    Having recently bought my Pre 2 for £100, I can say that by no means does it compete directly with the Galaxy S III or iPhone 4S, but neither does it need to. With such a low price of for buying a brand new smartphone, the Pre 2 is amazing. Its 1GHz processor and webOS 2.2.4 completely desecrate ant cheap, Froyo-toting Android device at the same price point, and offers the same screen size, resolution and processor speed of the Wildfire S for £50 less, or even more if the Wildfire is unlocked. The App Catalog may be somewhat barren, but there are a few good iOS game ports, and a vibrant homebrew community, not to mention HP Synergy, Just Type, and many other features that set apart webOS as unique. Not the greatest phone, but certainly one of the best cheap, SIM-free & unlocked devices available today.

    It's a decent phone, but it was a bit behind the times even when it launched, and now it's hopefully out of date. Should you run out and buy this phone? No. I don't want to say that, as I really like Palm and love webOS, and there are so many good things about the software, but the lackluster hardware, non competitive app selection, and few lingering problems with the OS combined mean I cant really recommend it. But I almost feel that HP thinks the same thing. It's as if they put this device on the market just to say that they had something at least remotely competitive with the latest Android devices and the iPhone 4, and for developers to test apps on. I was really excited about the next generation when I first reviewed it, but obviously, that didn't really happen.

    It's a fine phone, really, and it does some things really well, but it is also an old phone, and standards have gone up quite a bit since it launched. If you really want a cheap unlocked phone, there are better options out there and it may be worth it to splurge a little on a device you'll have with you at all hours of the day and night.
