I have had my brilliant Pre 2 for a little over a week now and i am delighted with it, its fast, efficient and the battery life is far better than my iPhone 3GS, and yet i feel like HP is just sort of "****ting on the little guy".
I come to this conclusion through seeing the developments of this so called HP/Palm 'Merger'. In my eyes a merger is like, for example, when AOL 'merged' with Time Warner to create AOL Time Warner, however everywhere the strong Palm brand use to be used (App catalog, website, handsets etc) the generalised and weak name of HP is now plastered.
So what am i getting at; well you see the Veer and the Touchpad, both (we are told) outright creations of HP, are getting support and updates out the wazoo, so where does this leave us users of the Pre 2, a perfectly powerful and capable phone that is nearly in line with the future proofed iPhone 4's specs and yet HP shows no willingness to provide support through bug fixes etc or an eta for WebOS 3.
So... finally... my question
Do you think HP see's Palms's Pre 2 as its unwanted marriage child?
