    I did the due diligence thing and tried out Android and Blackberry before settling on WebOS.

    While I agree with many that the hardware feels a bit lackluster, it is hard to deny the quality of the OS.

    I, for one, look forward to seeing webOS running on some killer hardware that will really let it shine above the rest. At this time next year, when I'm due for my next phone, I'm pretty sure there will be something really cool out there.

    It's impossible to answer this question. Because it depends on the specs and performance of the next WebOS device. And no one knows what that will be. Additionally, we don't know the specs of the HTC Supersonic, so it's hard to compare that.

    What I can compare today is this: Nexus One specs vs Pre Plus specs. On specs alone, I'd chose the Nexus One. But that assumes an awful lot of how the N1 will perform in reality. The Pre doesn't perform (IMHO) anywhere near in practice to what I expected from looking at it's specs.

    Of the phones that you listed above, I am unable to compare ANY of them to the real world Pre and Pre Plus that is available today. So I really don't know how to answer this question. I chose other - meaning "I dunno".

    It's kinda early, I think, for anyone to make up their mind on any of the options. The "next WebOS device" could be a Palm Pre Plus Plus, and it could fix every common hardware problem with the current models or none of them.

    Likewise, the Supersonic has merely been seen and spec'd out. No one's touched a final build, as there isn't one yet.

    Nexus One is the only real known quantity, and you still have to buy it sight unseen for now.

    I will be keeping my pre until an updated version or a larger screen/keyboard version comes out that suits me. The updated or other versions will have to be nothing short of AMAZING to be able to be on par with my current webos phone.

    I've used every mobile op out their both past and present and webOs rocks. Could you imagine if WebOs came out on hardware like "Droid".... or even better a Sanpdragon with an auto focus camera....drool

    The only thing I would like to see one day is a landscape slider with a larger higher resolution screen. But then again that's just my crazy curiosity.

    All I know is, it's too early to tell what is going to come out and when it will be available for the general public to buy... I for one am going to wait and see what will happen, but since I'm sprint premier, it would be a shame not to switch it out as often as possible, plus I like getting new toys.

    As far as Palm goes, I LOVE WEBOS, but I just wish it was on better built hardware, and with more RAM to start with...

    Android updates just suck in general. They don't happen in a timely manner at all for anyone. If you care about running the latest software within a reasonable timeframe then the only way to update your Android hardware is to buy brand new Android hardware.

    WebOS is just a much better experience anyway. Nothing else comes close. I'll be sticking with Palm for a long time.
    no because nexus gets an immediate update because its a direct from google phone and google has made numerous announcements about this

    i totally agree.
    more RAM and CPU power and overall everything to match the OS

    I really have to test all 3 devices thoroughly before making a decision. My guess is that Nexus One will only be available online via google so I will not be able to test it unless I know someone else who gets one. That may be a problem.

    Google Marketplace has thousands, upon thousands of apps and games. Also, they normally have demos for the majority of whatever is posted. However, there's a disparity. Google has fragmented their user base. Some apps require being updated to Android 2.0. Which means, some users are stuck on 1.5 or 1.6 and can't use the app. Such as, Google Navigation requires 2.0. If you have 1.6, you just have regular Google maps.
