I hope the calculator has an advanced mode that we haven't seen. Its my opinion that a Facebook application isn't needed after the integration of Facebook contacts they've already mentioned. I'd bet Sprint will get a version of Sprint TV on there, and I hope Sprint Navigation works as well.

There might be a Facebook app that could possibly ship with the device. In this pic, there is a Facebook icon on the bottom center.

Yea, I saw a video clip somewhere that showed off the Amazon Music store. Listen to clips, buy DRM free music on the phone & transfer them back to the PC is desired.

I remember reading somewhere on this site that Palm is partnering with DataVis who I believe ports Word etc now on Palm devices.

If I am not mistaken, in the massive hands on video that Dieter posted the man demonstrating the pre mentions it. I am not 100% sure because I have just about overdosed with info on this.

The COO at facebook presented at the Keynote. I think a facebook app is pretty much a given.

I hope, like most of the Treos do, Documents to go gets bundled in with the Pre. Other than that, I'm happy with all the Pre has, great PIM suite, music player for podcasts, a great web browser. Oh, an Audible app bundled would be awesome as well.

There needs to be an app for directory assistance, movie listings, etc. Like ms live or google maps. I use live search app all the time.
