You might perfectly illustrate why webOS has this enormous challenge in front of it. It started with J Rubenstein not wanting to use competitors' products - he just didn't *get* what other products could do, and tried to sell his products' features as wildly different when for the most part they weren't.

Sure there are a few things iOS does better, that webOS does better, that Android does better. But for 90% of users out there, most of the differences just come down to what one is used to, like the old Win/Mac wars.
You can write an email on an iOS device, and leave it - close it - "toggle away from" whichever nomenclature you want to glom on to - and come back to it right where you left off. Period.**
People in here say that you can't, all the time. It does the platform no respect and just makes the users look uniformed.
And the guy who is called on to make assessments in his job about this kind of thing? Heck, that sort of carelessness can get someone fired where I work. It got JR fired.
** edited to add, and you can do it with a click (or if you have iOS5 enabled, a swipe). Its just not a big set of steps.
