Can all looking at this afford a Pre?

A recent Palm forum I looked at on the web had varied answers and brought to mind what might be Palm's strategy to release the Palm Pre on or shortly after May 17th which is my wedding anniversary (hint, hint) Next page for some reactions to that question

As you read some of the Palm forums answers you will find not everyone is going to shell out what might be $300-$400 (Who Knows) - TAX refunds might be Palms strategy

I know we don't know the price of the Pre yet, but to be honest we can pretty much guess the ballpark of where it's gonna be...
I was wondering if there is anyone here (other than me) who won't be able to afford a Pre when it is released?
Luckily I'm out of the UK (where I live) until October, so there won't be any point in getting one until then anyway, but I'm already a massive Pre fan boy. Anyone else?

Tax season is almost over, I wouldn't be surprised if Palm expects people to plunk down some of their tax return to buy the Pre. Personally I will.

We are buying two this very same way

I have been putting some money away since Jan. and I am lucky with the kind of work I do that I can work an extra "shift" and more than make up for affording the Pre... It just that I am saving up for a 50" LCD as well

Haha - got your sights set on the good things in life then! My main problem is that I'm going on a gap year starting the end of June, which will be a sorta massive drain on my finances...

I can't afford one now. Just got laid off. I guess I need to win one of the giveaways. LOL

i can afford one if its not more then 400 dollars

Tax season is almost over, I wouldn't be surprised if Palm expects people to plunk down some of their tax return to buy the Pre. Personally I will.

Keep in mind these were answers from a Treo Forum, not the general cell crowd !!

Last fall, the Woodbine, Md., mother of three figured out a great way to get some: online giveaways. She has entered about 40 so far. She has won T-shirts, cleaning products, a small portable vacuum, olive oil, beef jerky and -- best of all -- a Nintendo DS on Web sites such as, and

"The lure of free stuff is quite appealing," she said. "I never considered myself a winner. I don't think I ever won bingo. My name was never drawn from a hat. However, I've been extraordinarily successful at the giveaways."

The recession has emboldened a certain kind of consumer: The mooch. With dwindling retirement savings, a higher cost of living and wobbly job market, they don't just want discounts on items they used to pay full price for without a second thought. They want freebi…


A RECENT NOR EASTER HIT THE NEW ENGLAND COAST AND AS THOUGHT THIS WRECK SURFACED AGAIN FROM ITS BURIED DEMISE--The skeleton only appears periodically - the last time was in 2013 - always after a significant coastal storm, and always attracting attention. Archaeological work conducted in 1980 indicated the wreck is a sloop of about Revolutionary War age. It is likely a “pinky,” a type of vessel with a high, narrow stern and square rigging easily maneuverable along the coast of Maine. Pinkies were popular as fishing and cargo vessels. The first sighting of the skeleton was in 1958, and then it has surfaced periodically right up to the present day - and usually after a good spring nor’easter. Word spread quickly about this sighting via social media, and people came over the weekend and on Monday as well. First, they had to navigate the seaweed- and rock-strewn streets of York Beach. They were also precluded from parking cars in most of the Ellis Park lot, which was buried under a layer …


I've always felt a special fascination for mosaics. From Roman tile compositions to current digital collages, I think they're an awesome artistic expression.
That's why I was so happy when I found Andreamosaic.
This tool enables you to create amazing mosaics from your digital pictures in a very easy way.
It requires having a large collection of photos to use as tiles, that's true. Fortunately the installation file already includes a pack of 500 sample photos that produce excellent results.
The program's interface is quite dull; in fact it's simply a gray window with too much text on it. But the mechanics are easy to understand so you'll be creating your own mosaics in no time!
Plus, the program includes a 20-page manual that explains everything thoroughly. Just remember that the more tiles you use, the longer it will take to generate the mosaic and the larger the final file will be.
