    Friend picked the Pre over the Tour

    I just don't get it. I thought I had a friend of mine talked into the Tour, and then he showed up today with a stinkin' Pre. I didn't get to play with it much, but that thing feels soooooo cheap.
    The OS looked cool and all but come on....it's Palm! Has anyone here played with the Pre any? I'm just wondering what your guys thoughts are on it. I really haven't followed it much, but it sure does feel flimsy. Feels like the cheapo phones you get for free with a new contract.

    I played with one and thought I would break it, not well built. But there are rumors around stating the when VZW gets one it will be rebuilt. So I guess we will see :dunno:

    I had a Palm Treo for a while and hated it. Went back to a BB. I would never own another Palm.

    Never owned a Palm device, but I've heard too many horror stories of people who did. Actually I'm pretty sure this guy that I was talking about had a Treo. Go figure.:crazy:

    I agree!!! The keyboard is small and it was difficult even for me to type! OS was choppy, slow and laggy. Five minutes was enough for me to realize that there is nothing out there that's better than my storm

    Wirelessly posted (storm 9530)

    Has he played with a bb? Sometimes people are afraid of change, he might feel more comfortable with crappy phones. I didn't like it all, it reminded me of vzw's cheap NV line. Just be sure to make fun of him every time you see him and he will eventually change. Didn't you let him play with yours? (bb) keepin it clean here kids
