It needs a bigger screen. Maybe a newer model will help that out.

I am amazed that Palm has upped the Ante. Competition is good!

I picked mine up 8AM Saturday morning and have been using it non-stop. It blows the iPhone away right off the bat with multi-tasking (I can write an email and listen to Pandora at the same time) and I can copy and paste right now, not 3 years into its lifespan.

Oh, and if you join the Alliant credit union, you can get 25% off your monthly bill.

One more thing, it supports IMAP which means no more pinging your email every 5, 10, 15 min and wasting your battery, now email shows up instantly.

I've been trying to convince my brother to get the Pre so I can play with it. I can't justify swapping my Touch Pro out for the Pre. And I'd likely have to get a more expensive plan than I have currently.

I'm paying $52 (before taxes) for 450 minutes, unlimited text/data, sprint TV and navigation. Make sure to join the Alliant credit union for 25% discount.

That same plan on Verizon cost me $100 ($60 plan with 350 minutes + $40 internet) and limited text.

I've got a employee discount already (only 20% but close enough). Not accounting for discounts, taxes, etc I'm paying $60 for 450mins, internet, 300txt. The everything data plan is $70. I know not too much difference but still $10 for junk I don't want/need.

But...where's the "World Peace" app? Guess I'll have to call in that airstrike after all from my iPhone.

And how much is that TomTom going to cost? They kinda left that out of the presentation....

FYI... TomTom Navigator for Windows Mobile is ~$140. That doesn't include map updates which are released each year. So it will be interesting to see how they price the iPhone app. I would expect it to be somewhere in line with their existing smartphone pricing structure.

Palm Pre includes Sprint Navigator free. It's not the greatest but it's not bad.
