I am out of contract on my plan and rather than rush to upgrade and get into a new contract, I am going to wait for June and see what the iPhone 5 brings. Maybe dual-core Android, who knows?
Anyway, my current phone is old and terrible, so I was looking into relatively inexpensive options to upgrade for the next few months since I am sick of this thing. I can buy a Pixi Plus today for $55 or can troll around Ebay and find a Pre Plus for about $140.
My question is whether or not the Pre is worth the extra money. I like the Palm phones since they are significantly cheaper than buying a decent Android phone w/o contract and I can get a new phone rather than a used phone. Plus the free mobile hotspot saves me the headache of using a workaround, and the homebrew world of WebOS seems strong. Who knows, I might just ditch Apple and Google in June and get a WebOS device if I like it enough.
So any thoughts? Generally I've got the impression the Pixi is a "weaker" model than the Pre, and while I prefer the slide out keyboard to the fixed keyboard, I am all for saving $90. As far as use? Actually making calls remains important to me, and other than that I'd probably look to use Pandora/Slacker at the office, and I like to use my phone as a shopping aid to check prices. I am sure there are some WebOS apps for that.
