Keyboard is embarrassing? I looked at BB and Droids today at Verizon store. I LIKE my Pre keyboard and formfactor, compared to those. It is slim and fits in my pockets easily. I'd just like a little bigger/higher-res screen like my wife's Samsung (3.5" at most, if that, but is slightly bigger and a lot nicer to look at) and more storage space for music and medical texts.

I use my phone to talk to people on to get things done, not to make googly eyes. Yeah, it would be nice on occasion for the relatives out on the west coast, but not that big a deal. I think you'd have to have a really big screen (4" or Pad) to be able to have pic-in-pic to know what you were pointing the camera at anyway. So a small form-factor phone that I actually want to carry in my pocket wouldn't work well anyway for video calls.
But as a take-everywhere tool that works equally well at the bedside in the hospital or in my pants pocket while I play soccer with my kids, my Sprint Pre is excellent, and a Pre 2 (HD preferably!) will be even better. Now Sprint coverage - that is the reason I was at Verizon today asking about Pre 2's! (They had no idea, but were big Pre+ fans. Still the only phone with free Mobile HotSpot, and still ahead of the pack in OS, just not gadgetry).
