What Would You Do for a Palm Pre?

OHHH BOY. This could get interesting. Remember the craziness that was the What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? contest??

At our sister site PreCentral.net, they're hyped for the upcoming launch of the Palm Pre and are following our lead by today announcing the What Would You Do for a Palm Pre? contest. The prizes are awesome... they're going to give away FIVE Palm Pre prize packs to five lucky (& crazy) winners:

  • A Palm Pre Smartphone on Sprint
  • A $100 Amazon Gift Card to fill your Pre up with music
  • A Touchstone Charging Station & Battery Cover
  • Any case from the PreCentral.net Accessory Store
  • A Set of Motorola S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphones (A $99 value) to rock out with your Pre

You can click the graphic above for all the contest details and to submit your entry. They've even thrown out the challenge to try and top the winning entries in our contest.

And in case you're thinking Why would would a BlackBerry site post about a Palm Pre contest? the answer is simple... if you win you can always sell it and buy yourself a nice new BlackBerry 9630 or Curve 8900 or Bold or Storm!!

I'll tell you what I would not do:

... switch to Sprint

PaliMan88

I would give it to my friend who is on the sprint network
because I would never switch from VZW
its the best coverage at least where I live and work at...
plus my whole family got VZW 60+lines
Or
I can sell it and get me another nice BlackBerry... maybe the Bold.

Good luck sister site...the Palm Pre is nowhere near as relevant as the Storm was leading up to arrival. Don't think ur gonna see anything TOO wild...

fenrirulfr

no thanx......... im a blackberry user

BBBandit

Would not do anything. I would not want one. Sticking with my trusty BB.

Mathrin

Most of the comments over there just say, "I'll wait for it to come out and just buy it."

Pretty funny.

ZacharyFarmer

I would actually get rid of my Blackberry for a Pre.

BByourBB

break a piece of my kit-kat bar. Wait, let me sleep on it first. This is just a maybe...

BBnormous

I would put it up for auction and give the money to a childrens hostpital that treat kids with cancer.

Maybe that would be useful since no one has posted anything good yet.

mzava40

Very simple give it to a Good Friend for her B'Day in May.. She is on the sprint Network and has a old beat up Palm since 2005 She would be beside herself with a new phone.
THAT'S WHAT I WOULD DO IF I WIN... MAKE SOMEONE ELSE HAPPY.. CUZ I LUV MY BB

I would go right back to sleep :) zzzzzzzz

OH Yeah....I have a Storm but I would love me a Pre. From everything I have seen it would beat the Storm hands down.

I was a long time Palm user and got the Storm through work. I am in a Love hate relationship with my Storm. I love it on M-W-F Hate it on T-Th-S and Sunday is a toss up.

I am not a sold out to a brand guy I want a functional device that meets my needs. Blackberry is great at email, but honestly the Palms that I have had in the past were just as good with email and much better with calendar. I cannot even pull up contacts within my company with my Storm

From an overall standpoint palm is a better made device, and can do more out of the box than a BB with $100 worth of apps. Blackberry is no slouch but I think that I started with the wrong device to have the best opinion.

BestBuyMobileBBUser

I would actually open a new sprint account, just to see what the Pre is all about. There has been so much hype surrounding this device that my curiosity has been piqued.
I can't imagine that it would come even close to the super-duper awesomeness that is the BlackBerry Bold though.

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGLLLLYYYYYYY

I really want to get my hands on one of these. If it lives up to be what Palm says, then I may think about switching.

Ash_786

Get my BB Storm and :

- Electrocute it
- Slam it again a brick wall
- Drill a hole through it
- Drive over it with my car
- and drown the s.o.b.

Now ...... Can I have one now ?

racinwarrior

I would downgrade my storm back to .75

rarebreed1134

I would kill an ant...

