Then, once you realize that it's a phone and not a laptop, it starts to become a bit cumbersome... Especially when trying to make a call. I'm sure most of this is just trying to get used to the touchscreen and running the phone as an app. I like to make calls quickly when I need to, and you have to go through a few steps to get there with the Pre.

    I am more than anything dissapointed with the signal reception. I frequently miss calls. I have called it from my BB while holding the Pre in my other hand and it would go directly to voicemail. It's done that at least three times now.

    I would say this phone is better suited for someone who is primarily wanting a good phone browser and is app driven, not a serious business user.

    Long story short, looking forward to taking it back in exchange for the Tour.
    Not to mention that its made out of plastic and feels very cheap

    i played with the pre fr a few days.. and with my big hands i fealt i was clicking the wrong places touching wrong icons.. it was nice when i went to the area i was intending to go in the first place but not the fone for me.. i like the speed over wife of internet... the color was really nice on the screen quality the phone was really light weight i fealt for a slider fone... needed to be a tad bigger and the touch needs a lil freshening up and that fone is the shh** i think so

    I have heard that. I picked it up at sprint and didn't really like anything about it. I was gonna get one for my wife but she has nails and the screen wouldn't respond very well to the touch of plastic (fake nails)

    That guy from Big Trouble in Little China would be screwed. No palm pre for him:haha:

    i had the Pre for just under 30 days.

    My overall impression of it is it's a great device! Palm has stumbled on to something big with WebOS, the simplicity of it to the real potential it has, bundled with the raw power of the device itself, i think with some tweaks it could turn into something great.

    Honestly i would still have my Pre if it weren't for a few things.

    1) Battery life is terrible, i couldn't make it through a day at work without having to plug it in, esp. if i had to go somewhere after work i would have to make sure to charge it up so it would go the extra couple hours before i got home.

    2) i went through two Pre's in that 30 days, the first one was just odd, when it was charging or whenever it got warm , say a lot of heavy web browsing or downloading video's the bottom of the LCD turned yellow when it warmed up.

    3) the second Pre had a terrible wobble in the hinge, some have dubbed it "The oreo effect" you could twist the phone on the hinge. it'd be one thing if it started doing this after a year of abuse but within the first 3 days? so i decided not to go with a third Pre and got a Tour.

    i love the features of the Pre and i think WebOS is amazing but i also need a device thats going to put up with my abuse for at least a year (i go on average a year between phones) i'm not hard enough on the phone to need a military spec device but i need it to do what it was intended to do.

    so maybe by this time next year palm will have some more durrable phones out and i may try it again. but who knows, i'm loving the blackberry so i may decide to stick with the blackberry OS come a year from now
