    I just saw that WP7 has caught webOS according to web traffic:
    WP7 neck and neck with webOS; more gains on the way? | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    My question is, could the iphone-spoof patch make webOS devices show up as iphones instead and thus lower webOS numbers? I think alot of us use that patch don't we?

    i dont have the spoof because i think its the wrong way of achieving anything and technically the mobile safaris of the two devices cannot be different more expect for them both being safaris.

    i doubt that these market share numbers are reflections of website access statistics.

    awhile back this was discussed and I recall the answer was that it doesn't impact those statistics. I will try to find the thread.

    the thing I find interesting is that microsoft spent several hundred million to get WP7 up to webOS, and HP has done almost nothing in the last 9 months. ii hope that if/when HP starts promoting/advertising (and the new stuff is actually available) they will be able to accompliush much more than wp7 has.

    Web traffic is a sticky way of determining total usage. There are a lot of users who spend most of their time with apps that pull the same info that going to a website would get them.

    Either way, I agree with my Mod brother. It is amazing that WP7 has only just now caught up with webOS despite no real movement from HP. In other words, this news is not concerning.

    As to the spoof patch, it does not affect the above survey. The spoof puts a little code that the site reads to render a mobile version of the site. On my website, after testing, it absolutely does not register as mobile Safari.

    Are we forgetting that webos has been on the market for almost 3 years now, while WP7 has only been around for a year at best?

    In that one year it has caught and surpassed webos app count and market share.

    And with a major patch on the horizon it's only going to get better for MS and worse for HP.

    No one is saying that it isn't remarkable that WP7 has, at least in the less than exact science sort of way, passed webOS. It's that despite the fact that webOS has been underground since early 2010, it is still in a perfect position to grow.

    Agree webos has a lot of room to grow but the longer HP takes to get things rolling the harder it is going to be to move up.

    That's the point for sure.... I keep saying when HP starts, but eventually you run out of time to start...
