Palm pre community members are sad
They are cheating in the Incredible vs. Pre poll.
Picking up 50 votes per minute while the incredible is only picking up 10.
You can vote as many times as you want by refreshing the page and palm users have apparently developed a bot to assist them in their cheating.
I urge everybody to vote as many times as possible, lets make their pathetic efforts to cheat a waste of time.

This isnt a PRE Forum
I am a launch day Pre to Launch day EVO Convert but ... what does this thread have anything to do with our beloved EVO.

Unless I'm missing something there is no way to cheat unless you use different computers with different IP addresses. You can refresh all you want and vote again but the count does not change and you get a message that says "Thank you, your vote has already been counted"
I still use my Pre as my primary device and use my EVO as a tablet / secondary phone. Both devices have their strengths and weaknesses.
Lets face it. WebOS is by far the best mobile operating system out there. If you don't believe that, you are in denial. If only it had more developer support, better hardware and Google or Apples marketing machine, it would rule the world.

Hardware aside, WebOS by itself is a great mobile platform.
You can't seriously deny - if you spent any time with WebOS - that multitasking with it is just a breeze, and the OS is so intuitive that it only takes a few minutes to learn the basics and be productive on it. For tweaking, no rooting needed, just a turn Developer mode on and you could start customizing your device. And Palm even provided a tool to get the device back to factory settings in case you messed up bad...simply brilliant.
Unfortunately, as it has been Palm's tradition for the last few years, WebOS was released lacking basic functionality available on prior Palm devices, and the hardware left much to be desired in terms of quality and durability. Coupled with lack of effective company marketing, the OS so far has not been embraced by many on the developing community.
Sadly, I don't see a bright future for WebOS on the smartphone market at all. However, I am very pleased that Google has hired the man behind WebOS UI development to work on future Android versions. If Android adopts the ease of use of webOS future releases, it will make this the dominant platform for mobile computing for years to come.

Wow lot if confused people here. Webos probably has the best USER INTERFACE.
Operating system and user interface are two different things.
Webos did not have a voice recorder, voice dialer, useful apps, customization, code optimization, nothing. It lacked in features. It just looked pretty. Don't kid yourself.
The reason I started hating he precentral community is because they started to become heavy fanboys.
Google went for features first, which is why I like them. Palm was too small of a company and went too slowly. They should have just hired that Jason Robitaille guy.

The fact of the matter is that I can do more with Android out of the box than I could ever do with my fully patched and overclocked Pre. I haven't rooted because I haven't needed to. I can multi-task just as well, and, in some ways, better, on my EVO. I don't ever have to shut down my phone just to get it to work like I often had to do with my Pre. You can blame the issues on hardware all you want, but the Pre's processor is still good and the Pre plus has plenty of ram. WebOS is simply not an efficient operating system at the moment. Maybe new hardware will allow them to power through their issues, but we'll have to wait and see about that.
The one thing I really miss about the Pre is how open Palm allowed the operating system to be and how simple it was to hack. Who knows if HP will have the same philosophy. The developer community over there is fantastic, as well.
