It's almost 2012 and I still use this phone. The trick to this longevity is knowing and accepting what the phone is and is not capable of doing. By doing this you may not be able to live a power-user lifestyle, but you instead get the comfort of working within a framework that just makes complete sense.
To me, the killer feature of the Pre is not <em>cards</em> (though they are great), but instead gestures -- specifically those in the "gesture area." Swiping left to go back not only frees up screen real estate but is so utterly intuitive it actually makes using other touch products more complicated by comparison.
I'm going to use this phone until it will no longer function (or maybe until the N800 comes state-side -- whichever happens first).
