Peter Shankman’s HARO service is extremely useful, as it allows bloggers to reach literally thousands of users with little effort. My query regarding Palm’s Pre has led to a torrential flood of email hitting my inbox – from now on, user opinions will be posted for your enjoyment frequently.

Our first “user” is Sam Dependahl from Jarvis Communications, who has some pretty interesting ideas:

I’m excited about the Pre. I actually check all of the blogs and search Google News every day for the updates. That being said, I will not be buying a Pre any time soon. For most of 2009 I was set on buying it the day it came out, but the more I thought about it, the less sense it actually made.

I have a Treo Pro which I absolutely love, and it doesn’t make sense to give it up for a new, unproven OS. Even if the Pre is as ground breaking as the reports, it will take a long time (if ever) before it has the apps to compete with the competition.

I think it might also have a bit of an identity crisis. I don’t think it will ever have the cool “it” factor of the iPhone, and will never be taken as seriously as RIM or WM for business users. I love Palm, and I really hope the Pre lives up to the hype. I’ll give it some time to prove itself in the market before I get one.

Keep in mind, I am not a tech expert and I’m not in the phone industry.
