    I use WebOS all day at work as the Splashtop app works better. android version is to laggy. I use CM9 for play, as it has the iRealbook app and I can hook up a Bluetooth pedal to turn pages, functions that are not available on WebOS. I would rather have WebOS with the functionality of Android and iOS, but this is a good compromise. (I leave my iPad at home...)

    Not the native ICS mail app. That blows. What I prefer is the GMail app. And all my email is Gmail based, so I can just use that.

    Chrome for Android is nice, seamless sync of bookmarks with desktop version. Never liked the webOS browser. At this point, I can't imagine what would make me want to boot into webOS ever again.

    I think that's a good summary - webos for work, Android for play

    I dont know what version of splashtop you're using, but in -every- experience I've had with it the android app is remarkably and demonstratably better. More responsive and faster updating of the screen, no tearing, etc. Put a stopwatch on your main PC and watch it over splashtop, the webOS version is clearly a second or so slower than android, and that makes a big difference when you're using it.

    I have the iPhone version, and it's also a bit faster, although due to the smaller screen, not as nice to use, I just don't feel like buying the Android version since I already have the webOS and iOS ones.

    However, my desire to leave my computer on to use Netflix has fallen dramatically, and I haven't rebooted into webOS in nearly a week...I still love webOS in theory, but ICS just offers a lot more ATM..

    WebOS browser sucks SO BAD, Im often tempted to toss my TP at a wall. I plan to convert this weekend. Either that, or get an iPad.

    I just can't get over how much the browser has degenerated over time.

    I just converted last week.

    Wow. It's usable again. The browser is just so much faster all around. I won't ever go back to webOS at this point. The performance on ICS is there, the developer support is there, a future for the platform is there.
