    Sorry if it's already been said, but does the discount cover the subsidization cost? For instance, say a phone I want is $500 unsubsidized, $200 subsidized, how much will I have to pay for the new phone?

    Whatever seems to be the most useful to me at the time. The way things move in the smart phone world its just too difficult to say. That been said if Palm pull an Apple and just update the OS and leave the hardware relatively untouched, read keep the chip but have it run at 600mhz) then it'll probably be a 1 Ghz Snapdragon device.

    You can bet there are others planned. I think Palm has learned their corporate lesson that in the game they're playing, if you can buy it now, it's obsolete. They are most certainly working on new devices now.

    Not only that, there were rumors that it would come in other colors, with a device designed for "Agent 99" types as well. Sole (the company that made them) never lived up to the artificial hype, so I won't buy from them anymore.

    I would upgrade immediately to another WebOS phone if they can make one with no oreo effect and it doesn't feel has cheap as the way I felt when they dropped the price 2 months after I bought it.

    i love my pre, but i hate how cheap my phone feels and all the quirks that come with it.

    Palm has lost me when it comes to updates for WebOS...the dev community is the only thing keeping me strapped to this Pre....I love WebOS and you guys are making it better with every tweak while Palm sits things we asked for months ago....Thank you Devs!

    I'm about 110% sure I will not have a Pre at the 12 month mark, exchanging the phone every other month because the build quality is so poor has put me off of the Pre cycle. I'm not hard on the phone, if anything I baby the damn thing since its such a piece of crap.

    A WebOS phone, I could go for that. Pre, no, WebOS, yes.

    Cheers,
    Wes

    I have no intention on upgrading so quickly but I have to say that Palm will have ahard time retaining me as a customer because at this point the crappy hardware has ruined my appreciation for such a nice OS. Battery life, reboots, speed, flimsy plastics and poor build quality is tough to get over so I could easily see myself taking a gamble on the hot Android phone of 2010.

    the thing that really stinks is our pre won't even be usable as a media device once we disconnect service. So I'm not investing in apps because when we switch it out then the phone we paid for is a paperweight.

    I'm letting my contract run out, thus I will be depending on Palm's updates to WebOS, which in itself will make my current Pre a fully functional device. I have patience. Once my contract is up, I'll be in the market for the flagship WebOS device (as long as it has a physical keyboard), which could possibly be the 3rd generation Pre or a Treo (with WebOS), or get a 2nd generation Pre on the cheap.

    I'll be eligible next July...My hope is that I'll want to upgrade to a newer-generation WebOS device. But that depends on how well WebOS fleshes out, plus what is put into the new-generation phone.

    If there isn't a new-generation Pre, or if I am gun shy of it because of dissatisfaction with WebOS or a very lame upgrade, I'll have to survey what is out there on Sprint (I'll still be contracted to Sprint for a year after that). Strong contenders would be the latest Android device, or even the latest generation iPhone.

    I've already switched to using an N900 as my primary phone. I was supposed to give it back to a colleague two days ago, and am running out of excuses, so it's back to using the Pre until Nokia gets around to shipping the first retail batch.

    Having a full, uncrippled Linux OS at your fingertips is an unbelievable experience. Getting eight hours of heavy use out of a device not much larger than the Pre is liberating. I'm a Maemo convert.
