I agree with the need for now, but I think it will only be "competitive" if it is part of a family of phones. There is a segment that likes the small phone, vertical slider. I certainly like mine. But they have to be able to address the entire market, so they need something to compete with the Droid2 and Droidx styles.
It's what the Pre+ should have been, and if it had been what VZW launched last January, it would have made a huge difference. It can still have a place, but not as the flagship for Palm or for a carrier.
So in answer to the OP, I'm not disappointed in the Pre2. I just wish it was available from VZW. If I was just now looking, I'd definitely buy it. But now that I've realized I can use my Pre for much of what I was doing on a computer... I could really use a bigger screen. It never occured to me that I'd use my phone for web access so much, based on the Treo/Centro/BlackBerry I'd had for years. 3G and a real browser was a major advance.
