Well... Now I *would* like to see more of an OpenSync style package
available in the repos that also had the ability to do a network based
sync (taking advantage of that built-in WiFi). I'd also would like to
see that integrated well with all of the available calendars and other
apps available on F11.

But on this point I must agree: The Pre absolutely does rock!!! Based on
having used mine for just a few days now, I can confidently say that
Apple and the iPhone have some serious, formidable competition on their
hands - including the new iPhone 3Gs.

Hopefully we'll see more packages and integration tools show up for the
Pre soon.
