    My Droid2 is pretty much dead. I looked around for my best bet for an off contract smart phone (until Verizon comes out with something I want to upgrade to) and decided to try out WebOS. I know the hardware isn't as strong but that's not a terribly big concern of mine. The major concern of mine is what will I be missing out on?

    1) GPS - The Android free GPS is amazing. Does WebOS have an alternative?

    2) Contacts - When I would reimage my Android devices all of my contacts would sync through my google account. Is this possible with WebOS?

    3) I know the Pre Plus does not come with a Micro SD card but does it have a slot for one?

    Thanks for the response.


    Can you give me the name of the GPS app? Everything on google is saying to use VZNav which is an ugly $10 a month.

    I also am coming from a droid 2 to the pre world. I highly suggest a pre2 but if the pre plus is what you can get, then that's good still.

    my contacts transferred fine, just make sure to back up on ur droid first.

    As previously mentioned, the Pre 2 is a much, much, much better experience compared to the Pre +.

    It really is worth $50 more.

    If one just needed some kind of webos phone, the Pixi is a steal at $40USD shipped.

    I personally am not a big fan of the pre 2. It's just slightly bigger and bulkier then the pre +. I just love the form factor of the pre +, but everyone is different. My pre- overclocked to 1ghz, was just as fast as the pre 2. I hated the android huge brick phones.

    Your not going to find a good alternate to Navigation on Android for webOS without paying the monies. And the Pre Plus on Verizon is horrible apparently from the post on here.

    koolkid, wheres the post about the pre+. I'm sure everyone has had their own experiences with the pre-, pre+, good and bad. I like the pre- too, except for the limited storage. The pre- does everything I need it to do. I mainly use it as a phone, and tethering and it does an awesome job. Lately I've been putting movies on it, but run out of space quick, that's why I like the pre+.

    I didn't mean to say the phone was horrible. I meant the GPS on it was.

    I appreciate the suggestions for the Pre 2 but this is more of a "hold me over" phone because i'm in a gray area between my Droid 2 and my next long term phone (as soon as it comes out on Verizon).

    As already said, there is no free GPS navigation app for webOS. I know from my own experience that your Google contacts will sync nicely. Sadly, no microSD card slot in the pre+.

    Speaking as to the GPS on the Pre+, I had a tough time getting mine to lock on and stay locked, despite the various methods and patches. My android is leaps and bounds better in the GPS dept.
