I just got my palm pre 2 a few days ago and have really liked it. This is also my first webos device. I live with 6 other people and they all think that the palm pre 2 is a pretty nice phone.
3 of them use blackberrys( 1 has a blackberry torch+ 2 bolds)
1 uses a nokia E72
1 uses a sony ericson xperia x10 mini pro
and 1 uses an iphone 3g
All of them apart from obviously the iphone user have qwerty physical keyboards. They absolutely like webos but have said they probably wouldn't buy one because its a bit too expensive and the keyboard is a bit cramped. Hardware wise they like the compact feel of the pre 2 especially the soft touch bezel and back. They like the gesture intuitive webos and funnily enough the most asked question was how do i go 'back' from one screen to another. Though the nokia user did say that he trusts the blackberry brand more than palm.
Please note that most of them have not heard or knew about palm before i bought my pre 2. So they've all have had a go and they like it. They didn't ask about the processor speed or the fact that screen is a bit small. What they did say was that it was a very good looking phone, pocketable and that the OS was smooth and fresh.
