@Cobrakon: Thanks, I'll take a look, but technically, it would be 3 clicks, not 2. ;-) Swipe up to open launcher, press contact short-cut, press phone number entry. That's assuming it brings up the correct launcher page in the first place. :-)
@barry: Don't want to mislead you, Barry, i am NOT switching from Android to Pre, I was sent a Pre 2 by HP (and Rogers Wireless) to write a review, and because I am considering it as a device for my wife (she wants a keyboard, doesn't like Blackberry, and Rogers doesn't have much selection in Android devices with keyboards).
I am not going to get into an iPhone-style "Android vs Pre" argument, because hey never convince anyone. What I will say it, the Pre 2 is a beautiful device! The hardware is awesome. The WebOS UI is also incredible. Very slick! I love it.
My problem is the lack of apps compared to Android, and if it changes, then so might I.
Now, I don't want this thread to devolve into a comparison of Android vs Pre, just wanted to clarify, however you can see this thread where we are discussing Android vs Pre as far as the availability of FREE apps.
