    K so if you read the Q&A it's pretty clear the seller doesn't like Android much... But with all this talk of Android coming to the TouchPad... Why not WebOS onto our Epics?

    Maybe even a launcher.. that just looked and acted like WebOS with the multi-tasking. Like ItchingThumb on steroids.

    Yeah man, I had the pre for over a year, and numerous treo models before that. I like palm, is what I'm saying.

    But I don't understand this attitude that webos is vastly superior to android. They pretty much do the same thing, just with different UIs. Does it really matter? I mean... "longpress home -->click app". Vs. "Press center button --> swish through cards to find right one --> click it".... same damn thing lol.

    Factor in the unoptimized mess that that was the new Enyo framework of webos, and the lack of developer interest in the platform even before HP announced it was now abandonware... who would WANT to change from an equally powerful, better-optimized (relatively speaking), robustly dev-supported platform, back to that?

    Maybe a launcher that more closely mimics webos is in order (I've never tried itching thumbs). But taking an epic (powerful hardware), with android and the incredible dev support that brings (to leverage the potential of that hardware), and putting webos on it instead.... it doesn't strike me as an improvement. It strikes me as crippling!

    Excuse me, but now that HP is concentrating more on business servers- isn't WebOS mainly dead or at least on standby for now?

    BTW- is this auction for real? It sounds more like someone posted the auction as a joke because they couldn't get in on the Touchpad firesale. Bidding is at $47 for a lame drawning...

    because in my opinion pre hardware sucks i had the palm pre. why not just have everyone get rid of broadband and go back to apple os.android is okay compared to any other phone os but web os would be great on the good hardware and app market android enjoys
