    Thank you.

    I think they (Palm – HP) will release webOS 2.0 before Christmas to try to keep interest on the existing phone line and then release the next generation Smartphones at CES2011 in January. They could leak enough info on new devices before Christmas to hold people over the holidays so the excitement will peek at CES.

    Palm is virtually unknown in the rest of the world. So there is no use what so ever to rush a new device out. It's better to pick the right moment, announce something big to get noticed, and make it available worldwide a few weeks after

    Getting this ready worldwide does take time, think for example about the app catalog and the support for paid apps everywhere.
    I'm with you. Althought I would love to see something new before christmas, I think CES is the better place to introduce new hardware. Another Pixi-esque launch doesn't benefit to anyone, except that people that wants to buy a Palm phone before christmas.

    A huge launch at CES, with different form factors, and different price tags, will allow HP to say: Hey, we are here to stay.

    This must be why J Rube seemed fustrated since he may have wanted to push for releases this year.

    I would guess that may have been the plan, then things change to next year, maybe back to this year, now its a lock for next year.

    Fine with me. Take the time to integrate everything and GET IT ALL RIGHT!!

    My Sprint Pre is terrific with the homebrew help. Were it not for that community, I may be a little less patient. But, with their help, I am perfectly happy with my phone.

    I am not a gamer, so I can't speak to that issue. I'd rather HP release a truly exciting and well built device than just another device because it is "about time".

    Agreed wholeheartedly. It's much more important that they do it right than it is for them to do it now. A huge showing at CES with a serious marketing campaign and devices available shortly thereafter will make a very big splash.

    HOW early? I will be willing to wait another couple months for a new webOS phone. I'm eligible for upgrade in november but I REALLY want a webOS phone. I love it so much I can stand to wait just a bit longer to have it. I just hope all the waiting will be worth it.

    i aint goin nowheres ! ! ! simple ill wait
  10. #31  
    what is early?
  11. #32  
    yup so the wait is on, and to me with them deciding to wait until next year, im assuming we will be getting a device with superior specs, and a OS that has no hiccups. No excuses this time at all.

    the wrath of sprint pre owners will be starting soon.

    "i'm jumping ship to android," they will all scream and yell.

    meanwhile, most vzw and att users, and others worldwide, will continue to enjoy our pre plus devices, eagerly awaiting when we are due for an upgrade and watching from the sidelines, hoping hp/palm will pull all the right strings this time around. we will be hoping that as a result, the app catalog and media attention to our platform grows.
    Are you implying that somehow the Pre Plus - a phone that is basically identical except for storage and the lack of a button - is so much better that Verizon and AT&T users can just laugh at how awful the Pre is? I'll just say that I hope you're not that misguided.

    I honestly feel that hp palm will be releasing a slew of new devices next year, in many form factors, and that 2011 will be a great year...it will all start at CES 2011. Those that stick around can enjoy webOS 2.0.
    HP-Palm will release maybe 2 or 3 devices next year, TOPS. I know that for a fact. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    If despite this, sprint users insist on running to android, though it will hurt hp palm in the short term, I think it will hurt those customers that leave more. android is a powerful platform, nice form factors and apps and all, but the fragmentation, brief life of each device, loss of privacy to google, and just overall user interface will drive each of you nuts...i am pretty sure, most will come back.
    I was able to trial an EVO and an Epic over the last few days, and if you think that webOS is so much better that everyone will regret their purchases, you're mistaken. I LOVE webOS, but Android isn't so much worse that I can't handle it. There are a few major differences:

    1) Gestures - Everything on my Pre is a gesture, and while that's kind of sleek, it's not necessary. Plus, since my Pre frequently won't register my "swipe to delete" gestures, I actually prefer the "hold and press" function in Android because it works 100% of the time.

    2) Multitasking - I honestly think that saying that Android multitasks is a bit off. It doesn't TRULY multitask, it just saves your spot in an app so that if you switch back to it, you won't lose much. However, it doesn't truly leave the app running. For example, if you open Angry Birds and then switch to your e-mail, you have to completely start Angry Birds up again when you go back simply because it isn't capable of opening from scratch back to your previous spot, and Android is actually closing the app, not leaving it running like the Pre does. I believe this causes the god-awful battery life issues that the Pre has. My Pre's battery lasts me maybe 6 hours of standby. STANDBY.

    3) Homebrew - Sure, I missed all the great customizations people have built into the Pre, but Android's huge app store and all the great widgets help to close that gap. Plus, ROMs are fantastic, and while they're harder to switch back and forth from than a homebrew patch, they provide that kind of functionality where the customizations are built into the OS itself.

    I'll miss webOS a little, but I WON'T miss my Pre.
