I want the Palm Pre 2 simply because of the software, nothing out there not even iOS beats WebOs 2.0.

I can do away with the hardware nigles because I'm not looking for the best of everything.

It just so sad that it's not available on any networks, can't afford this on it's own :(.

Surely o2 would like to pick this up as they had the origion palm pre.

This is the OS platform I most want to see set free on some decent tablet hardware.

Come on HP, concentrate on making this happen (and please get it right first time).

It must be good - it's not Apple!!

HP products of past have always been well thought out, usable and robust. Hopefully some of this culture has been passed down to the Palm Pre 2.

The reason for the opening statement about Apple is iTunes - they really need to get rid of it. I don't care how cool or slick the iphone is - it is still tethered to an incredible piece of crapware.

I'm a bit confused by what you mean by poor hardware? Screen aside the hardware specs pretty much matches any high end smartphone.

Personally I don't think the screen is even too much of an issue. Yes bigger and higher res is better but given that you don't lose any space to the virtual keyboard 3.1" should be okay in practice.

@rav: Small, low res screen. Poor camera. Not a particularly good keyboard. Plastic construction (though this has its upsides as well). It's not appalling but when you can get significantly better on a variety of other devices.

Fair enough. I was thinking more about the components but when you're spending 400 notes you' like to have something you can show off to your mates.

I used to have an iPhone 3GS!
+ then got a palm ore 2,
Hate the palm! Freezes all the time, doesn't receive all texts or calls! It's crap to be honest!
I recommend you don't get one!

And have to put the password on for the Internet everyday!
