Summary: I own an older Palm Pre 8gb, so this was in my comfort zone. I bought it mainly just to be an mp3 player, but also to be like a second phone if I decided not to carry around my Sony Xperia U. It's a great phone, and I love Palm OS and the Homebrew apps. It's just that whenever I hooked the phone up to my computer and started transferring music, an error message would appear as if I had disconnected the phone.
Summary: I love the Palm Pre Plus. This is the third one I've owned. The power button goes out after almost a years use but the phone is still completely usable. I dropped the first one several times and was pretty rough on it but it still lasted me two years. The second one I had is still in great working condition but I am switching carriers and had to get a new phone to do so, I chose to stick with the pre plus.
Summary: I bought this phone after researching it for my wife. The Palm OS is easy to learn, use, and seamlessly integrates into everyday use. This is a powerful little phone that even has a reflective panel in the back if you plan on using it for an on the spot make up mirror or to take a self portrait. Good build quality and decent battery life. The call quality leaves more to be desired as well as the speakerphone volume is a bit weak.
Summary: To bad it was Palm's "hail Mary", and it didn't go as well as they wanted it to. And now that Hewlett Packard has purchased Palm, and is all but ignoring this phone, it's quickly degrading to the point where it will be nearly useless before it actually wears out. Sad ... like I say, this "was" the best phone ever. Addendum: HP has now disabled Google Maps on this phone, and re-routes any requests for map information to "Bing".
