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.
