I soon will be a member of the Palm group, I've had an iPhone ever since they were released and I'm soon making the switch to the Palm Pre 2. I currently have the iPhone 4 and hope that some of you will assist with making this an easy transition for me.
I purchased the Pre 2 from HP.com, it is being delivered on Monday. I'm nervous, mainly because I've used an iPhone so long and I guess I am spoiled at how great the community is and how thriving the selection of apps and the developers that come along with it. I know that the Palm Catalog has a much smaller market share and thus, many many few apps. But my main reason for wanting to leave the iPhone is because of the messaging notifications. They are horrendous, and Apple has yet to do anything to fix it. I've always loved Palm's notification system on WebOS since it was released.
Secondly, iOS has becoming boring to me. WebOS feels more like a computer. iOS feels limited, however with so many apps you can generally always find something that you need or want.
What is going to make the switch difficult? Not having the retina display, and few apps to choose from, and iTunes syncing.
I would love to hear what others love so much about their Palm device and the Web OS experience.
