Very interesting, I like the fact that they were able to improve performance on the 3g model just with software alone. That shows that they are just not bullying new performance with higher physical specs and actually working on the package as a whole. If they can do that on the mobile platform I cant wait to see what Snow Leopard does for the Mac.
i hate the keyboard on the pre and the looks but overall its a good phone. I hate to say it but every comparison ive seen web speed wise the pre has beaten the iPhone 3g s. Not to say it makes me dislike mine at all i still love it but i have yet to see it win.
I have no desire for multitasking as most of the time it seems like I already have it. I leave the net, mail, texting, and others to go get info from some other program and go back right to where I left. I know I'm missing something but I had it with the Ipaq 211 for almost a year and for my uses I haven't missed or noticed it at all.
