dear potential palm pre 2 buyers.
don't read too much into the negativity here.
webOS is a beautiful platform, and it's gonna get exponentially better with version 2.0.
HP, one of the, if not the biggest tech companies in the WORLD, has committed to it and has loads of money and talent working behind it.
many of the disgruntled here are original palm pre owners that had suboptimal hardware, and have endured the majority of the bumps and bruises of the young WebOS platform. Notice that vzw and att users complain less because we have slightly better hardware and build quality...we complain mainly because of things that our wireless carrier has done (delayed updates, crippled gps, lack of nfl app, expensive plans, lack of webOS support by stores and customer service, terrible advertising,etc.)
palm has listened. They are releasing upgraded hardware, comparable to other smartphones, with an upgraded, highly acclaimed OS, in the form of the palm pre 2.
this will be followed by additional smartphoneS (notice the capital and plural S), with more form factors, not to mention other types of devices.
this is an EXCITING time to be a palm fan, and all signs are pointing to things getting only better. By the beginning of 2011, we will have the palm pre 2, the pixi 2, a slate phone (? Palm mansion or roadrunner HD), and a webOS tablet.
to the doubters, critics, t-rolls, and pessimistic "experts", it just might be time for you to jump on to another platform. Not worth raising your blood pressure over.
Now, how will I be able to upgrade early? Have some planning to do...cant wait!
