    Specifically talking in regards to the next Palm phone. If you jumped to another device then you don't count, because I'm sure you would miss features of webOS that would obviously be on the next Palm phone.

    I'm asking because I realized today that once I eventually update to the next Palm phone, I kinda doubt that it will have a mirror on it, and that makes me sad. I actually use it a lot.

    So what features of the Pre do you expect you will end up missing because they won't make it to the next Palm phone?

    If it has a front facing camera, you can use that as a mirror.

    The form factor. I kinda have the feeling they will try something different to make up for the complaints on the hardware. I really do love the feel of the Pre in my hands.

    I also love the form factor and size - it is perfect for me.
    I hope my patches and apps will follow along with a hardware update.
    I also hope the touchstone will be incorporated in future palm devices.

    I'm REALLY hoping that the next phone is touchstone compatible.

    I'm also hoping that it retains the same material feel on the back.

    As with most all palm phone updates, nothing is the same so you have to buy everything new.

    I'll definitely miss the size. I'm afraid they'll try something bigger like the droid. I hate droids! I also like the keyboard which they will probably change.

    Assuming that it will add to the current phone (and not remove functionality) then what would there be to miss? Hopefully I will miss the name, because I don't like the name Pre (pre-historic? pre-menstrual?) but other than that, I don't expect to me missing anything...

    Not sure if I am with you 100% on that.... I do worry about changing or loss of touchstone..... but they are still the king of proprietary wireless charging... ohhh and there is that whole using the centro battery (and I believe Treo Pro had same battery) in the Pre.

    I'm fairly confident a new phone won't lose touchstone support. I would think the only issue could be if they make a phone of Evo or Droid X size that you might have to put it on the dock sideways because otherwise it would stick out too far off the bottom. Unless they put the magnet toward the bottom of the phone, then it would stick out far off the top.

    I would only assume that Touchstone support would still be a big part of the next incarnation but I would suggest that the new form factor would change "just enough" to require the need to purchase a new (and unique) Touchstone base unit to accomodate the new H-Palm phone.

    Would it make sense to abandon an award winning accessory and technology?

    That's my thought process, well that and they even made the new car chargers backwards compatible with previous Palm phones with the lil adapter they came with.

    I wouldn't want them to change the size. This size is absolutely perfect for me and for where I keep the Pre. I would not want a bigger phone nor would I want a smaller phone. And I wouldn't want the screen to be the size of the Pixi's screen; I love my Pre's screen.

    I love the physical slide-out keyboard. That is an absolute MUST for me.

    I love the taps and swipes and notifications of WebOS. And I love the blinking notification button (as opposed to the buttonless Pre Plus) 'cause it is raised, but I hope they add different colored lights in it next time around so you know what kind of alert you have.

    The Touchstone is a definite must-keep - and it better be the same Touchstone that we already have, as I have/need several of them!

    It needs to be on Sprint still, too! I've been with Sprint for ten years and don't want to change. The plan is cheaper on Sprint, too.

    I actually like the little black and orange pouch it comes with and use it every day.

    I, too, like the orange on the keys instead of the Pre Plus' grey keys. Orange rocks! Lime green would be the only viable alternative, IMO.

    WebOS and syncing with Facebook, Google, etc. features.
