    But it is a very productive 5%-10% who are homebrewing? It's a shame that Palm don't facilitate access to Pre for that sector of the market in GSM land.

    Yes they could. It is a condition of submission of the patch that you agree that anybody, including Palm, can use it.

    I think they did, so I also think you aren't correct about poles and property, at least not entierly.
    Their swipe menus is actually different from the old patch was. The old patch actually brought down the menu when you started to swipe down, the way they did it has it bring down the menu after you lift your finger from the swipe.

    Palm reps sure are in Sprint stores a lot.

    Regarding LED notifications and other commented out bits of functionality, it's likely that either it wasn't finished prior to release or there was a problem discovered in testing, and commented out for later revision. Palm is not "hiding" functionality just so we can find it (at least, I don't think so).

    A POS cheap brand of ugly, horribly styled cartoon effigy's pretending to be automobiles.

    I'm disappointed to hear that a Palm rep made an analogy comparing a Pre to a Scion.
