    Is that normal? After updates, I still feels lethargic in its transitions from one app to another. I tap on the email icon, and it feels like 2 seconds go by before the app opens.

    Learn to use advanced gestures and keep cards open for apps you frequently use. Makes all the difference.

    I know the Pre has some lag but for some reason it's not effecting me as much. The way I run my phone is I only keep 1 app running and will close everything else and just reopen something if needed. I'm so use to WM my brain is wired to close everything down. I do admit the pre needs a speed boost hopefully they start that little turbo up thats setting inside.

    Exactly.

    One warning though.....NEVER use or touch an iPhone/iTouch.
    The Apple product is so lightning fast in comparison you'll wonder why your Pre blows chunks so badly in speed; especially when the hardware is more advanced in the Pre.

    I have to admit I dream for the PRE just to be as fast as my old TREO 600.... I cant even conceive of it ever being as quick as my Centro was....:-(... why do I feel like we are going back in time...

    This is sad but true..... I just took my iphone out of my drawer that it was sitting in the last couple of months and set it up as pretty much an itouch for my mother. I was blown away how fast everything felt. Palm really needs to address the speed issue. For example:

    - entering a name in to txt someone(up to 10 seconds, not all the time but at its worst)

    - using a hot key to make a call(6 seconds, if it even works)

    - answering a call, while doing anything else(50/50 chance of getting it)

    -general navigation(slow)

    remove and replace battery. I know it is strange but it will be like new.

    I'm not trying to take any blame off of Palm here because optimization is obviously needed, but a big reason the iPhone runs so fast is because you can only do one thing at a time. I jailbroke my iPod touch and when I multitask via backgrounder, the iPod can be just as laggy if not worse then the Pre.

    I just keep phone, email and messaging open at all times, along with any other apps I am using. There is no loading time when the app is already open.

    The whole idea of WebOS is multitasking.. the reason Apple didn't do it is cause of that whole lag issue, so if you blame the lag or speed on the multitasking capabilities of the Pre what the hell was the point of the device?

    I just close apps, I'm like the WM guy... I don't notice the speed issues as much due to this but it would be nice if it was addressed in a timely fashion.
