I just wanted to tell everyone how awesome HP is to work with. I work at a university where I am one of the head IT guys for one of the colleges on campus. We were notified this morning that an HP rep was on campus today and that we should stop by and talk to him if we have any questions about HP products. I thought that it would be interesting to go by and ask if he had any information about the Touchpad, Veer, and Pre 3. He didn't share anything with me that we don't already know here.
I then expressed my frustration about my Pre Plus not even being a year old yet, but it has already been declared end-of-life and isn't getting updates anymore. I asked him if there was any path for me to get webOS 2.0 without paying full retail for a Pre 2 while I am in the middle of my 2 year contract on Verizon.
He got on with the Palm division and asked what they could do for me... they offered to send me a Pre 2, no questions asked!
We talked for about 30 minutes about how HP is very excited about webOS and that they want to keep the loyal Palm customers happy. They sure bought a loyal Palm customer in me!
