My Palm Pre OCD Has Started

I must have been fooling myself thinking that I may not get a new Palm Pre smartphone right away. Palm has a new gadget about ready to come out and I’ve got that itch that can only be scratched with a new device, so let the Palm Pre OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) begin!

What changed my mind? A few things. I was at a local Sprint store and talked to someone there who had used the Pre and they said that it was “amazing.” This same personal also said “that the browser is just as good as the one on my iPod touch.”

I also received word from an anonymous source that Palm has pushed out an OTA ROM update that brings webOS to version 1.02. The specifics of the updates where not identified.

This all leads up to my decision to sit out in front of my local Sprint store starting at 6am on Saturday morning. The good news is that there is a Dunkin’ Donuts next door (coffee for the Sprint emloyees, a Diet Coke for me).

UPDATE: My wife just tryed to explain to me that there is no clinical “pre OCD.” To which I replied that the object of my current gadget OCD is called, the “Pre.” It’s a good thing that she’s cute. I have changed the title of this post to My Palm Pre OCD.
