    This is NOT how long will you wait for a new Palm phone. Just for an announcement before jumping ship either mentally or literally.

    well as far as mentally jumping ship, I'd say by the time we get 1.5 or whatever that fall update will be called, we better have a hardware announcement, hopefully no later than christmas for the actual hardware. I will be mad at hpalm if they don't meet my expectations, but I won't switch to anything but a webOS phone.

    How many threads to we need on this subject?
  4. #4  
    As long as it takes. I made the jump from WinMo before WebOS and based on everything i've exp and heard, nothing is equal to the UI.

    From a totally monetary stand point....I signed a 2 year contract last June. Why would I waist my money and switch to anything else before that's up?

    Further more....webOS is even better now then it was when I bought the phone a year ago, the app cat has some truly good apps, HP (the worlds biggest IT juggernaut) just bought Palm, HOMEBREW amazingness and webOS is subjectively the best mobile OS ever.

    Jump ship.....do I look crazy?!

    I'll jump when "someone" offers something better than what I have.

    But I don't see any other than HP doing so as there are no other OS out there that remotely tempts me.

    Hardware is not the most important factor in my view - just as looks of a partner normally don't set the stronghold of a relationship.

    I think where many go wrong is; 'Loyalty'
    Who cares to wait for anyone? I don't.
    I have what I have because what I have does what I need.

    If you want something for purely want, you're going to bounce around from device to device in frustration or joy - depending what you get.

    If you think there's something better, go get it. No need for apologies and 'goodbye palm' letters.

    Disclaimer:
    This wasn't directed at the OP, but rather those who obviously must feel that way by some of the passion expressed over a pda/phone.

    In my opinion I think it's pretty unrealistic to expect anything announced in 1 week..or 2 weeks..

    I agree. I see nothing on the market that I would trade my pre for.

    I agree with most of you. There is no other phone I really want, which is shocking, I used to switch phones the minute my upgrade came up. I could stick with this phone for a very long time.

    what a silly poll. without a choice like "until my contract is up: or "2 years" the forever has to take on a lot of meanings.

    And why is everyone so impatient?

    Ditto. My contract does not end until June of 2011...so I won't even consider jumping until next June approaches. At that point, however, an Android-based handset may be compelling. We'll see.

    I agree. I feel webOS, homebrew, and community is what fits me best.
    where the passion comes in is when people express their opinions on why they feel their choice is best...their agenda's for / against corporations etc.
    the debates happen over the "better" argument.
    I would drop webOS if the next release fails. If the form factor options suck...etc.
    for now... I am very satisfied with pre performance and form factor.
