    Ask 5 people around you if they know what is WebOS, and then think if the new hardware will make them try webOS. Also ask the same people what is android, and see if the know.
    If this helped you hit thanks.

    What's your point? HP bought Palm because webOS didn't get enough traction and HP thought the OS was superior and worthy of $1 billion plus cash. HP thinks they can do better, starting with the introduction of new products in the summer.

    Ask 5 people a year from now, that would be a better question.

    hp is about to start a big webos campain. They are starting with the grammys this weekend. They know what they need to do. Everyone needs to stop talking like hp is a kid in his basement making phones and computers. They obviously know how to sell stuff better than you. Soon when you buy a printer, pc, toaster, phone, whatever you will be looking for the webos logo on it as a feature just like you look for intel or wifi.

    I asked 4 people around me what IOS is and they said no. Ironic since 2 of them have iphones. I told them its the software their phone is running on and they called me a nerd told me to get off the computer and come out.

    You should ask them if they've seen that new AT&T DROID phone and see if they can differentiate between a DROID and an Android phone.....

    Since you don't even know the difference I can see how well that would go over.

    The At&t Atrix is not a droid.

    The Droid lineup is the Motorola lineup for Verizon only....this is all besides the point.


    I can ask 5 people all day long and the answer will be Android 90/100 times.

    Ask 5 people if they know what Android is....

    1 Say "Yes. It's an opperating system for phones and other mobile gadgets.

    3 Say "Isn't that some kind of phone."

    2 Say "Isn't that some scifi thing, like a robot?"


    I can't begin to count the number of people I've encountered who don't understand the difference between MS Windows and MS Office.

    Most Droid users probably dont actually know the maker of their phone...

    if palm had let all manufactures have the webOs operating system to use on their own hardware Droid wouldnt exist anymore,Motorola and HTC would have snatched it right up .....

    Because I'm in Australia, I can guarantee I could ask 50 people and no one will have heard of it.
    Palm m105 >> Zire 72SE >> AT&T Pre Plus >> Pre 2 (cracked)>>HP Veer/Pre 2>>Touchpad>>Pre 3...and I'm only 17 years old! (My own savings)

    What is the point of asking people about their knowledge of webOS?

    Imagine this scenario ...
    - Everyone in the world is familiar with webOS software and phones
    - Everyone knows that webOS devices have been a spectacular failure
    - Everyone associates webOS products with crappy hardware

    Under those circumstances, would HP have wanted to acquire webOS? Would they have purchased Palm? I don't think so. I believe the fact that webOS was such a failure actually made webOS more appealing to HP, and at the same time made Palm less valuable and allowed HP to purchase webOS (Palm) at a cheaper price.
