Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

Hey guys,
Truly considering moving to a pre from my TP. Was thinking about wating for the TP2... but the Pre just seems so awesome. Tell me what are your greatest annoyances with it and what truly sells it as your phone for some time to come? Also, what are your biggest annoyances with leaving Windows Mobile.

Re: Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

Stable, polished, fluid OS = Pre

Ability to customize to no end = Pro2

Capactitive multitouch screen = Pre

Bigger higher resolution screen = Pro2

synergy over the air sync = Pre

Better Keyboard = Pro2

Better 2d GFX = Pre

Tethering = Pro2 (ATM)

3.5mm jack = Pre

Applications available = Pro2 (Pre apps will come but WM is too ahead ATM)
.................................................. ..............

there are a lot of pros and cons betwwen them but just to get you started, depends on what your needs are and what you like in a smartphone

Re: Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

Puerto Rico! Representar! De que parte eres?

However, moving on. Awesome, that really moves me a bit foward. The only thing i'm really "afraid of" is the loss of WM since it has soooo many apps atm. However, the TP2 really is just a glorified Touch Pro so i'm wondering if the experience will truly be better than the TP. The new manilla is nice, but the pre ui is so crisp. Keep the info coming guys.

Re: Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

Too many options for both. That's why I got a Touch Pro and a Pre.

Re: Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

Im in the same boat as shaun0207. I got the Pre and while its pretty awesome, it still has a lot of work to go to truly replace my TPro as my main phone. If you already have a TPro, the TP2 is a pretty minor upgrade in all reality, so try the Pre. But keep the TPro to switch back and forth with...

Re: Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

Am i able to switch back and forth without having to go to a sprint store? Mind you this might seem like a noobish question but... If i knew how to do this it would actually be pretty neat lol. But keep moving this thread foward, i'm sure there are alot others who are in the same boat as me.

Btw: Those saying the TP2 is a minor upgrade, i agree but i feel it is the way the TP should have been originally.

*bigger screen
*Windows HARD BUTTON! (Thank god)
*New Manilla
*Better Keyboard
*Speaker that doesn't suck
*Much sexier

Re: Thinking About Making Move to Pre instead of TP2 Help me Decide

A lot of you know that my wife and I have been out of contract since October/November. We went and look at the Pre last weekend...she wants one and I'm still on the fence. Right now I'm still leaning towards the TP2. Maybe we'll get one of each....but more dicussion on this matter is certainly needed.

late,
Coz
