I've dug through other threads, trying to find a good comparison of reasons on getting a Pre3 over a Veer.
I had a panda Veer and a Touchpad, and all the stuff for both. I work at hp, and just finally gave up a few months back (May) as they just didn't give a damn. Tired of messing trying to get a TTS update installed so my feature promised to me was never delivered to integrate with my Touchpad.
I still miss webOS. Sold my last iPhone on XMas eve ;-D
So, I was looking to get a webOS phone again, and can't decide between the Veer or the Pre3. I LOVED my Veer. The ONLY thing that ****ed me off about it was the craptastic camera. The form factor and size were perfect. Why can't manufacturers put good cameras in small phones? I don't want a 5" "phone".
I like the Pre3 (haven't touched one), but it has a front facing cam (for what, just Skype these days?). I did like how there were no "plugs" on the Veer. I really like the magnetic power. I did have the TouchStone for both my Veer and Touchpad, and will be investing in both again should I get either.
Anyone tried taking pics of barcodes with the Veer? I remember them being craptastic enough to drive me nuts trying to snap one. Maybe it's better.
What I'd like to know is which would be the better buy these days, in your all's opinions. I know it's all unsupported, and that doesn't bother me. I don't know if this will be my daily driver. In fact, somehow I doubt it'll be, as I find the droid offerings speed and integration of navigation and such far better. The iPhone camera is just great for me. At this point I have neither, and in fact, nothing. Yeah, no phone right now.
I'd get the device more to learn development on, enjoy having a good interface, and enjoy the phone again, much to what BeOS is to me on the PC. Just a great design. I'll be using it on Prepay like I did before,s o no biggie.
From you experience, which "feels" better? Which "feels" more responsive? Which will give me the best testing platform for messing with anything?
Thanks for any input you all can impart to me.
