Excerpt: I have lived with the Pre for more than a month now and feel qualified to properly describe and review it. This review will also supply some insight regarding comparing it to the Iphone 3gs. To wit: Thinking I could just go in to my local Best Buy and pick up a Pre , I attempted to do just that only to be told there was a waiting list of more than a month to get one.
Summary: What can I say? This phone is the Colecovision of video game systems. A hidden gem nobody will ever remember but one of the most fascinating pieces of technology to ever be created. My Palm fell apart a few months ago, and I tried out the iphone for several months. Yes the iphone is better, but because I have a MAC it's also redundant. I just sold and bought a used Palm for 18 dollars and quite frankly couldn't be happier.
Excerpt: While the apps are awesome, the GPS does not work too well and the phone tends to overheat if used too much. The battery dies quickly if you are using the phone but it recharges quickly. I have had to replace it twice already due to corrosion so if you plan to get this phone definately invest in insurance.
Excerpt: I've had too many cell/smart phones over the years, and I can honestly say this is the best yet. This thing does everything and has the best OS I've ever seen, even in comparison to the iPhone. I highly recommend this product for the tech savvy or entry level, as it's easy to navigate and use.
Excerpt: Ive had a touch pro before and I hated that phone so when I got this one i loved it very easy to get to know I have alot of games on my phone and other cool stuff i have a magic eight ball app and my kids love that where they always want to ask it questions and i love how i can watch shows on my phone in good quality this phone is the best phone ever and the battery i dont have to worry because i ended up buying an extended battery for it
Excerpt: The Palm Pre might be the best cell phone/smart phone that I have ever used. Besides the phone's ability to multitask, the ability to sync all of your contact information, as well as calendars is amazing. I love how the phone backs up all your information on your online profile, that means that no matter what the information stored on your phone can be restored if something happens to your phone!
Excerpt: Love the phone..but sometimes I just have some problems running updates. I had to get a new phone because my old Palm Pre shut off randomly and overheated. Besides that I love the phone and would definitely recommend it.
Excerpt: Seriously to be a smartphone they couldn't make the battery life "smarter" and longer. I have no choice but to have a car charger b/c even after charge the phone ALL night, if I leave it on all day and talk for more than 5 minutes, that's a wrap on the phone! Now some may say I have too many apps on the phone but a different smartphone I previously owned as twice as more apps and battery life.
This phone isn't as cool as it is cracked up to be.

Excerpt: This phone has a few cool features, but there are definitely many more cons than pros. The battery life is terrible, the internet is super slow, making it almost impossible to do anything on the web unless connected to WiFi. It comes with only a few ways to personalize your phone, the rest must be downloaded seperatly. For example: you must download a patch to switch the text messaging alert volume or to forward an email. These patches take forever to download.
Excerpt: I really like my palm pre. It is very easy to use and has many apps to download. The games are very fun to play. The only downfalls that I have found with it, is sometimes it's hard to get the curser right where you want it because it is touch screen. The other downfall is that the hotspot will not stay connected to my wi-fi on my computer, but they are working on this problem. I enjoyed having my blackberry, but I really love my palm pre.
