I am one of the people who defected to the Droid, only to realize that it was more of a toy, rather than a smartphone. I ended up selling it on eBay and as I predicted it commanded a very nice price.
I am currently using the Palm Pre Plus, which I will say is the best of all of my smartphones, including; Droid, Tour, Storm1, and Storm2. WebOS is a very solid product and find the form factor a plus. Of course there are drawbacks, because webOS has not taken off, the app situation is weak, some people will say battery life, but I have yet to experience that.
Of course, this is just my opinion....
That is the fear I have had for Palm. I really think they are on a sinking ship. The pre was their last straw IMO. But I think it was too little too late. Much like the situation RIM could be in if they don't pick up the pace.

Blackberries are here to stay, and yes great for the business user who they were INITIALLY aimed at, but they are now aimed at the mass market.
RIM needs to address that, and sharpish if it wants to carry on with these record sales its getting.
I love my Storm 1. I love being able to change the OS, the themes and apps (yes more memory is needed in it) but I am considering the HTC EVO 4G if it ever gets out to the public where I am.
As one of those consumers, I want a smartphone that is fast, that carries out the actions I want in real time. The Storm (memory issue) does lag and the browser sucks. Mini Opera is slightly better, but not much.
I am a heavy Blackberry user, I like to be able to access my files on any of my three PC's, (using Docs to go of course) in real time. But I am considering what else is on the market.
One last thing in my little rant, iPhone??? Not on your life.
Not my cup of of tea at all.
Of course, this is just my opinion and is here for debate only.
Also i have a NOKIA N97 as my second/work phone. I'm selling it, its rubbish. Loads of memory but the OS is pants.
Anyone want it?
