Having spent quite a bit of time with my Samgsung Focus (WP7), I'm pretty happy with the OS, but the more I use this mobile OS the more I miss webOS. WP7 has numerous features that appear webOS inspired: fast app switching, toasting notifications, even live tiles provide up-to-date information like Palm's cards. So I ask you, gdgt community, is lusting after the HP Pre 3 a sign of mental illness and should I stick with an active platform like WP7?
I've been after a Pre3 for so long, I think it just looks like a fantastic phone and I am gutted by HP's decision to end their development of WebOS and the Pre hardware, but my question is- Is the Pre3 worth the £10.50 that Carphone Warehouse are currently selling it for? Granted thats on a 2 year contract with Vodaphone, but I figure you could probably sell the device for £200 in a couple of months and pay out the contract if I change my mind.

I know they were going to sell for ~$75 after the webOS device discontinuation, and I'm wondering if that price break ever happened. Would love to import one from UK/France...
If I remember correctly the palm pre and palm pre 2 didn't really work with bar code scanners because it didn't have auto focus. It just had a pre set focus a certain distance away. I know personally from owning a Pre the camera wasn't real great and the 1 app someone did make didn't seem to work well. Any one know any more info on the camera other than it is 5 megapixels?
I'm starting to yearn for a new phone. Should I feel safe holding out for the Pre 3 to be released, whenever that will be, or should I just get an android phone? Some of the new OS announcements from google at their I/O are very tempting. What if i do hold out till July for the Pre 3? Is there a device that I should choose over it? Remember i'll be on Sprint and that's non negotiable considering how cheap they are for their family plans. All thoughts are appreciated. answer this...
After the debacle with iTunes and the original pre I am concerned. My HTC incredible is great but with no integrated media ecosystem I have always been slightly disappointed. Does anyone know what the new HP stuff will have?
