Oh wait...
    For real. I'm loving my Evo so far.

    I'll return to WebOS once Palm has announced their next handset....as long as the hardware is great.

    I haven't been able to play with the operating system or other features. I may be traveling alot soon and the larger screen appeals to me. I am still about 3 months from my 12 month ability to switch out of Pre, will be interested in next Pre. I like the Pre form, but if I am traveling smaller screen is a problem for me.

    I need a backpack for EVO (just kidding), but its very large and the battery must be 2x as big as Pre. It may need a 3x battery to drive that huge screen.
    Evo battery is 1500mAh and the stock Pre is 1100mAh. So far it seems that the Evo has better battery life, but I haven't done any real testing and I have been playing with it a bit.

    Also, the Evo fits surprisingly well in jean/short pockets (at least for guys).

    The screen is awesome, looking at websites and email is much much more enjoyable. Then screen is almost the entire size of the Pre itself.

    i get my new evo tomorrow in the mail, can't wait. Although i've seen some of the so called HD videos it takes and i'm not sold on the 720p output. I think my pre takes better video.

    Calm down everyone, i still have my pre as a person phone and an evo as my work phone. ;-)

    I'll give a dollar to anyone that can create an evo thread that doesn't get merged into this one after about six or seven posts even if the topic isn't 'evo vs pre'.

    You are certainly persistent...

    Is the EVO plagued by the same GPS problems that ruined the Pre? I am switching in July because the GPS function of the Pre is just awful. I can't be resetting the phone and typing in special GPS codes into the phone app just to get a GPS signal that is accurate to 50m.

    The GPS on the Evo is great, the best of any smartphone I have used yet. Upon opening the Google Maps app, it locks onto my location within 10 meters in less than 2 seconds (I'm in the Los Angeles area, YMMV). My Pre took a few seconds to lock on, and my Hero was worse, taking up to 15 seconds to lock on within a 100m radius.

    let me ask you a question, how's the multitasking on the EVO working out? i'm just curious , i've never used an android device so i'm not sure how to multitask lol.

    Multitasking is pretty good on EVO. Not as good as WEB OS but its good.

    I get the sense (pun intended) that what people are calling is really just "app switching". As in, how easy is it to get from the browser- to email- to text- to facebook- back to browser...

    That's just playing "software carousel" - which was actually a product back in the days of MS-DOS...

    What I want to hear about is whether Android can have multiple browsers open (or tabbed browsing) so I can load more than one page and switch between them. That's multitasking.

    On my Pre+, I can scroll through a list of items from a Google search, and gesture+tap to open the ones that are interesting. Then I can move to each instance and drill down without having to back all the way out to Google in order to drill down on the next result that was interesting.

    Same idea as "open in a new window" in a browser on my PC...

    So, can anyone tell me if Android can do tabbed browsing and/or have multiple instances of the browser open at once? To me, that would be a more useful example of multi-tasking that moves beyond just switching between apps without having to wait for them to restart each time...

    Ps, everyone should get the patch that turns off the webOS default to reload a web page every time the browser is brought from cardview in to full screen. What was Palm thinking when they decided to have it auto-refresh and slow things down??? Fortunately, there is a patch for that.

    could everyone just forget about patches when using comparisons?

    if android truly is "software carousel" and "true" (pre) multitasking is memory leaks, TMCs, browser reloads, then sign me up...where's that carousel?

    Yes, it can.

    It's had that ability for sometime. Like iPhone, Android only opens ONE instance of the browser, but lets you open as many sites as you want within it using a "cards" interface (And iPhone had it before WebOS was ever announced, so don't bother with accusations of mimicry). You can open far more Web pages than you can in WebOS, and they reload and checkerboard far less.

    Ps, everyone should get the patch that turns off the webOS default to reload a web page every time the browser is brought from cardview in to full screen. What was Palm thinking when they decided to have it auto-refresh and slow things down??? Fortunately, there is a patch for that.
    Unfortunately, it's a solution that requires homebrew, which means most WebOS users will never see or use it.

    Lol, I should've explained a little better. You can open multiple browser pages. You obviously can't swipe through them as simply as you can on WebOS, but you can go through them coverflow style.

    When in the browser, tap menu, windows. That takes you into the card-like interface where you can add a browser page and scroll through you various open windows.
