    More info for us Canadians. I spent 30 minutes with Palm Technical Support on the GPS problems we have been experiencing of late. They admit that there is a service ticket open for this problem although they thought it was resolved. In any event, while on the phone, I raised the issue of paid apps for Canadians and I was told that there is a support ticket open on this issue with Palm and that Palm has yet to resolve the problem and that Palm has not given them an ETA for the resolution of this problem.

    The guy I was speaking to seemed to be well informed and it did not sound like a canned answer.

    Thanks. GPS today seems to be fine in Vancouver, yesterday was wonky.

    I'm fine with the gps, except, i want a gps app... I currently use google maps, and it's fine, but would like step by step directions.

    I am also very frustrated with the content available to Canadians. I was so excited about the pre that I got it on the first day... big mistake since Bell has since dropped the price to $0 with a 3 year contract. Anyway, the App catalog has been giving me a lot of trouble, allowing me to download an app, then requesting a system restart, and after that a message saying that the app is not available in my country. Unfortunately either due to different privacy laws and mobile providers or more likely our relatively small smartphone market, us Canadians get the shaft.
