    Well, I am a "man" - or at least a male - and not only do I have a PRE which I use on a daily basis but I also love it.

    So there.

    But. Perhaps that means I'm merely expressing my inner Female Side? After all, all of us are complex beings with components of the so-called male and female gender specific behaviors and instincts within us - men have feminine sides and women have masculine sides - so it's possible my enjoyment of my merely an example of applied Behavior Psychology and elementary instinctive Biology?! further complicate the issue, I bought an excellent Touchstone-compatible hard protective outer case for me Pre - which I picked up down at a local Verizon store though my Pre is a Sprint model (proving the cross-pollinization of phone providers as well as flowers!) -

    And my case is two-tone: the back of it is a somber Black....but the front is a muted but still strong PINK!

    It's the first phone I've ever owned with a pinkish protective case.

    So either that makes me a pink man.....a feminine-influenced guy....or as I voted.....a happy-with-his-Pre-phone ALIEN!!!


    (NOTE: my name is in secret alien code for fellow aliens:

    M = Malevolent
    I = Intelligent
    G = Gooey
    U = Uber-Species
    E = Endangered
    L = Lighter-than-Air-Levitator!

    I've been stuck on this planet ("earth") for too long in isolation and am hoping to receive some coded messages on my PRE (P = Powerful, R = Rubbery, E = Endomorphic) Alien-Messaging-Device

    The design is very elegant and refined. Plus the fact that it often sits on a little pedestal (the TS) gives one the added impression that it resembles a small work of art. I think it was ingenious of Palm to devote so much time with regard to how the device should look and how it should feel in the hand.
    So - does its refinement mean it's a chick phone? Not at all. It just means that those who like it and want one are equally refined.

    Didn't you know the Pre has the darn best alien technology? Roger McNamee sold me the phone and said so!

    So of course Aliens use it!
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ 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.

    I just wish it had a big logo or some distinguishing mark so people would recognize it. When the screen isn't lit up, it just looks like a random phone or coin purse. When people set down an Android or iPhone, people know what it is and may ask about it. I have yet to have someone notice my Pre and ask me what it is. I don't think they realize it is a phone unless I tell them or turn it on...

    i'm in no way embarressed by my pre but I must admit it does have girlie features such as the mirror, small dimensions and rounded corners.

    LMAO this poll made my day. Verizon marketing does not a phone make. LOL Pre ONLY for women? Really? I'd say it's more for a GEEK than a gender!

    What if the shoes match the phone and the belt? If it were pink I'd say...we have a chick phone.

    Also, don't take advice from taxi drivers

    I never thought of this phone as being gender-specific before I read this post. I saw some ads, but none of them screamed "girly". My impression of the phone was that it was more "Zen-like", with its river-stone shape and flowing lines. As a Buddhist this appealed to me!

    Look, I grew up in America, the land of marketing, and there's only two ways to make something for women: a cutesy image (like a kitten), or the colors pink or purple. If it lacks either of those things it's for both men and women. Mirrors? How in the world has the mirror become a female thing to own? I use multiple mirrors every day! Mirrors, in fact, are a marvel of engineering -- to spread and polish silver so thin is amazing.

    That they would even attempt to market this to one gender or another kind of boggles the mind. Like with cleaning supplies. I don't think I've ever seen a man shown with a Swiffer or Pledge. Yeah, I'm a man and I clean surfaces, too!

    I have a few issues with marketing and gender roles in America. It's an interesting subject, though, and one day I hope to read an informative book about it.

    to be perfectly honest, i seem to see more girls with iphones than guys.

    really i don't see *anyone* with a pre, in my country

    the idea that a phone, other than a pink one, can be 'for girls'? Bloody ridiculous.
    For now: Nexus One | iPad 2
    When avail. in Aus: Pre3 16GB | Touchpad 16GB

    This is a forum for WebOS enthusiasts. It is not a place for negative rants about Palm, HP or WebOS.
    Criticism is important but so is a positive environment. Remember, we're here because we love WebOS.

    I would sport this phone if it were pink and the default ringtone was 'It's Raining Men'! After seeing WebOS it didn't matter to me what it looked like. Plus a little Preware or WebOSQI can fix the girly stuff...oh yeah if it were pink...magic marker baby!!!
