    If you don't want to search for the battery life stuff, this is what they say about it:

    Talk time: Up to 5.0 hours of continuous digital talk time

    digital, does that mean over 3g?

    I've got my Pre case and car charger on the way.

    I'm favorably impressed with the Precentral store. They were very efficient in processing my order.

    I agree with you, I have used the Treocentral store many times in the past, and I am sure I will use Precentral store in the future...

    But not to be a overly critical... I don't get why they are listing that they have Pre Cases... using the same case that was meant for the older Treos and claiming its for the Pre is kinda annoying...

    I mean... If we are claiming that any case that the Pre can physically fit in is a "Pre" case... then I have had a Pre case for 10 years already...

    The battery life for me is not a big deal. I already have to charge my Rumor every night anyway because of high use. If battery life drains faster on the pre then I will just get a backup battery.

    I asked about that and Dieter said that the picture will be changed when they get a unit. I guess they can't steal the one on Palm's web site. Seems like the vendor could supply a picture.

    What case did you get, if you don't mind me asking? I think Palm has shown a really cool case a while back. It's got an acrylic cover that flips out, with the Pre's back facing out.

    Has anyone seen that? Let me try and find a pic; it's really nice.

    No. It means digital, which is what sprint always has been.

    Doh, it's on the link at the OP!
    Palm Pre Goodness « Inside Sprint Now

    Are those accessories available now? I already ordered an Invisible Shield for the Pre (there was a code for 50% off) and will be getting the Touchstone AND the holster.

    C'mon Palm, here's my wallet, let me get it and move on!

    The one I got was the "Palm Leather Side Case for Pre". I assume that it's the same one that shows up on palm.com with the correct picture. (You can't even buy it from Palm yet, but precentral seems to have it available now.)

    The clear one on the leaked release docs looks pretty cool also.

    I am not allowed to post links yet, so add www to the beginning of it.

    I would like to see an iPhone 3G get 8.75 hours of talk time. Yeah RIGHT.

    When the holster arrives can you let us know if it's the same as the one on the Palm site? I was about to buy one tonight but was concerned about the Pre only uses a certain mini usb. Thanks!

    This one did not turn out to be a Pre case. I'm ending it back.

    It is the Treo case that shows up in the picture. They somehow classify it as "universal". The packaging is clearly labeled as "Palm Treo 650, Treo 700, Treo 750, Treo 755".

    Fine if you want your Pre to flop around in a case that is too big.

    The precentral store should NOT call this a Pre case.

    I must drop my rating on the Pre store to poor, until they fix this.
