Just wanted to check in with everybody to see where other members are at in their anticipation of webOS 2.0 and new hardware. and how that aligns with your personal hardware/mobile plan situation.
I have only had my pre + on Verizon since May, and I love everything about it (well not everything, but enough to be on here), but I know that many, or most perhaps, are Sprint original pre users, and are dying for new hardware. I mean I am already salivating at the thought of new hardware, and I am only a few months into my contract.
At what point will you become too frustrated, or out of patience with your current web OS device and bail on Palm and web OS for an alternate OS, even if temporarily?
We really have no clue at this point when new hardware will be coming, OR what it will offer fully, and on top of that we each have unique contract and device situations to boot.
Me personally, I am willing to wait my contract out, as I usually do anyways, and if at the end of 2 years(or when my early upgrade comes) there is still no new device, I would have to bail, given that my pre lasts that long, and verizon hasn't run out replacements.
However my wife is already furious with hers, and is ready to switch to anything available. Thinking about it, I am not at all as technologically inclined as the majority of users on here, and really have no loyal ties to palm, other than my current happiness with what I have. It is my first smart phone ever, so I could have gotten a droid and possibly been quite satisfied with that in my ignorance of webOS.
What is your breaking point right now as you see it?
