I guess I got passed that initial blue funk (& gee, thanks for making that so wonderfully possible Leo (& HP co) [insert unsuitable rant and foul language here]); Decided to squeeze what I can out of WebOS, while I can?
Cracked it open, activated, & spent last night setting up. Honestly, it is amazing how one can easily go from activation to fully tweaked unit so fast. Three initial thoughts..
1) As people said, hardware does feel more solid than a plus.. nothing over the top or worth crooning about, I think, but just subtly nicer, more responsive and quicker, esp with the keyboard and Gorilla glass - will be interesting once I start tweaking with Govnah.
2) Counting 114 installed packages in less than 6 hours of use, I am reminded again about how Preware developers and WebOSInternals people are nothing less than heros and incarnate demi-gods; We should all be bowing in the direction of their offices and perhaps sacrificing virgins at in house shrines / touch stones each evening. If they give up WebOS, not sure what would be done.
3) Looks like it really will be a very solid practical smart phone for a while.. and that's...."ok" - I just have to convince myself I don't' need a phone that will display a bro-stash or tell me what the meaning or life is or try to make up for something else with questionable technical extras.
