    Hey, it's time to put this to a vote, is the Palm Pre really a chick's phone or does the Palm Pre appeal to both men and women alike? Let's settle this issue once and for all with a vote.

    It's a phone... doesn't matter who it's geared towards. If it does what you need it to, it's a great phone for you...

    I have a Pre and I just sold one to my brother. It's as girly or as manly as a iPhone IMO

    Uh.. a more productive poll to see what gender owns/wants a pre would have been I have a pre and I'm a male/female | I want a pre and I'm a male/female (4 options total) or something along the line of It's not gender specific | It's a chick's phone but I bought it anyway | It's a man's phone but I bought it anyway |Who cares? It's a holiday, go outside and BBQ (4 options total) Just my 10 cents.

    Yes, but are you a male, female, or hermaphrodite?

    Ok, ok, this whole thing stems from the general hardware design of the Pre. Really, I think it has less to do with it "looking" like a girls phone verses a guys, and more to do with the fact of the Pre looking and feeling like some fragile piece of art or jewelry. My old Treo looked and felt like tool, a gadget for work. I knew it could take the abuse of everyday use. The Pre...I love it, but I always feel I need to keep it safe and be careful when using. It's elegant and beautiful and the first time I saw it, I thought it should be in a glass case on display.

    So, did they make the Pre as a woman's phone, no. ...but, the design is more like that of a really nice car you take out only on the weekends.
    Why can't the mobile device manufactures get that most want a touch screen and a front face QWERTY?

    Hey now. Check at the top, it just checks for male, female or alien. NOT if I am a male or female alien. Nowhere it asks asks for hermaphrodite. BTW, I am a male. James is for the late Jesse James(I was born on the same day as him), not in the same year.

    Well, it's got as much female curves as a phone can get I guess, so that should make it a guy phone! And that's probably why I like it so much.

    I think it's more because all the ads that Palm and Verizon ever ran positioned it as a woman's phone. Remember the "for busy Mom's" commercials? Remember the lady walking down the street using google maps to shop? Even the one-handed vertical keyboard made possible by being slightly smaller than an iPhone was done to appeal to smaller hands...

    If you look at old interviews, Palm acknowledges that they tried to "differentiate" by designing a phone that "could" be promoted directly to females because in their research they found that no other phone had been been designed/targeted that way. They just forgot to ask the important follow up questions as to "WHY no other phone maker had done that before..." Answer: "Cuz it is a stupid thing to do. "

    Remember when Cadillac tried to run an ad that had previously featured a man, and then used the same exact script but with a woman speaking the lines? The difference was the double-entendre because the lady driver was getting turned on as she stomped the pedal and raced through a tunnel in her powerful car... so guys watched the ads... but it didn't create any sales. Notice those ads didn't stay on the air very long... it offended women rather than making them want to get that car to be "one of the guys..." while making it less manly to their existing base.

    What Palm wound up getting from this foolishness is the "Boxster of smart phones". Easily something a guy would drive and appreciate - but just not something to brag about to people they don't know... OMHO

    If you feel emasculated because you think its a "chick's" phone, then you have insecurity issues. It's a freakin' phone get over it.
