Pre envy

rpa @ 7/24/2009 7:39:17 PM # Q
How about us Palm users who: a) live overseas, and b) don't want a WebOS device? The Centro is OK but the Pre form factor is much nicer!

My answer. Start liking WebOS b/c the Garnet OS party is over with the Centro. Might as well make the change because with Classic on board it's probably the smoothest transition. Unless you wanna wait on that Russian Vaporphone with ALPOs.

You could load Classic on the Pre when it finally comes to your country and run most Garnet apps.
Screw convergence
Palm III->Visor Deluxe->Visor Platinum->Visor Prism->Tungsten E->Palm LifeDrive->Palm TX->Palm Pre
Visor Pro+VisorPhone->Treo 180g->Treo 270->Treo 600->Treo 680->T-Mobile G1->Palm Pre

Thanks for the feedback. I am not keen on WebOS as I don't want roaming data charges that would kill me. If you can run Garnet on a Pre or if WebOS can work w/o a data plan, a Pre would be great. All I need is a PDA that syncs with Outlook on my desktop and works as a phone/texting machine.

Now just waiting for an unlocked Pre release in Asia....

Is it possible to set the Pre to only do data over WiFi? That would be an option, if there was a way to configure that.

Forward Text message problem

Show @ 7/27/2009 12:49:56 PM # Q
How long must we wait for the ability to be able to forward text messages?

I called Palm about a month ago and was told soon. I called them last week and they didn't know.

It's frustrating because as nice as the Pre is, it doesn't have the ability to so something as standard as forward text messaging that LOW END phones can do.

Any idea from anyone when this feature will come out?

They also need to fix the email program so it takes advantage of rotation.

The Pre is a Linux-based phone, meaning that at its nuts-and-bolts level, there is a very geek-familiar operating shell. If you're feeling bold, as I was, feel free to root your phone and take advantage of the improvements that the open source community has shared with us all. It's not very difficult, and the advantages far outweigh the expense of your time. Landscape Email and message forwarding are both available as automated modifications for our Pre.
