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.

"because nobody gives a rat's bum about The Netherlands."

For once I do agree with you Thom. ;)

Having been one of the "suckers" who purchased a webOS phone... you have not missed anything. While the OS was in general a decent implementation realized on shit HW, it was nothing to write home about. I much prefer the iOS features/interface.

nope,
french pre3 owner here. I've bought it for 180e Touchstone included (so thom, why you didn't import it from here?) i've heard terrible story about broken pre and pre2, but my pre3 is very well made!!!
ps: i've buy it to replace my broken n900. And even if the multitasking is good on palm, it's not in par with maemo. Soon, my pre3 will retired, i've received my n9 ;) (feeling like an amiga owner in pc world)
ps:sent with my pre3 ;) ))
