    Apps fuel a Smartphone.

    If you just want to phone and text, you don't need a smartphone. The age-old nokias of the late 90s could even do calender and some rudimentary PIM.

    I stick to it: it's the apps that fuel a smartphone, like petrol fuels cars.
    If you don't need apps, you don't need a smartphone and can go for something cheap.
    If you don't want to use fuel you can switch to a bicycle and drive much cheaper (albeit not that far).

    Easy enough to understand?

    Can you drive a car without fuel? Nope
    Can you use a webOS phone without apps? Yep

    Car and phone analogy don't work.
    Car-->fuel phone-->battery :O not apps

    Not really. The current AmigaOS 4.x uses swap, just like other modern OS's. Plus the Ramdisk only grows when you put stuff in it.

    If you can't transpose in an analogy, I won't be able to explain this to you.

    But whatever, even so your analogy is wrong a well. According to your very tight logic, the right comparison would be
    Car -> Battery, Phone->Battery
    Car -> Fuel, Phone -> Charger

    But this is in a very thight and unflexible way of thinking, where modelling is not part of thinking.

    If a phone is a car, apps are roads...

    You can have a fast car, but if the speed limits and access to roads is not favorable, you are less likely to enjoy the car's full potential...

    Of you can just break the speed limit (in webOS' case overclocking)

    I've already moved on. The question for me now is: time to move back (again)? I switched to a Galaxy Note 2 and switched back to my Pre3. Broke my Pre3 so had to go back to the Android. Now I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on another Pre3 purchase.

    I considered BB10, but I'm afraid they may be headed down the same path as Palm. I hope not.

    I considered BB10, as well, but it's pretty obvious where they are heading...

    You could say that, but I don't know if email, decent web browsing, ease-of-use (don't like the UX on dumbphones) don't really stack up IMHO/in my experience.

    People free to move on to something bigger, newer, faster if they like. But to me it's what does the things I do the most the best, and for me thats a webos phone.

    luckily for cars there is more than 1 type of fuel, petrol, diesel, electric, hydrogen, etc etc etc, soem of those fuels are more abundant than others, but hey as long as you have "enough" fuel to keep you going then all those cars still get you from A to B well enough.

    btw irl im a diesel car kinda person and apps wise, i have enough of what i need on webOS. I still have access to the other apps but i just dont really need many of them beyond 1-2 which are typically for entertainment rather than typical "phone" stuff.

    lots of interesting analogy's flying around here.

    Don't go that way. Everyone has high hopes for BB (unlike webOS after the Pre-/Pre+).

    You don't need a battery to drive a car, unless you have an EV

    This analogy is better.
    So if you have android apps on existing webos devices, you still have old and laggy hardware.

    Car analogy: You have great roads, but stuck with a old lame car.

    So i would prefer an great car, maybe a suv so i can drive where are no roads

    I bought a Playbook this spring, in hope of an update to bb10. But now there never will be an update. So in my opinion bb is the same as HP. They are no reliable partner. Now i use a nexus4, and my hopes are on webos-ports and jolla.
