8GB or 4GB micro SD card?

The reviewer said he put 8GB of music on the Tundra, but the specifications printed here and on the Motorola site say the Tundra can only handle 4GB.

Reviewer, are you sure you put 4 GB on the Tundra?

Battery Meter Problems?

Anyone else having issues with the battery meter?

It indicates fully charges regardless of usage, until you plug it into the charger then it will register the correct charge.

I ran my phone all day, made many calls and set many texts. BI stayed at 3 bars and the internal menu meter said 100%. When I got home and plugged it into the charger it dropped to one bar and the internal menu meter said 20% which was what I expected it to be considering the usage for the day.

Ask us about the Pre!

We've tried it. What do you want to know?

We can get more hands-on time as well, so if we don't know, we'll try to find out.

Excellent video!

Good job...you put it threw some pretty good tests, and I'm sure it could of handled even more! I wish verizon would release a cdma version.

Not too sure

I'm not sure how it made out in your review. We had this model selling at Rogers in Canada since last October. So far, I'm getting lots of returns (repairable) and I got a few liquid damaged. Samsung has just came out a phone to compete with VA76r, the Rugby, that's a pretty solid phone!

Isn't that the name of a car?

I think phone names are getting ridiculous. The Tundra...that's definitely a car, isn't it? Pretty soon, phones and cars are going to be named like race horses. "Hey guys, check out my new LG Seabiscuit!"

HECK YA!!

I dont know whats better holding the phone under the water -OR- when he took his glove off he had a band-aid on his finger showing irony of the review and the reviewer!

(we dont have speakers on our CPU's at work so we watched it without sound)

agree with the first review

at&t loves bloatware. when will they realize that people want to be able to customize their phone and they want unrestricted java profiles that let people use the gmail app since at&t is to stupid to load gmail in their mobile email app. at&t needs to get with the 21st century.

what was Palm thinking

Not impressed with the Pre. No real WOW factor like the iphone plus it is on sprint. Nobody is leaving at&t or verizon for this phone.

My bet is this phone will be forgotten as quickly as the Instinct.

Any word about the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (Kickstart)?

Guys,

Verizon had the Blackberry Pearl 8130 on sale for $20 with a 2 year contract "while supplies last" so that gave me the impression that they might be clearing them out. Is the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (i.e. Kickstart) coming out soon? Any stuff about it at CES? Thanks.

8900 3G?

Since when?

The article mentions the obvious benefit of the 3G data speed, but since the first specs were released, the 8900 has been without 3G. Mistake or awesome surprise?

anything GSM-based?

So they make a new device for the slowly dieing cdma networks but no gsm/hsdpa equipment? If they do announce one what chance will it have AWS support? No tmo I bet since they haven't carried a palm since the treo 600 days.

Keyboard and Size

Anyone know if the keyboard is the same size as the Centro? and is there a Touch screen landscape keyboard on it.

The keyboard on the centro is really small to me

Thank you
