2.0 out of 5 stars Software- great; hardware and connectivity - disappointing, September 17, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HP 16GB Palm Pre 2 Factory Unlocked QWERTY Keyboard GSM Smart Phone with WebOS Touchscreen Wifi Unlocked Black FB324aa#aba (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought this phone as a complement to my Nokia N8 and N900.

Software: Elegant, artistic and inspiring. The gesture-driven paradigm is brilliant.

Integration of Cloud Services: Seamless. It supports multiple Exchanges profiles and integrates both my work Exchange accounts and my Gmail information nicely.

Voip Connectivity: Doesn't support Skype calling and, apparently, there is no Skype applicaton. Moreover, there is no built-in sip stack so I cannot use my voip account on the phone.

No turn-by-turn navigation (although there are Google maps).

Camera is sh_t - no autofocus. Camera flash is atrocious.

I have found the keyboard cramped and hard to use.

The biggest disappointment, however, is the craftsmanship. After having the phone barely two weeks, I find that the hinge mechanism joining the device to the keyboard is loose and wiggles! What! Are you kidding. In addition, the cheap plastic with which they made this phone is an embarrassment.

Bluetooth: Apparently part of the design, buy one cannot use bluetooth between this phone and another one. Hence, in order to transfer any contact or photos from my other phones, I have to configure some kind of cloud sync. This may be a philosophical point, but I want bluetooth connectivity.

Battery is terrible. Used extremely modestly, I can sometimes not get even a day's use.

SUMMARY: The software is interesting and fun; the other stuff lets the phone down.
