    I'm gonna have to pass on the EVO, the android market is growing everyday and has some really awesome apps but I can't give up my webOS. I fell in love with it last jan when I first saw it. Plus there is no way I want to carry around a phone that's that big. I'll gladly keep my pre and save my upgrade for the new palm/hp when it comes out.

    I'm pretty sure sprint doesn't but I know RadioShack has a buy back program & they're suppose to get the EVO's in too. Prices are always cheaper too.

    Yes, they have a recycling which gives you very little. I recommend the shack online pre's are going for $71 to 97 craiglist or ebay.

    Eh, I waited how long with my 755p until the Pre came out? I like WebOS, and I don't have a huge reason to move onto the Evo. I do appreciate having something shiny, new, and up there on the hardware specs, but right now, I'm mostly happy with how my Sprint Pre's doing, and I don't really feel like I want to go test out Android. I'll just play with my friends' Android phones...

    Plus, I'm still pretty attached to having a physical keyboard. And I very much like having the slider to put the keyboard away when I want to.

    I'd sure like to hear what Palm's got in the pipeline and when, tho...

    :-)

    It's like getting a new toy or about to get one. Most palm pre/plus users are gearing up to jump ship for the infamous htc evo 4g. When palm/hp put webos on a new device,most likely the jumpers will be back. Palm pre/plus phones are not easily forgotten... My question is.. WHAT HAPPENS IF THE EVO IS NOT WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS??? Answer- It's obvious isn't it.

    I love the Pre and will hold out to see what Palm has in store. Im not eligible for an upgrade till November so if they do release something new hopefully the bugs will be worked out (he he). Im getting older so a bigger screen would be nice but not as big as the EVO's. A card slot would be cool too.

    Umm... I think we would expect a good product, considering both HTC and Google have been in the game for a while.

    It would be different if this was google's and htc's first phone.


    I'm on the fence still. I'm waiting it out on Palm and HP to see if they're focusing more on tablets for a while... Cause I feel like that's what they're doing.

    I'm not really impressed with the Evo. The Snapdragon CPU isn't the holy grail people think it is. The GPU that CPU powers is weak and I do mean weak. The iPhone 3GS has a better performing GPU than it. That is very disappointing to me concerning future development.

I already went threw 5 pre. I'm still waiting for my replacement as we speak should be here tomorrow. I love webos, but HATE! the hardware. I listen to music and podcast a lot and what's keep breaking in my pre is the headphone jack it's the worst.
    Same with me! I'm on my 3rd since July! Sprint = No Pre Plus = Fail! Try Android, give Pre to wifey = Win Win for me!

    I just got my 3rd Pre from Sprint about a month ago. This time it was new out of the box and not a refurb. The first one had the touchscreen stop working. The second Oreo'd badly. The current one fell on my carpet from my belt pouch two days ago and started splitting apart. At this point, this third Pre isn't going to last long. On top of that I have been annoyed by the speed of taps on the screen. I have accidentally dialed wrong numbers many times because of the delays (I didn't want to run the 800Mhz hack). The 1 year warranty is almost up in June and don't want to deal with hardware issues after.

    Because I figured the hardware wouldn't have lasted, I decided to drop a down payment on an Evo. My wife has a Moto Droid and loves it. Many more apps are available I might play with in the Android Marketplace.

    I love the Palm WebOS software. I am particularly bummed that HP ended up having to buy Palm. I hoped to see other devices from Palm in a different form factor than a slider by this time. Since that didn't happen, I am jumping ship.

    That said, if HP can release a Slate running WebOS that can compete I might return for that. Next June I may also look back to Palm for a new device. It depends on how well the EVO hold up. I can't imagine it will have worse hardware issues than my Pre.

    Then again, as a Zune user, I might be inclined to give whatever Windows Phone 7 device a look that is available on Sprint.

    I AM going to keep my Pre in a drawer. If anything goes wrong with the Evo, I can always reactivate.

    Android just has a lot more steam behind it at this point. Not to mention having a more robust programming environment. Palm is too late with their PDK, it should have been there on launch. There's so much more they could have done but only having the Mojo SDK available really killed it. I was surprised they restricted developers so much. Ah well, moving on. Been pretty pleased with Android so far development wise.

    I'll take a look at the Evo and if I like it, I'll definitely switch. I like the Pre, it has been my first 'smartphone' even though it took forever to do stuff that my freebie phones did years ago. I'm just really getting frustrated with the hardware which is killing the software. Even OC'd to 800mhz, the phone is so damn sluggish. I've missed calls many times because the phone app wouldn't launch in time. It's my second Pre as well.

    I like WebOS and look forward to seeing what HP does with it, especially in the larger form factor. Personally, I don't really see it as an OS, they should just call it what it really is, a slick GUI and wrap it around windows 7 for a tablet device. I would buy that in a heartbeat. A perfect touchscreen interface for a fully featured windows OS.

    LOL @ wanting the phone for the 4G which happens to be in very small markets and from what I hear it is not a huge improvement over 3G. And by the time they roll out the 4G to more areas (most likely your unless you live in the very limited market) there will be a new better phone out.
