    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 cards (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).

    The phone that generated much hype when announced at CES and introduced a truly intuitive and innovative OS navigation. Unfortunately the Pre shipped with woefully underpowered CPU and a massive failed marketing strategy. While the device is still useable after 2.5 years - It's only thanks to overclocking to twice the as-shipped settings. App support never truly arrived - and hardware issues off the bat hindered a lot of potential momentum. The Pre and webOS is truly an example of how a homebrew community can keep a product alive and kicking - for without them this product would have died off as another flop without much hoopla. It's not going to be a massive contender, but the recent open-sourcing of the entire OS leaves a speculative future for the OS that was launched with this device, and if the past is any indication - chances are good it'll be the little OS that could.

    By far webOS is the best smartphone operating system out there... period. The only reason this phone wasn't more of a success was due to under-powering hardware... I will admit that I wasn't a fan of the sliding mechanism originally but it grew on me. I also though the screen was a tad on the small side (which really makes me wonder why the hell HP thought going smaller would be a good idea... veer). The camera was not that great by today's standards but it got the job done once it finally opened. Call quality was fair, I found my self occasionally plugging one ear in noisy environments. Performance was lacking due to outdated hardware. Software: OS wise was almost perfect, apps wise was almost nonexistent. Battery life was always a problem, on launch day it was unacceptably low, but improved with software updates. Unfortunately, battery life just never got were it needed to be. The touchstone accessories are the standard barer in my opinion when it comes to wireless charging. All in all I can't recommend this phone due to all its short comings but Palm/HP really had something here and I don't think we should ever forgive them for screwing it all up.
