I was a launch day supporter of WebOS. The pre- on launch day was like a dream come true, I had just purchased a centro about 8 months before and was ready for WebOS. Anyway I was one of the most hardcore supporters of WebOS, talking my SO into a pixi-, my mom into a pixi+, my brother into a pre+ and eventually into a pre 2. I'm no stranger to the hacking community here, i've done about every hack and meta-doctor you can to the current hardware (minus the TP). I even built a basic linux machine to make the hack fest easier, anyway, I was just about to find a cheap pre 2 and swap com boards with my minus until the evo3d caught my eye.
I had purchased a evo shift when it first came out and was thoroughly unimpressed with it. I figured that with all the hype of android it was going to be a lot faster than it was, turns out it really wasn't a good enough upgrade to the pre- and I returned it inside of a week. Now that dual cores are out and ice cream sandwich is right around the corner its looking like the evo3d has a firm spot in my pocket (until htc makes webos hardware ).
Anyway i'm kinda babbling because i've been up all night looking for cheap TPs, what I'm really trying to figure out is how many WebOS defectors are picking up a cheap TP.
