    It's only been out for nearly a day - we've just got to wait and see how well it gets on.

    Bug list for Pre

    1. Light leakage at the bottom of the screen.
    2. Dead pixels.
    3. When entering data into a form field on a web page, they symbol key doesn't work (clicking on a symbol does nothing)
    4. The cut-and-paste Edit menu items don't work. (However, the cut-and-paste shortcuts do work.)

    You'd be hard pressed to find any electronics product, particularly one with an OS, that at least some fraction of the buyers will not insist on returning.

    It doesn't mean anything, and the Pre is defended in the first link you supplied (two were malformed, and I edited them out). Much of what's being complained about could be fixed in a software update. We'll just have to wait and see if it is.

    Frankly, I wish the Pre well. We'll be better off if Apple has some competition.

    hopefully they take some cues from the visual style
    iPhones interface is great, but I think its time for a visual refresh. Nothing major, just shiny it up a little more

    and that notifications system WebOS has
    Its so awesome!
    I want it badly

    It is just amazing how phone manufacturers that have been in the business of making cell phones just cannot compete with the iphone that is the new guy in the market.

    This much I can agree with. The "newness" of it all has worn off and while I still love my iPhone, I wouldn't mind just a few small things to invigorate the style. That said, I am hoping that Apple will at least feel threatened by the Pre so that, as aforementioned, they are prompted to step up their level of development and turn out something even more amazing!

    I've heard a lot of people are returning them because the build quality feels.....well, cheap. I guess people were expecting a glass screen and a high polished polymer plastic like the iPhone 3G, PSP, etc. Like they want that "weight" an expensive phone usually has.

    The phone has a lot of potential though, maybe they can overlook the hardware and focus on the software :)

    It is amazing how the Apple cult always act like the iPhone was launched flawlessly. If I remember correctly, a lot of people have returned their 3G for battery issues, dead pixels, dust under the screen, white screen, etc. I have read about people on the boards who are on their 6th or 7th iPhone because of many issues. I even have a dead pixel and speck of dust under my screen. :eek:

    Even after all the software updates, the iPhone is still far from being flawless after 3 years of development.

    Yes, because zero people returned their iPhones on launch day and all of them were satisfied to a degree where they didn't have to come to a forum to complain. Seems that my memory had faded from true reality. /sarcasm

    Just amusing to read through that forum...

    Honestly, does it really matter at this moment? They put out a quality product and that's what counts.

    Even with the new hardware and software, apple will still have problems with units... It's a fact that this will happen... I'm sure on the new phone people will still have battery issues, dust under the screen, and what not..

    No company is perfect but everyone thinks apple can do no wrong and they don't make mistakes.... Sorry to say but the Iphone is just another overpriced electronic device...
