Two years ago I made the leap and jumped on the Palm Pre bandwagon. I still remember the day I brought it home, connected to my home wifi and started downloading from an apps store that had some 300 available applications. In those days, the Pre was a product of Palm, and the WebOS was the first multi-tasking mobile OS created. Even though the phone release was very late and the iPhone was all but dominating the market, I was on Sprint and wanted to give this new product a try. One year later, I found myself on Android! Guess that tells you how it went.
In all honesty, I do think the WebOS is a great platform. It looks great and is very easy to use. It suffered from poor hardware and a lack of app titles and has never really regained the ground it lost back in 2009. In 2010, Palm was purchase by HP and since then, HP has been pumping money into the product like crazy. I have been watching and waiting.
