    Palm better have a clause in their contract with the manufacturer to deal with these units. This could get expensive in actual costs, not just the pain of the poor PRPRPR. $I$'$m$ $good$ $so$ $far$, $but$ $if$ $I$ $run$ $into$ $problems$, $I$'$m$ $waiting$ $until$ $v2$ $arrives$.

    The Pres we have are the few that are passing quality control at the factory. Judging by the scarcity of Pres available for sale, one gets the impression that a large amount are failing QC at the factory. In which case the sales department would likely be putting pressure on QC to lower their standards just a bit. Like letting out Pres that have a couple of dead pixels.

    I think this is what happens when you contract manufacturing to the lowest bidder without any willingness to pay a little extra for quality. I'm sure Apple pays quite a bit more for it's manufacturing (after quantity is factored in) but it's probably worth it to them because they realize it brings in future sales long-term. Palm is kind of in the position that they have to get every last dime possible right now to keep the company alive and that means charging a premium price for a device with extremely shoddy construction. Hopefully, if Palm can survive the backlash from this tactic, when they have more money they will put out a much higher quality device. I'm feeling charitable these days so I will accept the low quality Pre for now but version 2 better be much higher quality if I'm going to remain a Palm customer.
