Thanks, guys. I just can't stand the iPhone any more. Mistake buying it.
And the reason I don't wait until Pre 3 is because I hear that the Pre 3 will not be released on Verizon until quarter 3 (from a Verizon store). I don't want to be stuck with my iPhone for THAT long.
Plus, something about the Qualcomm processor in the Pre 3 i don't trust. HTC devices get HORRIBLE battery life and the one thing they have in common is a Qualcomm chip powering them. This concerned me even further when HP didn't announce what kind of battery life they were getting with ANY of their new devices. If it was good, they would be proud and say it.
From the Videos i have seen on yotube, the Pre 2 seems very capable. I think I will ber very happy with it, especially since you all have answered my questions about homebrew and battery life.
Also, one of the things that I liked a lot about the Pre 3 is the touch-to-share because I WILL be buying a touchpad. Honestly, I think that will come via software update to the Pre 2, since it's basically bluetooth I think. I mean, the veer doesn't have it now and Ruby said that it would receive it over the air in a software update.
