Yeah... I dunno, man. I've been a Palm guy for many years, going back to the Treo 300, all the way through the Pre. I jumped to an Epic 4G a couple months ago.

I like WebOS, but to me, Android is every bit as good - better when you factor in the incredible number of apps, and choices of good hardware platforms, neither of which we had (or will have anytime soon) on WebOS.
I'll admit I'm a "function over form" guy. Maybe there's some little thrill some people get about swishing cards around, etc., but for me, it's all about usability. What can I do with the device, and how quickly can I do it? Guys, it doesn't take any longer to open apps, switch between open apps, or close apps, on android. No, you don't get to play with cards, but who gives a damn? I can make my device do what I need it to do, every bit as quickly as the Pre. When you factor in that I now have a device that can do a lot MORE than the Pre (or even the Pre3/touchpad, considering the lack of WebOS apps)... android wins hands-down for me.
I understand some people fall for an OS experience and never leave. That accounts for a lot of Apple's long-time fans. We all choose which platform we like better, so if you genuinely like WebOS, and genuinely don't like Android as much, so be it. But if you're like me, just a guy who wants to make his device do as much as possible as fast as possible, and you're not married to one OS for life... it seems to me you're wasting time sticking with WebOS. I sure feel like I wasted the last few months with the Pre, trying to decide whether to jump or not!
