    I agree, people that were waiting for the Pre 3 were delusional. And sadly those people were so fanatical and fanboish I think they would rather rock a flip-phone than admit that Android/WP7 are much mroe more powerful OS. FYI I have 0, I repeat 0 problems multi-tasking or getting stuff done with Android. As a launch day Pre owner, WebOS deserved better but I'm glad it's over and now we can all move on.

    After having the EVO 3D for a month now after having a Palm device for the last 11 years or so, I agree that it's a powerful device. But there are things that WebOS just does/did better than Android. Multi-tasking is fine but just isn't as simple and intuitive as it was on my Palm Pre. I really don't care for how notifications are done on Android. I find myself pulling the notification bar down all the time when I'd rather just be doing what I want to do on the phone. I really don't consider myself a fanboy but I sure was rooting for WebOS to make a comeback.

    I disagree. Webos notifications were nice for the first 6 months but they got annoying, quickly. Android's are always at the top and never take up any screen real estate. Plus everthing that happens with your phone gives a notification at the top, unlike webOS. I will agree that the ability to dismiss individual notifications are a huge plus, but the pros still outweigh the cons. I don't really get the intuitive argument, do people use PC/MAC's? What's so unituitive about Android? Android is more intuitive because it's faster. Apps on my 3D open instantly, even the veer has severe lag.

    I agree with alot you said except the notifications. I love how they were done one webos. Android can polish its notifications alot more. As usual stated we still can't just get rid of one. That needs to be fixed asap.

    I mourn Web OS and hope it finds new life elsewhere. I was a launch day Pre owner and hoped Sprint would get the Pre 3 but once the Evo 3D was announced, I knew I was going to get it.
    Now, almost 2 months with it, I am enjoying the Android experience and all the great apps I could never get on the Pre (Slingbox anyone?)
    I miss the Touchstone and how I could close an app by flicking it up, but that's it.
    Now if HP wants to get rid of its Touchpad stock by marking them down to $100, I'd take the plunge. For an ereader and easy way to get on the Net, you could do worse.

    They already "bought" webOS. The guy responsible, Matias Duarte, for the development of webOS went to work for Android last year. He is the Senior Director Of Human Interface & User Experience for Android. So if you liked webOS your going to love Ice Cream Sandwich. IMHO Matias's vision for mobile UI is the best on the planet. I for one am extremely proud to be a part of it all !!

    I think the Android notification system is just fine...I especially love the way the bar rolls for certain incoming messages. I found WebOS system annoying after while how it would take up what little real estate you had on the Pre. If Android system wasn't a good ideal then Apple wouldn't have used it in IOS 5.

    HP's done just that!! Head over to Precentral.net and check it out. I just purchased the 32gb for $149.99 plus some discounts. Check the touchpad threads for a slickdeal with discount. Hurry though, the 16gb has sold out already.

    BREAKING: HP shutting down webOS device operations, will "continue to explore options"

    Be careful when you consider buying a discontinued product. Will apps continue to be updated so tha tthey will still work?

    Hi, I'm a webOS person who will be getting an EVO 3D or an EVO 4G soon. I plan on doing all the rooting stuff so that I can get WiFi tethering. I'm trying to find out if there's a way to reload Android onto the phone in the event I totally hose it. With webOS we have the webOS Doctor that completely wipes the OS partition on the phone and installs a fresh copy of webOS. Is there also something similar for the EVO 3D...or for any Android phone for that matter?

    Wow. i think you are just a little **** hurt over the loss of a far superior OS. WebOS is smooth like butter. i am currently rocking a evo 3D.... but i want my WebOS back. i want a port for it on my 3D.

    If you look up webOS in the dictionary you'll find a picture of Matias Duarte, the brains behind webOS. He has been at Android for about 14 months. He'll be delivering Ice Cream Sandwich's by the end of the year.

    If I've said it once, I've said it twice. Matias's vision of what a UI should be *is* webOS. That thing at HP is a cheap imitation with limited functionality.

    tired argument again and again. Webos looked smooth, but functionally never was, it was slow as **** and had a pathetic amount of APIs available to developers. Keep thinking that though. HP must have realized how flawed the code was and gave up. even enyo couldn't speed up the OS.

    Ever wonder why Palm never sued anyone over the Palm patents? They don't own them...

    If you still have an account at PreCentral, here is why HP can't license out webOS. The problem is that Palm is licensing the key patents from Acacia. It is Acacia who has already licensed out the Palm Pantents to Motorola (now Google), Samsung, RIM, Nokia, Apple, etc.

    HP had the rights to make the hardware which they just canceled.

    webOS can't be licensed out.

    I've seen lots of recommendations for Itching Thumb as a way to replace the awesome cards meatphor in webOS, but the Android Market page for the app seems to have disappeared. Anyone know what happened?

    It appears as though Itching Thumb has been pulled from the Market.

    Late to join the party here. Just got me a EVO3d and getting used to it.
    Sad to watch the old ship sink, but time to move on.
    What kinda SD cards do you guys have?

    I have become pretty comfortable with my Evo 3D. It now has the functionality that I need with Epocrates and Companionlink/DejaOffice. Companionlink is working just fine for me. DejaOffice is much better in many ways than Classic on the Palm Pre though Classic served its purpose well while I had it.

    My thoughts on the Evo 3D vs. Pre:

    POSITIVES: I really like how fast it is compared to my old clunky Pre minus. Nice to have so many apps to choose from including medical apps. The 3D pictures and video are great -- something iPhone users don't have. Great to have the weather stats on the home screen without a separate app. The screen is beautiful with its incredibly high resolution. Overall, superior hardware without a doubt. It's a solid phone unlike the seemingly fragile Pre. Hey, the memory's expandable with microSD!

    NEGATIVES: I don't like super-sensitive power button--I constantly find myself accidentally turning off my phone. Virtual keyboard is so-so--still getting used to it. I wish it were a bit smaller (shorter) so it fit in my pocket better like the Pre. I also wish the battery life were better--though it's still an improvement over the Pre.

    I miss WebOS Internals/Homebrew Community/Preware, card view, physical keyboard. Virtual keyboard is ok, but I find myself mis-typing too often. Rooting looks like a bit of a pain, but maybe someday... Anyway, I'm happy so far with the Evo 3D. I've moved on.

    Try swype, I use it exclusively and rarely ever get typos. Best VK in my opinion. Could never go back to a physical and I think the market agrees. Hardware keyboards are a thing of the past. Now let's see what Durante can come up with as day as Ui.
