PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless More mobile phone news! Rumours of an upcoming Palm Pre 2 have been swirling for a while, but now a French carrier has jumped the gun and spilled all the beans. Clearly a transitional device to bridge the gap between the first true HP devices, the devices updates and streamlines the Palm Pre Plus with an updated case, display, and internals. Also, it will pack webOS 2.0.

I actually would buy it for the fact that it has a small screen. I want a mobile phone, not a damn pocket computer.

Then buy a feature phone. If I have a GHz cpu and the ability to do everything on the web that I can on my workstation, I want to. Good luck browsing web forums and such with a 3.1" screen. Useless.

Actually, believe it or not, I daily browse OSnews and several Wordpress blogs on the 2.36" display of my E63 and it just works perfectly fine...

In fact, since a bigger display almost always means one of the following...
-A tactile keyboard with no haptic feedback and hence a tragic love of missed keys
-A fragile slider
-An alphanumeric pad like in the olde days
...I think that for an heavy comment/mail/text user and casual web browser like me, the format used by most Eseries and Blackberries just does its job perfectly fine...

What if I actually want android and all the advantages it brings?

Good luck browsing web forums and such with a 3.1"

I have an X10 mini pro with a 2.6" screen and find most web pages perfectly usable.
