    Hey all,

    You might have noticed that things have changed a big here... We've reorganized the PreCentral forums in preparation for the TouchPad launch and to clean up some of the mess that's accumulated over time. There are some new forums, and some forums have been combined where it made sense.

    Here are the changes:

    We've created new forums for the TouchPad, specifically HP TouchPad apps, HP TouchPad accessories, and HP TouchPad tips, information, and resources.

    The GSM Pre forum has been merged into the Palm Pre and Pre Plus forum.

    There's a new Future webOS smartphones forum to discuss the things that haven't been announced, along with what you're wanting to see next too.

    webOS smartphone accessories combines the previous accessory forums into one easy-to-find spot for your generic smartphone accessories.

    We've created a new Homebrew section that gives homebrew the attention it deserves. You'll find the forums for homebrew apps, patches, and themes there.

    In addition to the old standby Other handhelds forum, we've added Other tablets, since soon we'll have our own, and the competitors will be those "other" tablets (air quotes optional).

    There's been plenty of shuffling of the forums for a more logical organization that should make it easier for us to expand in the future. Your favorite forum or thread may have moved, but all your stuff is still there.

    Like it? Hate it? Lost and need directions in this crazy new world? Let us know!

    I like it! Bound to be some complaints from people that are used to the old ordering, but they'll get over it. Only thing I miss is Pixi having its own section, but that's probably because I have a Pixi. :P

    Maybe as Palm releases more devices you could separate the phones into groups like small, slider and slab. Maybe not. Just a thought.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    I like it... thank you for all that you guys do! Very nice! I've been an avid reader of this site and forum since the treocentral days.

    Much better. Never liked the "New HP Devices" section separate like before.

    Just one small pet peeve though: why is the tablet main group just called "HP TouchPad", rather than "webOS Tablet(s)"? We pretty much know there's a second one (read: Opal). Isn't a more generic name for the main group be a bit more futureproof?
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIΙ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    It may be a bit messy while we shift stuff around (bear with us), but I think everyone will like what Derek and the leaders have come up with for P|C.

    Pre2 could be added to Pre/Plus. I don't see why not.

    Seems to render differently in Firefox and IE.
    I get the "Sketch42" look in Firefox, but the correct view (with the new smartphones) in IE8.

    ???
