It is very sad to see how badly it has done.

I think the OS is better suited for tablets..just applications were pretty much non existent.

what? WebOS is undeniably awesome. The hardware and 3rd party support has sucked though.

WebOS is an amazing OS, it is certainly far superior to Android.

Unfortunately, just like O/S 2 was superior to Windows but died due to a lack of applications, WebOS will die due to a lack of applications despite technical superiority.

Less competition is hardly ever good news for consumers.

I had the chance to extensively use a new/upcoming webOS device (Pre) and I was not at all impressed.

While the hardware wasn't that good, it was the webOS interface that I found horrible. It was lightyears behind Android and IOS in terms of the user experience.

One thing that really sucked was the omission of an Onscreen keyboard. Users are forced to extend and use the physical keyboard for ALL input.

Web OS is beyond light years ahead of android!!! Cool

It didn't do well because of the lack of apps and wrong timing. I think what you experienced was "The learning curve."

This is a learning curve to OS that is sophisticated as webOS with all the new swipe gestures and etc. You admittedly said that you got your hands on one kind of leading me to assumed that it was probably something you had in your hands for less than a week. Now if you didn't play with this device for at least a week or more, than how can you truly make a good review of the phone. Hardware yes I agree sucked and the phones themselves were all ugly to me, but the OS is on a whole other planet.

I've had this device for a couple of months.

webOS sucks. It's got nothing on Android. Tasks that are simple to figure out and do with Android are either not available or buried somewhere with webOS.

For example, deleting a Bluetooth device that was paired. Or deleting all contacts. Or any number of tasks that should be simple.

... Right, because we all like to delete paired bluetooth items and erace our contact list every few days.

And there are some who think that making it hard to do things which are irreversible (like deleting your entire contact list) is a very good idea so that people don't do it accidentally.
