phones have genders any more than cars...well, except for the Madza Miata and of course, the Volkswagen Beetle. I wouldn't be caught dead in a car with a lil flower pot stuck to the dash!

    The head of my department (who has an Incredible) likes telling me it's a woman's phone. I usually respond by asking how he likes wireless charging, or getting content on his phone from his home computer while on the road. He doesn't ask so much any more.

    Garrett92C said it best. If I want to do something w/my droid, I have to find an app. If want to do something w/my Pre, I do it.

    Hey, Popular Science magazine had a do-it-yourself article in this month's issue on how to stick a mirror to the front of your camera for good self shots (totally redneck looking - no offense to rednecks)... does that mean the camera is a now a woman's device because it has a makeup mirror on the front?

    Not if you use plenty of duct tape to attach the mirror...

    I don't think so, if anything the pixie is.
    Just because your sitting behind a computer does not give you the right to be rude to other's, try being nice you'll get a lot farther in the forums.
