    Where did webOS go wrong? | Tecca

    When the Palm Pre smartphone first introduced us to the webOS operating system in June of 2009, many felt that it had a bright future ahead of it. Apple's iPhone was selling hand over fist, and Google's Android platform was just getting its legs under it, but Palm's take on the mobile computing scene was still met with plenty of enthusiasm. Fast forward to yesterday, August 18, 2011, when HP officially killed production of the entire line of webOS devices. It's plain to see that the mobile scene is a fickle one.

    A new option for smartphone diehards
    WebOS promised to offer smartphone users a new mobile experience. It attempted to offer the simplicity of iOS large icons and an always-there dock with a closely integrated web experience full of social networking and media features. Its default applications were, for the most part, well designed, and its eventual support of Flash made it more media friendly than the iPhone.

    Google-Motorola : Microsoft-Nokia : Palm-HP

    By now you would have already read about the Google offer to buy Motorola Mobility division. You would have read about why this is the biggest mistake Google has ever made. You also would have read about why this is the most brilliant move made by Google.

    You would have been told why this is the best thing to have happened to Android and also why this is the worst thing to have happened to Android.

    So, there is no agreement on the possible impact of this deal except for one point this is a BIG deal and a Game Changer.

    webOS is an elegant mobile OS that found itself in the hands of incompetent hardware manufacturers.

    webOS never went wrong. Its custodians did.

    webOS was ahead of it's time in a world fulled by Apple and Android-rage. Not even Windows Phone 7 stands a chance.

    My father, who is an excellent carpenter, recently told me: "No one cares about quality anymore" (as a smile slowly runs away from his face).
