I don't like the Palm Pre personally because it is a slider phone. I've seen too many of those break. There was a girl who purchased an HTC magic and it broke same day when she opened it and it just kind of seperated. I feel that more unnecessary parts and hinges make the phone easier to break.
I'm glad BlackBerry doesn't make a slider device. Though I'm sure there are some who would like it.
I hate when people get a phone because it looks cool, it should be about your needs and how the device meets them. When I got my BlackBerrry my best friend with her iPhone goes (without any reasoning or back up) "haha BlackBerry sucks!", and then I knew she was one of those people. I stilll love her though.
