Had this phone for 10 months now. I really like both WebOS and the form factor, great for text and emails.
A crying shame that HP ditched it, but there is a very active group of developers out there - who get my sincere thanks. Not many apps lacking from the store, in fact none that I feel an urgent need for.
Battery life is marginal for a full day, but the bigger (2800)Mugen battery solved that one.
Now thinking about a replacement in the next six months but will be sorry to part with this super handset.

No 850MhZ UMTS/HSPA?!? Who are they trying to kid, North America runs on 850. They throw in 1900MhZ which is useless, I think there is like one rouge 1900 tower in Ontario, c'mon!

A few answers to some readers

Yes it supports video calls on skype
For those in need of a touchscreen (letters) instead of the sliding keyboard, I am afraid they have to buy another phone!!!

Hp why o why, this is by far the best OS. when my brother asked me to buy a palm pre in 2009 I blew him off & stuck to my iphone. He bought on for me and now theres no going back. the interface is just out of this world, the multimail simplicity, beauty of the OS.
What the hell is wrong with HP? they´ve had the best OS for the past 3 years and have done nothing. The users are actually doing the selling for them. They better not shut this down.

Its the Qualcomm MSM8655T (which also supports CDMA bands on the same chip) not the older MSM8255 (GSM only). Wrong info.
