PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's no secret that the webOS is no speed demon. Sure, it has the most elegant multitasking interface (the fact that it multitasks at all means it bests both Android and iOS), but it's not exactly fast. This is all going to change. Palm held its Developer Day in New York this weekend, and unveiled its new application development framework, set to replace the current Mojo framework. Not only will this new framework, named Enyo, be a lot faster than Mojo, it will also be designed around multiple display resolutions.

Well, I guess neither Android nor iOS would be a speed demon when running on a device with 500MHz.


Indeed, I am often disappointed with the lack of speed and responsiveness of my Android phone (Motorola Cliq). The phone itself is a nice design but I think the HTC G2 is what I'd prefer in this form factor. That said, I'm still lusting after the Nokia N900 and if they are still available after the first of the year, when my budget allows for it, I may get one. Android is nice, and it's almost the best smartphone platform I've owned but it's not what I thought it would be.

And no, I don't believe I should have to root my phone to get an approximation of full functionality. My first smartphone, a Treo 650, is still my favorite out of the ones I've owned and never required rooting to bend it to my needs. For that matter, neither did the Blackberries I've had over the years, though they all left me wanting greatly regarding processing power. My brief stint with an iPhone, jailbroken or not, left me unimpressed and feeling like I was talking on an iPod with a phone slapped on at the last second.

I'm definitely interested in the N900 as a phone with no boundaries. I'm only apprehensive about two things: Battery life and the resistive touchscreen.
