You know, guys, Pre3 is more than enough powerful, and it will be for few more months specs vise. But, to be successful, specs are not that important.
It could have 3Ghz CPU, 2GB ram, 64GB of storage, 1080p output, 4.3" screen, LTE, WIMAX, 12Mpix camera and $100 price tag and to fail.
No matter how fast CPU is, it could lag, OS could be unoptimized to support hardware specs. Also, OS optimization is something we expect from 2009, so there is big question could WebOS be fully optimized?
WebOS feature list is still thin and it's not growing by years passed. IOS and Android user can have more versatile experience with out-of-box devices than WebOS users, and not to mention their app stores.
Successful device is mix of attractive hardware, attractive design, great user experience regarding way it performs and acts on commands (and that is why I can't stand Jon anymore with his insisting on user experience in some esthetic and philosophical way), good feature list, good build quality and many other things
