Friday Fun Video: TiPb Screaming for Palm Pre to Bring it On!

You're the world champion, but some old-school commentators keep talking like maybe you're yesterday's news. They say you haven't faced any real challengers lately, that you're getting soft. They say that some new device is looking hungry.

But here's the thing: you know you've still got it. You know it and you want to prove it. You want to fight. You want to fight now!

But the challenger just ain't showing up. And worse, they ain't even saying when they will finally show up. Makes you so riled you just want to SCREAM!

That's the emotion TiPb's Rene tapped into to help out editor-in-chief Dieter, and our siblings over at, video up a little demandment for Palm.

Release the release date. The Palm faithful want it to show what it can do, and dagnabit, we want to see what it can do. Bring it on!

Eye of the Jobs, baby!

Wow... these people have problems. Just get an iphone, its already more advanced than the pre and Apple hasnt even released 3.0 yet.

jhunt4231 says:

Is there a reason I can't watch any of your videos from my iPhone? This is the iPhone blog, right??

Jeremy says:

Funny, I saw a very familiar face in that video... Rene? ;)

Jeremy says:

And the video plays fine on my iPhone.

Al says:

How many iPod and iPhone killers have been hyped and then died. The Pre is just going to be another huge disappointment. Sorry Palm fans, your company is straying from it's formula to copy another device.

@jhunt the videos have to be compressed from YouTube for it play on the iPhone it works now

Tunnelrunner says:

I think the Pre will do well (it will at least be profitable enough to keep Palm afloat) but it's not going to be an "iPhone killer"...especially if a new iPhone is announced a week after the Pre's release (LOL).
And I think the smartphone market is big enough to support both devices/audiences, so it doesn't have to kill the iPhone (or vica versa).

Rene Ritchie says:

I played it on my iPhone before I posted it. Worked fine over 3G.

rich says:

that video depicts whats going to happen as they start using the pre, and wished they got the iphone instead

iDutch says:

Lol, bring it on palm, cause Apple already brought it, in fact they brought it, put it on the table, and opened it!!!1

cardfan says:

If only apple wasn't a walled garden.. Pre has more potential because of it.

Rocky Romero says:

@Tunnelrunner Agreed. Both Pre & iphone will co-exist & many others for some.period of time.
Then (in a few years), we'll have a fallout & merging.
The frontrunners have a better chance to survive & thrive.
For now, sticking with iPhone & so are my friends.
