PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Lukas Mathis touts many webOS features that he wants other vendors to steal. All this stuff just makes me more sad I never got to try webOS on anything because nobody gives a rat's bum about The Netherlands. WebOS never came to market here. Especially its multitasking with cards looks so much more elegant than the horrible "multi"tasking implementations on Android and iOS. Hopeful note: Matias Duarte now heads the UX team for Android.

I second that! I'm typing this from my Touchpad running CM9. It is so much faster. I installed it this weekend, and haven't needed to boot back into WebOS.

Don't get me wrong, I love WebOS and it will always have a place in my heart. I carried the original Pre for two years, and would have stood in line to get a Pre3 if they didn't kill it off. I reluctantly switched to Android because the Pre just became too slow.

The only thing I miss from WebOS is the wave bar. I have an Android app that duplicates its functionality on my Gingerbread phone, by it doesn't seem to work on ICS. I'm hoping the developer gets it working soon.

The best part is that all the Apps from my phone automatically download to the tablet. Some of them gained new features that must only be available on a tablet.
