In a world dominated by bland large rectangular phones with buttons all over them, I absolutely love the look of the Pre.... and most times I'm in a store looking at electronics (in reference to the phone, such as bluetooth earpiece for example), the sales people tend to take a good look and comment about how nice it looks, and then ask to see how it works.

It's sad and funny... funny to see them kinda squirm about seeing a better phone/OS, but sad that unless someone gets some brains in HP, there's never going to be another Pre.
But at this point, all I can say is that for a phone that's somewhat "old" in terms of all the newer models, it still holds it's own.
My only peeves with mine is the reception is poor and that since 2.2.4, I've had to put my BlueAnt earpiece away as it no longer worked correctly with it, and had to try a few other ones. Right now, I've settled on the Jawbone Icon and it's not as great as my BlueAnt was, but it works better than the others I've tried. Very annoying, considering that with 2.1, it worked flawlessly.... Even re-doctored it, but eventually the phone re-updated itself, and while it's a sacrifice of the Bluetooth, 2.2.4 does fix other flaws.
