Voice dialing?

Does the Pre offer speaker independent voice dialing?
To be honest voice control over things like the play list would be very nice but not a must have but voice dialing when using a Bluetooth headset is just to handy.

Palm Pre Plus (Verizon)

So Verizon's version of the Palm Pre will be out soon, and it will have double the flash memory (16GB) and double the RAM of Sprint's version. Do you guys think Sprint will get the new version of the phone too? Was thinking about upgrading my phone to the Pre, and I'd hate to buy it if they will be offering an improved version of it soon.

Just switched to Sprint and bought the Pre! Questions!

I love love love the phone, and I was a die hard Blackberry boy for four years! But, there is a few things I don't like about the Pre and need help correcting it. One thing is the contacts options. I linked my facebook contacts and it puts all 297 friends in my contact list. I only want SOME of them to show up because I don't call but about 60 of them, but it won't let you delete them one at a time, it's either all or nothing. Same with my email. I have about 97 email addresses in my gmail and it pulls all of them into my contact list as well. Like I said, I ONLY want the contacts that I call in my contact list. Is there anyway to fix this? Also, where can I download some good ringers? It only lets me listen to them on, n...

pre VZW

so now that they tweeted that it will actually be available on vzw in early 2010 I gotta make a decision. I've never had a pda on any network. I am on vzw now with a flip phone. I'm test driving the Pre on Sprint now and really like it, and all the 3rd party apps and all. I still think the vzw network has better coverage in my area... and honestly I don't care about the plan price difference. My main concern about waiting on the pre for verizon is whether they will cripple the crap out of it and stop me from getting all those delicious 3rd party apps. anyone with experience on this matter please let me know.

Looking for a workaround for the wireless sync function on a Palm Pre

Any opinions on Chapura WebOS sync software or alternate suggestions on any better 3rd party sync software for WebOS? I don't want any of my "private" data being wirelessly uploaded and stored on an online server such as Google, Yahoo or Palm. So, I'm looking for a viable workaround to cutoff any back up function other than to a designated laptop or desktop of my choice.

It is my understanding that the full 8 GB of internal memory can not be used for storing apps. However, I think there is a way to increase this.

Can anyone provide me with information as to how to increase the amount of memory available for apps?

What are some of the most useful/best apps for the Pre?
