    i thought saw somewhere (but can't find it now) late nov09?

    but.. there are a bunch of phones coming out around the same time and i think i'm getting confused


    so i was just going to put it out there - what have you heard for the Q's release date?

    yeah.. i heard one estimate that put it near the end of nov (i *thought* i remembered that)



    reason i'm asking.. it would be cool to get the hero and then, if the Q is better, turn the hero in for the Q

    (you get 30-days to return a phone)

    thx

    yeah - that was the date i saw



    i wish i was so certain - but the HW kybd is big for me

    and, the specs are still an unknown - i see the G1 owners sweating whether they have the memory to support an upgrade -- i don't want to be there (well, i'll be there SOMEday no matter what - i just want that day as far away as possible


    i gotta balance that against the fact that i really need a new phone

    trust me - it will be welcome!



    palm is a good OS, don't get me wrong - but its definitely "90's" - i'm happy to be making the jump to the 21st century

    lol

    I went from Treo to Blackberry. I was happy with BB until I purchased the Tour. I've pre-ordered my Hero, pick-up Friday and I'm not at all concerned with the lack of physical keyboard. I think within a week I'll be an old pro.

    I never did fall for the Pre Hype. My problem with Palm is once they move on to a new product they neglect their older products. At least with RIM they still support their older products with buggy updates.

    Chris you might know the answer to this. Can we Mac users root the Hero?

    As far as rooting i am not sure.

    I've played with the Pre while I was waiting on my 2nd, no 3rd Tour to be replaced. Felt like a child's toy to me. I need something more substantial in my hand.

    i couldnt take the small keyboard i think if it was wider i would have liked it better but all the kinks need to be worked out first.

    I cant say I ever wanted to even hold the Pre. The size of it alone turns me off, but the keyboard was the worst thing ever. Way to small for the fingers of a child, let alone grown adults.

    Does it still count as a win if they changed the name?

    This got me to the point where I can stop thinking, I've been really happy with Sprint over the last 8 years and I was ready to go T-Mobile for the Cliq. All I really want is a halfway decent phone with a physical keyboard. 800mhz doesn't hurt my feelings either.

    hero with the sense UI... looking GOOOOD

    Q with qwerty/800MHz/amoled screen/5.5hrs talk-time (but w/ "plain vanilla" google UI - and who knows what kind of long-term support samsung will provide??)




    dammit! i've already put $50 down at BB and i've got an appt for 10:00 friday (RZ early release)

    know what would help?? i want to know what the odds are of "eventually" getting sense on the Q
