    What's up with that?

    This isn't the first time the big Goog has shown love to Apple and an inexplicable glaring omission regarding the Pre. I'm not really sure why they're feel obliged to specify only Android and iPhone when those pages are obviously optimized for any large touchscreen Webkit-based type phone.

    Anybody use Google books on the Pre?

    Google is probably trying to protect Android. That's why we will probably never see an official Google voice app for the Pre.

    Actually, I'm thinking that Google is trying to protect ChromeOS from WebOS...

    Usually their updates work for all three.

    To be fair, Google is actually the best right now about actually detecting the Pre and giving us nice mobile interfaces. Google Reader works, Google News works, etc. Most other websites on the internet do not detect the WebOS at all and we are given dumbphone interfaces. I think the Google Books team just made a slip up. They should fix it soon.

    WebOS has an extremely small market share right now and is not common to test against for web apps. Give it another six months and WebOS will be detected and given the enhanced interfaces just like Android and iPhone.
