    I'm rocking the MBW150 executive
    MBW-150EXEC | Sony Ericsson Bluetooth® Watch | Sony | Sony Style USA

    Awesome watch. I used to use the bluetooth feature on windows mobile on my old HTC touch diamond. It's a shame I can only use it as a watch now. Android has a program out that works with the watch. Come on palm release serial profile!!

    Agreed...I only use a small portion of the over 300 patches available via Preware, and most of them make small improvements to the phone. Granted, I can see how most Pre owners would be frustrated Palm doesn't make these small improvements on their own, but for what was, until recently, an independent company with a small (compared to Apple, RIM, etc.) budget, priority had to be given to making sure major updates hit and worked correctly. Besides, not a single other phone maker gives the homebrew community as much support and love as Palm does...even HP is aware of the importance of the homebrew developers who show true passion for WebOS. Apple would sooner sue their own homebrew developers and HTC would just keep pumping out "Cease and Desist" letters...as for Palm, I'm glad they allow the homebrew crowd to keep pumping out the little things...because in the end, those coupled with the bigger, official updates (and new hardware) from Palm will be what drives WebOS forward and towards what I think could be great success.

    Whew.

    Developers are what everyone complains about, but lets be honest here. What does the Pre not have except for Shopsavy, Shazam and voice search?

    Updates are therefore needed, but what Palm really needs is to open the API's up to devs so that the big names can port over their apps that require them.

    If the Pre had those features then I would in NO way envy my buddy's Evo. I love WebOS, but Palm does need to hurry up and get those APIs out to the Devs.

    What's taking so long?

    I think what has been taking so long with Palm & now HP is the simple fact that Palm knew they were headed to the dump and HP doesn't really have an interest in the phone industry and is just now getting there toes wet to see what they might or might not want to do with WebOS.

    I tend to agree with you about HP/Palm wasting man power on stuff we want for convenience, they should be working on getting it out there, known and liked more... This way the "Hombrew" community will expand. This was HP/Palm can work on optimization & future devices.
