    The reviews of the Touch I've seen say the new touch features are limited to the launcher, so I'm thinking you'll have the same experience otherwise that you have with any WM device. I haven't used WM so I don't know if that is good or bad..
    The touch system also works for scrolling outside the launcher, and for showing web pages around. Its actually pretty cool.

    Notice the scrolling of the list here.

    Notice they always use the phone one-handed in the demos.

    I'm buying this strictly as a toy (at 310) but then I like shiny things The phone I really want for real work is the HTC Kaiser (HSDPA, GPS, WIFI, Bluetooth, keyboard, tilt-up screen etc)

    Comparing a phone to a chick...is well...um...pathetic.

    Better to get your stroke on more often, and keep the gadget comparisons within the same species.

    Just looking at the votes, its a pretty even spread with quite a large sampling. Anyone want to attempt an interpretation?

    My take: Most people think iPhone will be a success, to varying degrees. They also think Treo isn't really in the same class and so it may not affect Treos directly. BUT Treo is lacking so it may go by the wayside anyway. JMO from looking at the poll.

    Yeah, I think Treos have more to fear from $100 smartphones like the Blackjack than the iPhone. Palm is roughly half the price of an iPhone. And the iPhone is more a feature phone than a smartphone at this time anyway, so targeted at a different user.

    Ouch! Have you seen the LG Prada screens? Black is always in fashion

    Ha, ha. Your Prada is in need of something to compete with the iPhone. Will people fall for this?



    Hey, remember when you tried to tell me the Prada was better than the iPhone because it had digital mobile TV. Ha, ha, ha! Good times.

    ...when of course it did not and you insisted that it did.

    Actually, I remember that specifically: Surur was referring to the nex-gen Prada which was going to have DMB, not the current iteration which was never projected to have that feature.

    This was in relation to the discussion of the iPhone coming to Europe late this year: Surur was contending that the Prada II would be rolling out around the same time. It was then he invoked the DMB argument as a feature the iPhone would be lacking in comparison, hence behind in offerings.

    Anyone want to confirm/disconfirm that recollection?

    I recall it. Mostly because I remember thinking (and posting) that the gen 2 Prada looked like a one-armed bandit (the arm being the DMB antenna).

    Sure, but then a car makes the person driving it seem more sexy, because it exudes power, style, sophistication. I guess you could feel that way about a cel phone but I don't. My wife finds me sexier when I put down my gadgets.

    Yup...I would agree that power, style and sophistication would create the "sexy" effect. Do you use the term "hot" for gadgets with those characteristics?

    'Cool' because it makes your life easier and more enjoyable, like lemonade on a hpot summer's day. Hot for me refers to things that are really popular, but not necessarily good. Like Paris Hilton, she is hot.

    Ain't language fun?

    I don't think Paris is hot...more like spoiled and slutty.

    How about "slammin'"?
