    I have been with webos from the beginning. When the original pre came out I spent $500 off contract to get one. I have brought every webos phone besides the pre 2 and 3! but now I need your opinion because I have 2 hp touchpads and 2 veers so i was thinking about selling a veer and a touchpad the only issue is my dad took one of my touchpads so I'm down to one and i was considering getting Microsoft surface and wait until open webos gets back into the mobile market

    Go without using the Touchpad for a month and then decide if you miss it...

    same here, each time i grab a touchpad the battery is empty, but my 2 year old Ipad keeps battery at least 5 times longer

    webos is a great OS, but it lags on the hardware it runs on, maybe indeed one year further we will have better choices and run it on a samsung or similar thing

    Get a Touchstone charger for the TP - I had an ipad for a while instead, but I missed the Touchstone and the pairing with my phone, so went back.

    i just got a refurbished TouchPad Touchstone off ebay US (looked like unused,even had original foil on it) and i'm quite impressed. It even charges through original TouchPad sleve.

    btw. HP/Palm made all right by designing the charger for TouchPad exactly the same diameter as original Pre charger so my twist-off adapter for EU fits on those US charger models

    oddly enough, it is good for use as a phone... strong speakerphone, etc.

    I love the keyboard and the finger swipes & the cards & all that ...but I hate the lack of descent predictie text, no ip camera view app, the half dead app offerings, the hardware that ages, & such...

    I will sorely miss this fone when it goes ...

    I have about 3-4 Zire 71 and several Lifedrives on my desk... my wife still uses her Lifedrive and TX...

    *sigh* I do miss using them myself, and miss some of the apps/games, but I just can't justify carrying my old Lifedrive and Zire when my Pre3 does everything and more (aside those games that I miss), or my Touchpad for it's larger screen when needed.
    Palm M105 > M130 > Zire 71 > Zire 72 >TX > Lifedrive > Pre > Pre2 >Touchpad > Pre3(8GB) > Pre3 (16GB)
    I see a pattern...

    Sorry to kind of hijack the thread, but finding others here who love the Veer as much as I do, I have question. Now, 8 months after these posts are your devices still slowing dying (apps and links not working)

    In particular, none of my email syncs work any more, even with the online suggested work around to manually set up the connections. Does anyone will have working yahoo and gmail on their Veer? if so, how?

    Since you have one post, you may not have found the threads working on Google sync issues.

    My gmail is still working but we are all having problems with calendar sync at the moment.
    Search the recent threads, follow the steps for the Google sync patch. Not sure about Yahoo.
