I'm still using a Pre2, best webOS-device ever, but after 3 years and several crash downs on the floor, it get's "messed up". So I took a second Pre2, quite new, and will replace the first one.

The phone itself, including text messages, e-mail, calender (if not too big), contacts or some web-browsing works without big flaws, for SSL you might add updated certificates by your self, because that's not done by HP/Palm anymore.
The content of the "App Catalog" I would call mostly "not existig" anymore, even if there are still some very good Apps available, but quantity and quality are far, very far away from what you know from iOS or Android.
If you are fine with this and when you love small devices with portrait-slider, the Pre2 is perfect for you.
If you prefer a bigger screen, the Pre3 might be interesting too, the hardware-build quality is better than the one of the Pre2, but you have to look for a 16GB-version, the majority only has 8GB, while the Pre2 always has 16GB. One big disadvantage of the Pre3 is the smaller RAM, because it is shared with the modem, the Pre2 has 512MB for itself with dedicated modem RAM.
