    Well, I sent my Pre for some repairs (to my insurance company).

    At the time, they said they will repair it, now it seems they want to replace the device.

    They said they are unable to get ahold of a Palm pre.

    So "similar devices" will be offered.

    So i was wondering, what do you think they would offer me?

    granted hardware wise (in terms of processor etc) very few devices can match the Pre.
    However i highly doubt they would give me a Iphone 3gs....

    So what do you guys think?

    a blackberry? personally i have no clue :S

    If you push back and tell them you won't accept anything else... they will find one for you. Sounds like someone at that company didn't feel like working very hard that day...

    Ive heard some pretty bad things about the HD2 software wise.
    The two ive personally tried to fix for friends were random rebooting all of the time, couldnt access features, wouldnt register with windows 7, things like that.

    I really dont know anything about the n900 but it looks okay.
    I would push the company for the pre and see what happens, if nothing happens find out which one you can sell for more, get it, sell it, get a pre
    Current: Palm Pre 2

    Windows Mobile skinned heavily with HTC Sense. It has received some damn good reviews, the best Windows Mobile phone out there. It has a huge screen.

    The N900 is a good phone too but I think it is suited more to those who want to tinker with their phone.

    It's hard to believe they can't find a Palm Pre in there for you. Is this a permanent replacement or temporary?

    Don't buy Nokia N900. I know phone is great but one bad thing. Resistive screen, no multitouch.

    permanent............:S

    I'll see this week if they can source it from somewhere, or if i can get some more options.

    Ask for pre plus as i think the pre will soon be discontinued in favor of the pre plus

    well it seems they cant get ahold of a Pre or a Pre Plus. Seems O2 insurance are the only ppl who can and not my insurance ppl.....something to do with "exclusive to o2" sale thing.

    Ah well, now waiting for an updated list of "alternatives".
