Shocker! I've found other fine ex-amigans here, but sharing also a Psion past raises the bar! If I find anyopne which also has a MorphOS & Pegasos past, I'll eat my socks!

So... what hasn't been said? Apps basically, and I guess the gestures but that's tacit in the card interface that you need to be able to "close" them. That lists almost every main feature and why I will pick webOS until I can't anymore.

He mostly talking about touchpad, but one little feature I like on both phone and touchpad is the ability to delete whole words at a time.

.....webOS is one of the few current mobile operating systems that are actually a joy to use. Itís been hurt by HPís incompetent management, rather than any egregious faults of its own.

Great article that really highlights a lot of what I love about webOS. At this stage, all we're really missing is the app selection (some better hardware wouldn't hurt either, but the TP is good enough for the time being).

Just one thing that I didn't agree with though. Even though it is inconvenient to switch to the number keys on iOS, I do find typing on the iPad keyboard easier, and make less mistakes on it. Not sure if it's just my clumsy fingers or if others have had the same experience as well?

Nice. We've been beat up and left to trample for so long, it's nice to see an article like this. This time next year at MWC 2013, new Open webOS phones. You heard it hear first!!!
