webOS vs Android: Which would you choose?

Cell phone upgrade time is upon me again and I need help deciding.  I have Verizon Wireless and will not be switching (they have the closet tower by my house, maybe half a mile away).  I'm caught between going with an Android phone like the LG Ally or the webOS powered Palm Pre. 

Budget is a concern.  I'm not going to spend $300 on a Droid X especially since I don't believe anything that large is remotely practical.  Likewise, $200 for an old Motorola Droid seems unreasonable given its age.

Future proof is a concern too.  I want decent specs that won't worry me.  The Ally runs a processor that supposedly won't be included when Adobe Flash is released.  HP bought Palm so I'm mostly at ease there but without any real future plans from the HP/Palm crowd, should I be concerned? 

So please weigh in.

Splitting Kindling

Its fun revving up the saw and felling a tree.  Its relaxing to rhythmically swing a maul.  Its delightful to hear the wood crack and pop as it splits.  The neatly stacked rows of seasoning wood are a proud accomplishment. Kindling is the one wood heat chore no one seems to like.  Its time consuming.  It can be dangerous.  The meager mound of kindling feels like a weak victory compared to tenacious, stacked cord wood. At least, that's how I felt.  I was never quite sure what to do with it.  I often gathered sticks and sometimes the wood bits from splitting.  When I tried splitting wood down to kindling size, it felt like it took forever.

Drolet HT-2000 Extra Large Wood Stove

Drolet HT-2000 Since our old Blaze King bit the dust, we replaced it with the Drolet HT-2000.  It was a special order from Menards for $1099.  Wait and watch carefully, you can grab it with the 11% rebate.  Its free shipping to the store.  Otherwise, you're looking at a couple hundred in shipping fees to your home.  I also ordered the blower for $100.  Drolet will send a 25% off coupon after registering the warranty so it might be worthwhile waiting to order the blower.
