i don't see that much improvement

that screen is so small its hard too see. they should make bigger screen phones.
Dude, it's not all about the screen size. they do make bigger screen phones. Droid X ring a bell? this is just an improvement over the Palm Pre and Pre Plus. It is a vast improvement.

Now, while they definately improved the software and the processing speed, I would still think a better keyboard form would benefit the phone. When you text on it, it feels almost as if the phone will fall forward out of your hands. That being said, it is greatly improved over the previous Pre iterations. HP needs to just make improvements faster if they want to reclaim their throne in the phone market.

It's like HP wants it to fail. I mean $hit they could have at least put a front facing camera on the thing. Geez

This phone really does escape you, doesn't it?

Did Verizon cripple the GPS on your Pre 2?

I noticed that the Pre 2 you reviewed was on Verizon. One of the issues with the Verizon Pre Plus was that they crippled the GPS so that GPS-A only worked with their navigator app (which requires a paid subscription). That meant that other apps, like Google Maps, couldn't get an accurate lock on your position. Could you tell if the Pre 2 you tested had the same issue?

webOS 2.0--

--looks incredibly snappy & intuitive. I still contend it's far superior to anything Apple offers. I can't wait to get my hands on the new Pre.

Great coverage.

webOS on this device seems incredibly snappy. Did you notice if the contact list still has the loading issue that plagued the first Pre? I really like how smooth the interface seems and how responsive it seems when touched.
