Tomorrow. Excited about all the new goodies but I can't imagine what they could do for hardware that would have me dying for an upgrade. Video chat maybe but there's no way that's gonna happen.

A co-worker got one; in the five minutes I played with it I preferred it over the iPhone.

The Palm Pre looks pretty cool. I have yet to really see a touch phone that i like tho, in the meantime I'll continue to use my sexy Blackberry Bold.

I heard that Apple are going to raise the bar of innovation by adding a camera to the front it.

This dude's got a pretty impeccable track record on predictions—sounds like the phone will be improved in many under-the-hood ways, not so much in flashy, marketable ways:

iPhone update: MMS, cut/copy/paste, new software version, TomTom text-to-speech (too bad it's not Garmin) ... nothing else really notable.

iBook updates with speed and lower prices, but imo still way overpriced for the low-end laptops.

i still don't understand why the OS updates aren't free for touch users.

They just announced the new iPhone 3GS, with a new camera and video capture abilities.

I don't know why I care - I'm not an iPhone fan.

No surprises, really, except for AT&T's ball sucking ability. Fuck this company is one useless piece of shit.

Speaking of the no tethering? It's weird because you can tether their BlackBerries.

The no tethering, and MMS is coming but not until the end of summer. It's inexcusable that the phone hasn't done picture messaging from the beginning, but to now announce it's in place for most carriers other than AT&T is just a joke.

AT&T's the best carrier nationwide, so not really. Verizon's OK but the lack of GSM kills them imo.

AT&T is actually the worst carrier nationwide but ok.

pretty underwhelming wwdc presentation today. a lot of windows/palm bashing and that's it.

I'm really looking forward to getting a pre when my phone is eligible for an upgrade. I'm actually pretty happy with sprint.

same here wally. can't wait 'til next february.

Although you should know that if you use an Exchange email account, it is not *fully* capable of supporting it. PIN support and remote wipe are not supported features and many organizations use them for their obvious security benefits. This is not to say that Palm does not plan on implementing those features with a software update, but the Pre does not support them at this time.

I thought there was a water strip or something that changes color? My friend works at apple.. Gm or something he's always helped me out.. They are usually good about replacing shit .. Whatever I gotta bring my laptop there anyway tomorrow

ya if they open it you're fucked but i gave them a plausible story, they hooked it to some diagnostic machine, couldn't get it to boot into any mode, checked to see if it was registered (it was), and just gave me a new boxed one.

my iphone is kind os busted around the headphone jack where the volume control also happens to be. i can't use the mic on any headsets with my iPhone now [I can hear people, but they can't hear me, and no it isn't muted and yes, i used 4 defferent headsets]. Also, if I put my phone on vibrate it just vibrates all the time for no reason or if you touch it in a certain spot. i really don't feel like sending my phone off for several days so i am going to wait to buy the new one. the selling point for me is not the video cam, it's the space. no more 8gb for me.

massagers/dildos probably don't cost that much topleybird, just go to an adult toy store