No but really, people like palm that much???

must have never had a 'berry...lol

chuckh0308

I'm just not sure they could have made it anymore physically unattractive? Nah, I'll wait and see what else is coming. Honestly, I think it's going to be a flop and Palm and Sprint are done by the end of the year. They could have produced the greatest OS ever (though we don't even know that yet), but something that unfriendly to look at on Sprint just spells disaster.

palmberry

Well if I wanted a palm pre I would go out and buy it...but that's just me

If Verizon had it I would give it a spin.

jnn457

sgt50

hahahaxp

Hey hey,

I love Palm Pre and BB both.
What is wrong with me ???

Hey hey hey.
Cheers.

2face-MazE

or is the palm pre just about the ugliest thing ever? EVER? like holy cow, it must be the most unattractive contraption ever for me to lay my eyes on. EVER!!!!

i think i'd rather stare at nude photos of Susan Boyle for crying out loud.

Chuck Q

ugh i agree i think its gross

vandebe

i would violate a blow-up sheep doll with a louisville slugger and upload the video to youtube...

just kidding, thats kinda creepy, but if i win one... you might see such a video...

mahootzki#CB

I would take a big hammer and use it to bang my Curve senseless. I couldn't take it from the minute i got it after my Treo 755p broke down and everyone said Blackberry, Blackberry, Blackberry.... well Blackberry is faaaaar from perfect.
BTW, i will probably do that even if not to win, after i get the Pre

JamieD...

I would beat my AT&T Tilt with a hammer until it is dust. First, I would snap the screen. Then, I would smash up the keyboard, then I would drill a couple holes into the screen. Then I would hammer and hammer until it's nothing. And I would (maybe) bring it to my local AT&T store to try and get a new one. Then, I would sell my Pre for some more Crackberry! Probably a Bold or a 8900 since I'm an AT&T user.

Yandar

Whats the point. Yet another US only contest as per...

dmevis

The Blackberry Operating System is getting more outdated and more unwieldy by the day.

RIM should buy Palm to get this new Operating System, and then port its email and other applications to it.

Jaguarr40

I would give up my BB Curve 8330 which I dearly love to have a shot at a Palm Pre. I think it is a very cool phone and organizer smartphone and would love to win one and this includes paying my early termination fee to have one.

Jbairdjr

What would I do?

Not much really. I think Palm will still be junk, but I would take one for free.

ashantiblack

Now tell me when the Niagara is coming out for Sprint, and you talking sense.. anything else besides that im not hearing..

scurvydlicious

I would accept a check of $1,000,000 from Sprint and/or Palm to get a Pre... Other than paying me to take one, I'm not willing to do anything else to get one.

cmorty72

Usually don't win don't win these things, but might as well give it a shot *shrugs*.
Who knows.... I might just win something. ;)

gmpblack

well I entered the contest mainly cause my daughter is on Sprint, I have an old 8310 and I put that I would cut my Curve in half with my sawz-all to win....lets see if that'll entice them...lol

preheat the oven and play sudoku

being a loyal yet new BB user now I would make a youtube video of me smashing the thing if I win one and kissing my BB :P but keep the stereo head set :)

MikeSuede

I was palm head long before blackberry. And if it wasn't for Verizon I might still be (they're always behind). Now since I'm not going to leave blackberry or the crackberry fiends (of which I am one now), I guess I would have to turn a second phone on.

jbdale

Former Palm user, loved the Treos. The reason I swicthed to BB was because of Palm discontinuing the Treo design. Saw the phone at a show in Denver. Cheaply made, like all other slider keyboards, buttons are to small. I would give it away. Definitely a step backwards for Palm.

mvoss3

Although I'm BB Curve user, I'd be curious about the Palm Pre, it's format is a bit odd. Son has a Centro, it's okay for a teenager. Best of luck to everyone.

surflax155

mariadee

SOUJAH345

Rocii

I'm sure I'll love this phone. I would not watch a movie for an entire year if I could get a Palm Pre. But if I dont get it for free I can get the GSM version unlocked from http://www.puremobile.com/Palm/Palm-Pre-Black-GSM-Phone/ as soon as they release it. LOL

rubyblood
