The Palm Pre might currently be the best phone Sprint has to offer right now, but it wont stay that way for long, and as it stands its served its purpose.
As Dan Hesse has already stated, Android device(s) will be hitting Sprint before the end the year. At least one will most likely debut Oct 11th, with pre-sales starting as early as Sept 13th, if you believe the rumors.
With the HTC Hero & Samsung Instinct Q on the way, the Pre is only filling a void in Sprints hardware for a limited time before their are more (and better) choices out there.
It should also be noted that the Pre is only exclusive to Sprint for 6 months and then it should hit VZ, and then what? Will you write how VZ should also be giving the phone away?
