The app store is not limited to palm, you can go to any developer site and get an app. Also you can multi-task with 16+ apps running at once. Apple isnt to happy with the Pre able to connect to itunes.

Sadly, it looks like it's CDMA only for now. If a GSM version comes out, I'll give it a look.

EVDO/Sprint is verizon unless they are making a GSM version ATT won't be getting it.

It looks nice, but where apple has everyone by the balls is there touch screen, it's simply the best ever and nobody else has come close yet.

So I got 2 Palm Pre's, one for my gf and one for me.

Heres what I think of it so far:

* Calls are crystal clear from this phone from both ends.
* Gps is nice, espcially since its free
* Apps are being added daily so far, especially for WebOs Kit not being out for the
Public. 24 Apps as of today
* Can Sync with Itunes
* Camera 3.1 mega pixel. Was amazed how clear the shots came out and how well it
worked at night w/ flash
* Slide out keyboard is a nice feature but would like to see a touch screen add/on.
* Multi-task is where this fun really takes off. I've taken it up to 12 apps on screen,
While playing with Pandora, Searching the web, Camera running, etc. No Lag at all
* Chats/Messages are threaded to together and nicely organized
* Everything runs well together, the Universal search is a nice feature but its not
totally universal since it dont search your emails, etc.
* Websites load up in amazing fashion. Can load this website in 4 SECONDS USING WIFI
Even Sprint's Internet Connection takes about 6 SECONDS with the PRE!

Cons:
* Gf's camera doesnt load up all the time.
* No video Recording
* Not enough apps
* Universal search dont search everything
* Only 3 slides to put all your apps in, needs to be more
* Battery sucks ass.
* No Flash support, but does have YouTube app which works

Overall this is the best phone I played with so far. Blackberry Storm was ok, just didnt like the screen. Iphone has the apps but needs Multi-tasking.

I am waiting for Iphone to come out with Multi-tasking.. Was hoping they announced the Iphone 3GS has it but doesnt seem too.

Have heard mixed reviews on it.

I have the Google G1 and prefer it.

Still a Blackberry fan, but I like what I've read about this one.
