The palm treo pro was the biggest piece of junk. 8 phones later I just keep it because it could be the a lot worse.

As a pre owner on sprint I can tell you that the phones form factor (vs that brick iphone) and its ui experience are above both the droid and the iphone and with the new update coming in February that will bring flash to these devices as well as probably tweaking the overall performance of the os by using the gpu I hihgly recommend grabbing the pre for 30 days at verizon.

one more thing... the touchstone charger is another big win. I highly recommend having that charger, esp since the needed back is already on the vz version.

This phone is "hands down" awesome.

Once you try out the multi-touch screen and multitasking capability to run multiple apps on the Palm Pre, you'll never go back to the Palm Treo. The Palm Pre is awesome, especially when you can use it as a wireless router and charge it wirelessly. Also, running the turn-by-turn GPS navigation software while listening to Internet music through pandora is something you couldn't do with non-multitasking smartphones...with the Palm can.

The Palm Pre Rocks!!! It's nice and classy look with all of the features makes it worth getting! Multitasking abilities and user friendly software makes this phone a great phone and the super fast processor makes this phone a beast! i love this phone!!

The pixi is a piece. I have had it for less than a year and it is acting up like my 4 year old phone that I had before this. touch screen doesn't work very well and everything is slow. It turns off randomly. I hate this phone.
