Told you so...

Now is not the time to crying over spilled milk. We got Ice Cream Sandwich, iOS 5 and WP7 Mango on the horizon with new handsets to boot!

webOS' fate was doomed from the beginning. Palm was just too little too late. It was an outstanding OS but just poorly executed. It wasn't just the hardware either. The market was just too crowded and Android really took off. Had only Palm released the Pre before the G1 and put it on a bigger carrier such as Verizon. Cause Sprint was not the right way to go. They had the worst marketing. Lots of things went wrong and Palm made bad decisions. Just too bad.

As an Android user, I can only hope that Google will take some cues from webOS and implement into further Android releases.
