So, as somebody in the UK,
- No network (carrier) sells any Palm or HP phones right now. It's been this way for a number of months.
- There's apparently no "upgrade path" coming from O2, who originally sold me mine.
Given this my gut feeling is that the Pre, in whatever form, is unlikely to come back to the UK. The lack of a 2.0 upgrade right now, while annoying, isn't a huge deal for me. What is is the liklihood that once this Pre breaks (I already have some broken plastic by the USB port), or once 1.4.5 is too ancient for most apps to work, I will have no way to stay with WebOS and will have to change, thus abandoning my investment in apps, etc.
Not happy right now.
