    From what I heard, that extra ten bucks isn't for access to Sprint's 4g but is basically a fee to uncap the 5 gigabyte limit on the "unlimited" plans. It doesn't really have anything to do with 4g access as far as I can tell.

    As for me though, I'm really not that interested in the Evo myself, if the Samsung Galaxy S comes to Sprint I may go with that if Palm or Sprint don't announce anything by late July. The Galaxy has the best touchcreen tech along with the best display with super amoled and a hummingbird processor that runs circles around snapdragon (cpu and gpu). My Pre is getting pretty beat up and I could use a new phone.

    Even though I've never had a problem with the USB port? The ONLY hardware problem I've had is the headphone jack. The Pre is a damn beast. I've dropped it more times than I can count. Usually once a day at minimum. Its got scratches scrapes you name it. BUT it still works near exactly like normal. No oreo no squeaking, all the buttons working, no cracked screen, its just a beast.

    I rarely carry phones in my pocket. I typically hold them in my hand while walking or I set them down whether at work or somewhere else. But I could easily see myself being paranoid about damaging it from walking with it in pants pockets. But perhaps in jacket pockets, whether it be a suit or a casual jacket, it should be a non-factor.

    at the very least tell us WHY you prefer the webOS browser
    The Android browser is typically still the same, with the exception of Flash. Flash lite anyway, as pointed out by another forum member. (Thank you Mikah) Lets use good ol' Facebook as an example. Basically, with the exception of Flash, webOS can load the entire site. I'm not aware of any other OS on the market that has that capability as of now. Try launching and using Facebook chat in any other browser... Now granted there are plenty of app's available for specific need's such as FB chat, but I like the fact that webOS can do that. As far as load times I can only come to one conclusion: If you're using an app, an overclocked Pre gives the Evo a run for it's money. When it comes to the browser, the Evo excels (due in part to 4g and hardware.) The Evo seemed to load precentral.net consistently 3-5 seconds faster than even an overclocked Pre. Your results may differ.

    Perhaps you're reading more than you need to in my post on that topic. If you read it again, maybe you'll see I stated that it adds a nice touch and is refreshing to see something of that sort available on a new device. I didn't say a single thing about how great the functionality of Flash (Lite) was. The only thing I definitively stated was that I still prefer the webOS browser.

    Cant wait till Evo though!
    Thank you for the backing. Plenty of other Pre users also believed it was my wrong doing or lack of knowledge, but after properly backing up and resetting my device, I had lost 112 contacts when re-signing in.(Or I should say 112 of my Palm Profile contacts did not return.) Each different tier of support basically said that it was an extremely rare occurrence. Oh well. I received a new Touchstone for my troubles. Luckily for me, I had more than one option to reattaining the lost contacts.

    I think cmike04 and myself share a mutual agreement that at the end of the day it's still an Android OS and not our cup of tea. And a thanks to those who walked away with something from my post.

    I salute you for your uniqueness and one-of-a-kind experience.

Its almost one year since the Pre release, its about time for a new phone.
    i love my pre too. but the main reason for jumping ship here.............


    LACK OF APPLICATIONS. android and iphone both trump the pre. as awesome as webos is, albeit laggy, the app market is a shame!

    Keep the Pre....wait for a better WebOS phone to come soon !
    Android is feature loaded,cool, fast, BIG, Etc....but I have had a Pre since June 2009, and its a very reliable Phone...not too small, not to BIG....With that 800 Mhz Kernal, its plenty FAST. I dont see this HTC 4g as a superior phone....just different stuff, and HTC has never made SOLID durable phones either. ( Ive had 3, all were poorly constructed) Android is just different, not better.
    Go Palm !!

    I wonder if palm pre can load faster shazam oh wait it can't not able to yet, or how about use hdmi to my tv, oops not, or how about visual voicemail oops again it can't.

    but it can multitask and use synergy really well that's good yay!!

    food for thought again

    Sprint Nav on the Evo is pointless when you have Google Navigation which puts Sprint Nav to shame. Google it .. (or better yet, Youtube it).

    Food for thought: Telenav for the Pre is a watered down version of Telenav compared to the Android, iPhone and WM versions. Less to load - faster to load.

    Food for thought: Omega 3 Fatty Acids

    Also, I can only imagine how fast the Nav system would work in an actual 4G area on the EVO. However, I'll still be sticking with my WebOS device for some time. haha

    Sprint Nav on Android works in landscape and has more features.

    There is not an HTC phone in recent memory with any build issue. (unless you want to say the Nexus one capacitive buttons were off.

    Lol, even Palm's UI director is jumping ship to Google/Android. Guys, it's over. Wake up!

    HP is denouncing and rumor of WebOS in their upcoming HP Slate tablet. You know what that means? Even less interest to invest in WebOS at the moment. People are leaving, HP is putting it on the backburner for now. $2B for Palm is really a small price for the patents they have. HP will use it as they see needed.

    I wouldn't agree with that at all. No one knows what HP will do until the deal is finished. Should be interesting to see how that turns out.
