PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless When talking about the webOS, one of the main complaints is often that the operating system feels sluggish, especially considering the Pre has the same hardware as the iPhone 3GS. At a webOS Developer Event in London, Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer (the Mozilla guys who joined Palm) talked about why this is the case, and hinted that it will be fixed sooner rather than later. They also addressed The One Question: will Palm ever open source the webOS?

While battery life is pretty pathetic compared to classic feature phones it's enough to last the day - after which I put it on the touchstone and it's recharged pretty quickly. Not a big deal actually.

Other smartphones are only slightly better and the Pre is still young with room for optimizations.

Anybody who needs days of use between recharging should avoid smartphones. What makes them smart, nice and cool also makes them use up energy and nobody wants to carry the bricks around it would need to make an Iphone or a Pre work for a week or more as classic phones cold.
