Hardware, Embedded Systems And, of course, just as I decide to leave the live blogging to play a game of Left 4 Dead 2, HP drops the big bombshell right at the end of their press event: webOS is coming to PCs!

stag·nant Adjective /ˈstagnənt/
adjective: sluggish, inert, slack, stationary

1. (of a body of water or the atmosphere of a confined space) Having no current or flow and often having an unpleasant smell as a consequence
- a stagnant ditch

2. Showing no activity; dull and sluggish
- a stagnant economy

Given that Verizon's biggest launch to date is the iPhone 4, and that iTablets are selling like hotcakes, and the only thing that the xoom has going for it so far is a half assed superbowl commercial. I fail to see how iOS devices can be remotely referred to as being "stagnant." Esp since the iPad 2 is around the corner.

And yes Android devices share is also growing rapidly. But from there to saying iOS is frozen is a bit of a stretch. iOS for example has already unified support for both phones and tables. Whereas Google is yet to even address some consistency between Android 3 (tablets) and Android 2 (phones mostly)
