    Now that we have a new camcorder, let's have some fun with it and show Palm how to promote this webOS thingy..

    Members of your Pre|C family have taken their personal time to put these commercials together.
    Please take a moment to check out the creativity that is bubbling beneath these links (and feel free to comment) --


    ---> Check out this Totally Palmed article on one of the commercials that IcerC made right here!

    LOL, badjokes, you call that a commercial?
    We're supposed to be showing Palm how to make a catchy, memorable piece of advertising.

    But thanks for trying, badjokes.
    Thanks for trying.

    An idea could be great if it were managed well. Why not propose the guys at Precentral run a contest for best Pre videos?

    Flood youtube with the coolness of the pre, make the contest a big deal, have different groups of people demonstrating multitasking on the way to the club, out running errands, or beside their favorite hang out spot.

    With 20 or 30 videos, it would bound to be attention somewhere (Engadget easily) especially if they were done well. Couple that with a nice twitter spree, and suddenly out have articles talking about all the WebOS fans which might help as far as positive publicity (and eventual sales) are concerned.

    I was wondering how long it would take for somebody to ask me that.
    I have some ideas that i'm cookin' up. I was just hoping you guys could post some in the meantime, i'm really looking forward to it.
    When i make mine, you all can have a good time commenting (laughing) about it.

    Once you have a list of people (maybe 20?) and different criteria that each video is to meet, you all take videos describing the benefits of the pre.

    badjokes had an interesting idea, showing the tethering ability and speed. Of course, others would focus on different elements: some could be done outside on the way to a club, in the car en route to an appointment, in the home calling a friend--all while multitasking.

    Then once everyone has goon through the videos, assemble them in one big thread, have a Precentral front page article as well as a twitter push, then get some positive coverage for palm as all the sites cover it, while reevaluating the Palm Pre entirely.


    If you would like to help save palm, love your phone, and think you can effectively communicate your phone's positive aspects, step forward.
    That's an interesting idea. Hmm...

    Someone can run with my idea:

    Spoof the iPhone talking/multitasking commercials by depicting someone taking a call, opening up a game (still while talking), checking email, reply by SMS, and creating a dinner appointment in calendar...all without closing an app!

    (might need a Pre Plus, since it has more memory...cant risk the "too many cards" error popping up)

    I'd probably win hands down with my worlds-first kermit the frog ukulele cover:



    I mean, who wouldn't want a pre after watching that?

    correct me if i'm wrong but i thought if you were on a call, on a pre, you couldn't send email or surf the web. I know for sure you can text if on a call. My assumption was that you need to be on wifi in order to make a call and email/surf. Is that correct? If so, is that the same idea with the iphone? Or can the iphone do both without being on wifi?

    You are correct. On CDMA devices, you need wifi to be able to do simultaneous voice and data.

    My idea does not circumvent this limitation, but advertises the multitasking abilities of webOS. While on a call, you can check your email (not send or receive, although you can send and it would be cached for later), send an SMS (doesnt use data...MMS does), play most games, check and modify your calendar (again, uses cached data), and more! I think its a great way to advertise that webOS is not limited.

    We could bail Vince,the Shamwow guy, out of the joint and have him put together a commercial which shows off the phone.

    Could also revive the guy from these videos, which are hilarious.

    yea, I completly agree, I wish the ads on tv would do something like this, kinda similar to what the iphone ads do, except the pre would look much cooler.

    is iphone a CDMA device? does it need to be on wifi for voice and data?

    No, its a GSM device in the USA. It can do simultaneous voice and data without wifi.
