    Now that precentral is a lot more than just about the pre, I suggest the name change to weboscentral due to all the other devices that will be coming like the palmpad, printers, new phones that may drop the pre name entirely...

    This has been discussed before, if I recall correctly the admins do not care for that title.

    I've wondered why PreCentral is named after a phone, yet the rest are named after the OS There's already 2 webOS phone names. It's not like there's only one webOS phone like iPhone. What are they going to call it when the Pre model goes to end-of-life and becomes obsolete?

    same reason they have TreoCentral, even after the Treo ended and was replaced by the Centro.

    they were tipping a few cold ones trying to figure out how to keep apple from suing them for trademark violations. TIpping Pabst Blueirbbon became TiPb

    I like the name. Probably not possible due to copyright stuff. They could change the colors to black and Gold to show that like the New Orleans Saints, Webos the underdog that was never suppose to win can become champion.

    If you found my post useful then please sign up for a Dropbox Account, I could use the extra 250mb of storage.

    HOW TO: Zip/Unzip via Pre/Pixi using Terminal
    HOW TO: Modify DTMF audio (webOS 1.4.5 or earlier)
    Palm Pre wallpapers

    I think to avoid copywrite laws, wos or woscentral or wesb

    Tipb is "the I phone/pod/pad blog....so should be tipppb or add a letter for tiosb or I'm sure they could have gotten away with iosb
