Palm Pre Online Data Privacy should have been more clearer

The Palm Pre Online Data Privacy has come into question as some users were quite surprised to find out that their Palm pre smartphone collects info on their mobile phone habits and location states an article on eweek.

Palm state this privacy information usage is clearly stated in the Palm Pre Privacy Policy, and furthermore there is a facility whereby users can opt out of the data sharing function.

Joey Hess, an applications developer discovered the information collection practices when he took a closer look at the Palm Pre webOS and found it was sending GPS coordinates back to Palm along with other info. This then brings into question…should Palm make the Palm Pre Online Data Privacy Policy clearer?
