    It's been about 4 months since I retired my Pre Minus (upgraded to GS2) and my TP had been collecting dust for about the same time...if not longer.

    Recently I heard through the work grapevine that there's a possibility of big brother activities at work, so just to be on the safe side, I decided to wipe the dust off on my TP and bring it into work, and just use the free wif in our bldg.

    After about 3 days I suddenly realized why I stuck it out as long as I did with WebOS (5/09-12/11).

    The **** just rocks!!

    More specifically the multitasking. I've been keeping FB, USA Today, Feedreader, calendar, email and few websites open all day - shuffling through all those apps is such a breeze...soo damm easy! I love my GS2...the massive screen, the apps, the speed, but the one thing I do miss is multitasking....which absolutely SUCKS (even ICS multitasking) on Android. You can keep things open but navigating to those open apps is such a *****!

    Soo glad I never got rid of my TP....my $99 TP that is = )

    It's good to see that you have begun to appreciate all over again, all the nicest things of what WebOS used to be back when it got released by Palm in '09. The multitasking feature its the greatest things of WebOS in my opinion which the other company has tried to replicate but it doesn't come to it(except for Blackberry). For me the stacking cards of WebOS makes things a lot easier to do, when users are dealing with tons of app cards open.

    However, that doesn't mean that its completely perfect and also its have come to the point on a need of a extreme makeover. I would like that HP could bring a decent update to WebOS from 3.0.5 to 4.0, that will bring gestures to the OS making things easier to multitask when stacking-up cards together. Or at least bring some sort of Mission control/expose like Mac OS X to the easy to use-feature of multitasking on the WebOS.

    But in everything else, WebOS is a total delight to when it comes to some sort of functionality when using it to browse the web and among others things. Just wished that it could have more app choices in the HP catalog that could really raise the bar on what WebOS can do.

    Currently looking for a touchpad to get back into the webos game

    No dice, I called every best buy within 50 miles.

    But I might be picking up a 32gb touchpad tomorrow from a craigslist seller for $210 with a folio case and touchstone included.

    Don't expect to get one for $150. But there are some on Amazon.

    Also available from Newegg (refurbished), for $240 and $215 for the 32GB and 16GB models respectively.

    Not bad, considering that they include a somewhat nice slip case. Plus, Newegg's RMA policy has always been fantastic.

    I tried coming back, I've been using Android 4.0 ice cream sandwich on my touchpad ... the browser in webos is for me slow. Awkward and sketchy . I would hope they update the browser. But, for now. Writing this from my HP touhpad running ics 4.0

    I've had an Ipad2, I have a SG2 as well, and a touchpad. I still like the TP better than all of them. Just a breath of fresh air to use and so elegant. To me android is so clunky and difficult to use.. even searching isn't as integrated as webOS. Email is also a million times better on WebOS. As is texting. I like the screen and number of apps and speed of my SG2 but i'd rather have those features on webOS.

    running ICS alpha 2 on a 64GB TP. I've got one word for Android, clunky. I don't see why developers don't write for webOS, there's a lot of free apps in Android, with advertising! Why couldn't the same developers write those same apps with ads for webOS? Can someone explain that to me?

    its so hard to get around Android, no smooth way to get around at all. Yeah, a plethora of apps, but webOS has spoiled me because it makes so much more sense to multitask and smoothly open and close apps.

    In my opinion, Android has along way to go before it ever behaves like webOS. It really sucks. Can't wait to see what can be done with Open webOS.

    Welcome back. Its nice to read the enthusiasm from your fresh perspective, giving us all a chance to appreciate what we have received even less than a year ago from the hard work and ingenuity of the Palm staff.

    Packing my Pres, Veers and Touchpad for jury duty tomorrow....

    Have to say multitasking on the phone is so good I can't use can't use any other phone. But I am not that much in love with the touchpad version of webOS

    Has anyone noticed that on the phone stacks expand and contract so one can easily tell what's in the stack while the touchpad it expands very little if at all. Or is it just me

    You saying you don't use a webOS phone now? Why not a frankenpre on sprint. To me right now it is still better than anything else I have tried

    No more supported ad framework on webOS, which, IMO, is a good thing.

    WebOS lacks apps that i need to use a lot. If webOS had the same apps as iOS or Android I would have never switched. But i need apps for work and WebOS does not have them unfortunately.

    Not true at all.

    Also, I've noticed that some of the ad networks from other apps have started lighting up again recently, like the weather app..
