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.

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...


+1 on that here... To me it generally seems a matter of use case, though... switched from a K800i to a Pre a while ago and never regretted. Talking about mobile devices, it's always a trade-off between device size, battery lifetime and screen (or, more important, keyboard) size. In most cases, the mobile device to me is the "uplink" to be online in situations in which I can't (technically, or due to space limitations - imagine the morning crowd in public transport) operate with larger computing devices. In such situations, as soon as the onboard software (browser, mail client, ...) does (a) render all the content you need reliably and in a pleasant way and (b) allows for easy-to-use facilities of scrolling and zooming, large screen size becomes an argument less relevant... ;)
