Why Didn't You Tell Me!!!!

Why didn't anyone TELL me the pre was so sweet?!??!? I sat there and played with it for an hour in the Sprint store. The camera can take 4 pictures before the HTC Touch Pro camera can even friggin LOAD. Multi tasking is a smooth and elegant breeze. Browser was fast. and the notifications DIDN'T interrupt what I was doing. Friggin' amazin'

I am sold. C'moooooon PAYday!

Re: Why Didn't You Tell Me!!!!

Actually I was pretty much sold when I saw the darn thing in January...but being jobless curtailed my tech purchases a bit...now that I am again fully and gainfully employed, me thinks me needs this phone.

I am looking to getting into the homebrew/rooting community. Looks to be some pretty funs stuff available in there.

You can download the sdk now and play with the emulator if you are interested in brewing your own apps. Here is a good place to start:

Re: Why Didn't You Tell Me!!!!

there are definitely a lot of pros about the pre, but there are definitely cons compared to my touch pro. i miss the amount of customization, im hoping that the longer its out the more we are able to do. i suck at developing anything so i dont bother lol. switing apps and getting alerts and what not is definitely a lot smoother, but there are just too many features and apps that i miss from winmo.

Re: Why Didn't You Tell Me!!!!

Yeah Sanmanc called my bluff. I don't know how to develop a thing

While I know there is some customization and (of course) programs that I might not have access to for a while, the efforts that the homebrewers have going have given me faith in the community over there. It's only been about a month, and (homebrew) apps are pouring in. there is a project to create a homescreen, there are ways to customize sounds...

I figure if I can get slick and smooth AND be able to customize (even if it is in the future) I will be happy to be an early adopter.

But I'll probably keep my Touch Pro for back up
