You're right.

Palm blew everyone away at CES last year... then the Pre was released... and the mass market heard nothing about WebOS... the commercials with that crazy lady sucked so bad.

the people are right, there are too many "common" features missing. The iPhone was the exact same way. the difference with the iphone was that there was no competition and the iPhone had the touch screen which was new and iPod functionality. The Pre has nothing to make up for the missing features
I know the iPhone and Android were not "full-featured" when they were released, but nobody wants to wait six months to a year for features. Especially simple, vital features like voice dial and camcorder.

I still can't believe I own a phone that DOESN'T have voice dial or a camcorder.
