    got the pre about a month ago and still have a few days to return it. am seriously considering the hero having had a G1 and digging that before i was sucked into the iphone web (at&t bleeps...)

    a couple questions that will either seal/break the deal:

    can you multitask on the hero as you can in the pre? ie: have pandora going while you check email and answer a text?

    pre's webOS allows syncing with all three of my accounts: gmail, yahoo and hotmail. notifications for all three show up along with threaded conversations w/ various contacts. can the hero also do this? or is yahoo/hotmail restricted as it they are on the iphone?

    as i said, i had the G1 and am familiar w/ android. these capabilities are why i would stay with pre/webOS. if the hero can also do them, i'd switch.

    thanks in advance

    The Hero multitasks.

    And yes it does do threaded conversations although I'm not sure with so many accounts as I just use Googlemail....

    i have gmail and 2 aol accounts linked to my phone, not a problem. I just left my pre on sunday, and I LOVE IT!

    i use mine for everything, and have yet to find a phone that works as good as my old gen 2 ipod did years ago! this thing ROCKS!

    I was hesitant to leave the physical keyboard of the pre after not having one for the past 1 1/2 years, but WOW! Capacitive is SOOO much easier to type on than resistive! plus the corrective actions the hero makes are AWESOME!

    OK! i have to go stare at my Hero now!

    one more small thing: i had to enable a homebrew app in preware to get the led to light up w/ messaging on the pre since it's not native.


    does the green light flash when there is a message on the hero as it does w/ the G1? and if so, does it notify for SMS/MMS/email, etc?

    it might not sound like much, but it's incredibly helpful

    thanks again

    it constantly flashes, not just for notifications? can this "status" light be disabled and only active for messages?
