Thanks folks.Maybe if I give you a little background,you can guide me a bit.
The two touchpads are the $99 wifi variety,back when they were pretty much giveaways.I'm on construction sites all day,and need a small pocket sized phone to slip in and out of pockets easily,not theses waffle-sized phones that seems to be the trend.I couple this with the touchpad to web-surf with wifi for work-related things,I am in areas that are usually covered with free public wifi.
I don't keep contacts or personal info in it,I keep that on other devices.It is exclusively a web surfer,probably nothing more.I don't think I have ever loaded an app on it other than the native equipped.
I have never had any feelings for the Palm OS.Never played with it.But this tablet as a web surfer has never been great and is getting worse.Some sites since day one have flat-out not worked on the touchpad,and the list gets longer everyday.I don't know if it is WebOS or the browser,but it seems that it is about half of the sites don't function properly,or not at all. I really don't want to spend much time fiddling with it and investing time.My tech ability is not that good,the only claims that I can make is that I have rooted the last 4 Android phones I have had,even that I consider painful.
What is the best route to get this tablet to function as a decent web surfer for the long term? Should I consider going to Android? I don't want to be constantly fighting this device or watching its ability for the limited things I do with it go downhill further.
