Nah I'm actually a Surgeon working in Kalamazoo MI. I just read too much into this stuff
I'm a very satisfied T-Mo customer, and don't like Sprint. Besides, I enjoy the freedom holding an unlocked phone to which I can insert whoever's SIM in, as I do travel a LOT.
I've been waiting for a vertical full qwerty silder since forever. The thing about vertical sliders in they allow for big screen while allowing single hand usage. You don't need both your hands to operate this phone.
I just hope app developers get lined up quickly for the Palm Pre just like they did with iPhone and the Android.
But again, no decisions will be made till I see the G2/3...
