OK, I acknowledge being remiss by not subscribing to pivotCE. I'll take care of that, pronto.

Those of you who know me knew I had quite a fancy for the GO device. I was hoping it would become the first "phablet" device to catch on with the public. SInce ACL crashed and burned (yes I know it's functional, hahahah is that all you expected or wanted out of it?) I gradually moved over to the Android platform (dirty word around here still?) and to Samsung (Eeeee gads - another dirty word!) 7" tablet devices. The European models have GSM voice calling and connectivity up to HSDPA+ enabled so they are really true "Phablets".
The Galaxy Tab 4 7" LTE (SM-T235) is pretty much the device I was one day hoping the TP GO would eventually become. Problem with these devices is that Samsung tries even harder than HP did to lock things down. Even when the device is rooted they make it difficult if not impossible to make configuration changes from service menus. All I can say is thank goodness for the CWM folks and the ROMS they create. They're what makes living in the Android jungle somewhat bearable.
Besides frustrations with attempting to break through Samsung's Knox security in order to customize my device, the other thing that's driven me to check back in on webOS is the LG Smart watch announcement. Everyone here needs to go out and buy one of these baby's! Decent sales figures, even if they are not through the roof will go a long way towards spurring LG to bring webOS mobile devices back on a grand scale.
Yes, I know, its become way too late for webOS wet dreams, but fact is, they do still remain out there, even if stashed in out of the way archives ..... or maybe close by, on your wrist or TV ......
