I have a Verizon PrePlus and can upgrade next month. Love the plus and have had it since day 1 on Verizon.
I can get a Pre 2 for $50. Much nicer than the Plus (and looking forward to gorilla glass) and I love the touchstone. I'm fine with the apps I have. My only two issues with the plus - no skype and no international calls.
The Pre3 would have done both. That's no longer and option.
I travel a lot, spent 6 weeks abroad last year, and when I was in Brazil last month my computer bricked and I had no way to contact anyone. In fact, for a few hours I honestly worried about the possibility of being kidnapped. So having a phone or skype that works internationally is important to me OCASSIONALLY.
But on a day-to-day level, both the iphone and all the Droids are too darn big for my jean pockets - or even a small purse. If I wanted a tablet I would have bought one.
Is the pre2 enough of an upgrade that it's worth it? I could always rent an international phone if I had to when needed. Or is there a small phone that's similar in Verizon's line? I can't find one.
