I think there is room for both on the market. WebOS has a heckuva long ways to go.

I know a lot of people still think that WebOS is just an extension of PalmOS, but they really are completely different, and for their first shot at a next generation OS, they did incredibly well.

However it puts them behind in the developer aspect. Funny though that Rovio brought Angry Birds to WebOS before Android though... gives credit to the lack of fragmentation that WebOS has. 3 generations of hardware in (Pre, Pre Plus, Pre 2) and almost all of the handsets can run every program in the App Catalog (sucks for the Pixi, but that phone wasn't targeted at heavier web users, but people who were in the centro market and are heavier texters), AND they're all getting WebOS 2.0.

I am curious to see what bluecoyote has to say about it.

He may be a bit brash, and it annoys the heck out of me sometimes, but he does have a pretty decent grasp of the developer side of the phone world that some of us have little or no experience with. I would like to see his thoughts on it, if it is more than just a 2 sentence "Who cares, it's not iOS" bit.
