    web os is very intuitive except when someone asks to use my phone, but they dont know how to use all the gestures....takes a whole 5 mins just to teach them...Could this be a theme in Verizon ans Sprint stores

    I think gesture area is one of the cooliest features about this phone. I could care less if someone else using my phone can't figure it out. But if you own it,not that hard to learn. Man you could teach a monkey how to use the gesture area.,,lol every device out there has a learning curve

    It took me a few minutes to learn how the Gesture Area worked. Once I mastered it, I can't imagine having a phone without it. It makes the simple things just so much more fluent and elegant. I wouldn't want to find and tap a button to go 'back' or 'return to card view'. A simple flick of my thumb is all it takes...

    I mentioned this before in a post I made. People at my school are really confused by the gesture area, making them frustrated, and not liking the phone.

    of course its difficult if u have never seen the phone in action and its not like other phones on the market have gesture areas

    Just by teaching someone about it will make them understand it

    The Gesture Area is to WebOS as a mouse is to a computer OS. How long did it take you to learn how a mouse works on a computer? Tell that to someone that gives an odd look and let them know that they need to move away from the teletype machine.
    Oh the memories.

    The original poster did have a point:

    While the mouse is easier than using the keyboard to navigate a computer, in 1987 I am sure a LOT of people said "wow this mouse thing is HARD to learn, im just going to stick to a keyboard and DOS, forget this GUI thing"

    People hate change. Nerds like us dont, but a LOT of people hate change and are afraid of technology.

    So, to have to learn something new even if it means a better experience even after 5 minutes of learning, many people won't.

    I do think it is a legitamite concern and think that its why Palm needs more of an introduction to the Pre at Kiosks etc.

    Or maybe a TV ad that actually shows someone using the freaking phone.
