It's CDMA, so US only.|
Looks a bit fugly to me - but be interesting to see what the new OS is like.
It looks really lovely! Yesterday's unveiling was great, according to Engadget (great live blogging) and PalmInfocenter the people were really impressed by the HW and especially by the OS.|
Now all it needs are applications for the new system and Palm's back. :-D
(Although I'd love to see a traditional handheld/palmtop, even if it's a "one last thing".)
edit: A 3G version is also planned, probably Coming Soon™.
It's more the OS that sounds interesting than the hardware, let's face it there are only so many ways of making a phone.|
uh though yeah I'll have one of those foldy screens please

|slashdot says it's HSDPA for the UMTS version so will be available over here with some operators I'm sure|

|The OS looks amazing, hopefully Voda will bring it out over here in the UK. I've been looking for a replacement for my battered old Treo 650 for ages.|
Pre what? It's missing half the name. Maybe the designers only had limited space for the title.

|Their new OS does sound pretty interesting.|
|The charging station-thingy looks great. What a fantastic idea.|

|How good is the Pre going to be as a business device? Email, MS Word and Excel? Thinking of recommending it to my Dad. Warned him off the iPhone - it's really more of a multimedia entertainment device with cellular capabilities, to be honest - but there's been good buzz about this, might suit his needs better.|
After watching the launch video from CES I'm really impressed by their OS. The device itself isn't the prettiest but the way the whole thing works is excellent. I'm surprised there hasn't been more discussion about it on here.|
|I want one. Hurry up and announce some UK launch plans you Palm slackers.|

|Why oh why is this taking soooo long to come out, not even Apple had such a long period between announcement and release of a phone.|
|Does sound noice. All about the dollaaaa though and contract length. 2 years for the States which is terrible.|
Yeah I dont think O2 will get away with that here. Although that is what they have for the iphone at the moment but that's probably cause they are about to lose exclusivity on that. |
Come and get it cumslingers!
After my initially cool reception to this phone, I have had time to learn more about it and even register with palm developer site to write some apps for it. I really can't wait to get my hands on one now.|
The OS looks really nice for something running on the top of Linux. It seems to be fast and responsive, which is a damn sight more than can be said about my samsun omnia running Windows Mobile
Ideally they will sell it unlocked for those of us who already have contracts with our preferred suppliers.
Edit: Looks like Play will have an unlocked version at some point - yay. http://www.play.com/Mobiles/Mobile/4-/8852338/Palm-Pre-Sim-Free-Unlocked-Touchscreen-3-0-Megapixel-Mobile-Phone/Product.html
Fuck, 02 have crappy recpetion in my building. Oh well, really happy with my Blackberry 8900
|The Pre looks lovely, be interesting to see how it compares to the next iPhone|
Not as bad as iPhone exclusivity, as the Pre isn't the only Palm WebOS phone, just the first. They've said that there are at least two more in the pipeline, one of which is going to be Treo/Centro like (or to cite a more current example, Blackberry like) with a qwerty keyboard on the front below the screen.
