I was fairly disappointed with the android review of WebOS. He seems to point out a lot of things he doesnt like about WebOS, then just generealizes that Android is better at those things.
1) He says the keyboard is terrible. Well, for starters--I have heard near 100% dislike for the Droid's keyboard. In fact, I used my buddies while we were playing poker the other night. It seems like they didnt have anyone actually test out their keyboard design. It is IMPOSSIBLE to type with one hand. Extremely annoying on a mobile phone. Also, I have had the Pre since launch and it never bothered me. He must have fat fingers. I can see how it would be difficult with fat fingers.
winner - Pre.
2) He actually says the Pre is comparable to the G1 in the final paragraph. talk about really leaving your readers with a bad impression. The G1 is barely even a smartphone. That is a joke. Come down off your high horse. The Pre is comparable to your current flagship device, the Droid. And ahead in many places.
3) He points out that the Pre is slow. Again, has anyone here actually used a Droid? The thing is slow as mollasses. I tried loading a youtube video on the Droid, and it took about 30 sec. The user interface might be snappier, but this guy needs to patch up his Pre with what I'm using, because mine is much snappier than that Droid.
4) This is my favorite example his poor review. He stresses that the lack of battery life on the Pre would be a deal-killer for him, making it nothing more than a "paper weight." Well, fortuitous reviewer, at that poker game the other night--ya, that one where my budddy had the Droid out---well, he also had his charger with him too. He commented on how he has to carry his charger everywhere with him now. I have to charge often as well, but I dont want to be hypocrytical like you. At least I can do it in style, wirelessly.
Me thinks he played with WebOS for a few days and has seen the light. He's afraid more android users will as well. Thats ok though, you cant stifle innovation Chris. I wouldnt want to let all those users know how good it is if I had a website over there either.
