    it would have been nice if this author would have used the OS instead of writing after reading other articles. Go sound off and represent for your favorite OS!

    That wasn't a "bad WebOS review" - it wasn't a review at all. The author wasn't trashing WebOS, but was responding to Palm's business decisions.

    Not every article that isn't 100% positive deserves scorn. Palm is indeed struggling, despite the fact that we love our Pre.

    Give me a break, one of the first comments is in regards to reviews of it being an "Iphone killer", Palm didn't brand the phone that way, it was other columnists and everyday critics.

    If you're going to write a 10 ways any company can make a comeback be more specific with suggestions. Just saying Palm needs to go back to the drawing board on the Pre with "a revision that reflects the current design requirements consumers have." isn't very specific 2. "Work on WebOS" They are working on the OS, and as far as most of the people that have bought it love the OS, it's not clunky like Android, and not as limiting as Iphone. 3. App store: they brought up a good point in not being able to make cross-platform apps, but ask why you'd want to develop for it... profit margin is higher per download. They also don't talk about the development changes Palm's made to dev for the phone.

    They make other good points from a company standpoint, but when it came to commenting on the OS, it came off like they've never used any of the phones.

    BTW, there was a great sister article attached to it: Has webOS 1.4 won me over to the new Palm Pre Plus? | Smartphones and Cell Phones | ZDNet.com

    coming from someone that used the phone side by side w/ Android, and Iphone OS and make better points in regards to most everything mentioned in the other article.

    Thanks for the reply, Bujin!

    Well, to be fair: around the time of Pre’s launch, Roger McNamee of Elevation Partners (Palm's major investor) said “You know the beautiful thing: June 29, 2009, is the two-year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone. Not one of those people will still be using an iPhone a month later.” So, yes, they set the bar that high.
