PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This week the folks on the webOS forum got into an interesting and productive discussion about how webOS can fit into the current world where iOS and Android seem to have completely stitched up the market. Even Windows Phone 8 is having trouble getting a toe-hold! But there is hope.

You are probably right.

My theory is that a new OS only has a chance if it's cheap and runs on cheap phones. The expensive brands aren't to be found in poor countries, these will love cheap smart phones. If they get a following there there could be a chance of them moving in to the richer countries.

I don't think the targeted audience of WebOS is located in poor countries.
