    Wow, good question. Base on what I've heard from both phone users... I'd say not really. Unless you are planning to upgrade the plus to a kernel,which would boost the speed from 500mhz stock to 800mhz overclocking.

    I have noticed speed increases in WebOS versions.
    What version was your Pre on when you found it slow?
    Palm m130 > Verizon Trēo 650 > Verizon Trēo 755p > Verizon Palm Prē Plus > TouchPad > Verizon Palm Prē 2

    The difference when you overclock it, even to 720 (like I am) is very noticable.

    Get a Pre Plus. I really like mine, as long as it is overclocked. Stock speed is pretty painful.

    Pre Plus overclocked with CPU scaling and an extended life battery is nothing short of a great phone.

    The Pre Plus stock is pretty responsive, but anything accessing the web or the carrier is dependent on the carrier. Your standards may vary.

    Honestly, I would just stick it out and wait for the merger to be done. Rumors of a Q3 headset release seem to be more than rumors at this point and I don't see where waiting a month or two would kill you.

    If you don't wait, just get the Plus. The updates to the hardware make it a better phone than the original Pre, anyways.

    People base their opinions on Palm off of the original Pre. Though I guess I can't blame them, but there's nothing at all wrong with the Pre Plus.

    The versions of the Pre Plus with WebOS 1.4 already installed are quite a bit better when it comes to build quality. With the patches and overclocking kernels available via Preware, you will also find the boost to performance is VERY nice.

    I am going to wait a bit before I try the new 105 kernel running at 1GHz, just because I don't feel like living THAT close to the bleeding edge. 102 and 104 kernels are enough for my tastes at this point.
