Editorial Most of us here like gadgets. Things with displays, LEDs, or stuff that otherwise lights up in the dark and makes cool noises. There is this one gadget I had been waiting for to come out in The Netherlands for quite a while now, but at some point a limit was reached, and today I decided to do a complete 180 and buy a competing product.

Pre sucks.

As a Pre owner I suggest you save your time and money and purchase another phone! It really is a POS.

1) Keyboard in portrait mode sucks! (keys too small) It should have been landscape mode.

2) OS is slow to respond and I constantly hit things twice (being impatient) and end up screwing something up)

3) No quick method to call a frequent number! (having to open the keyboard or go to recent calls is not an answer). hitting a '2' and dial should be the quick dial! not trying to call '2'?????? what brain dead engineer thought that up?

4) GPS is slow to aquire. I'm usually half way to my destination before I can use the navigation!

5) No VPN! What the hell were they thinking!

6) Volume controls really suck! Step size too big, Lowest headphone setting not low enough.

7) People keep saying the OS is it's strong point! Why because it's Linux based? Ha! What a POS! Its slow, clunky and not very intuitive! My kids (9,11&14) even have trouble understanding how it works!

8) The battery life is really poor even with WiFi & BT shut off!

Many more but don't have time.

I have an iPod Touch as well and this is built better, thought-out better and over all a better device for the things that over lap.
