So I have been thinking aboutt why the Webos phones never do great. We all know that Webos is the best phone OS ever. But the thing is it is really hard to market an OS. People don't give a damn about all the cool things it can do. What they want is to be able to pull their phone out and have at least one person say "HEY isn't that the new phone that can do..." The veer is the weakest attempt possible for this. Come on no one wants to be like Hey isn't that the tiniest phone EVER.
We all know how frustrating it is to watch these phones get announced that are at the top of the line when they are announced but there isn't anything that is GREAT about them. But then by the time they are released there are 4 different phones that exceed our beloved OS. For example take the pre3. I not saying its a bad phone. To be honest I'll will almost definitely get it if it comes to sprint. But when a random customer walks in wanting the latest and greatest in smartphones from sprint what are they going to pick. The pre3 with standout features like the latest version of webos and blazing fast 3g speeds (I can see the little description thing that they put under the phones now and it bores me imagining it) or the new bad *** Evo 3D that can record 3D video and has BLAZING fast 4g speeds and Android with its thousands and thousands of apps? Most people haven't even heard of Webos so that doesn't help us sell phones in the slightest. Don't get me wrong the pre3 IS bad ***. But the average customer doesn't give a crap about how fast the processor is or how much memory it has.
So I just wanted to see what the community could come up with as a feasible but totally awesome thing that HP could put into their next phone that would actually make it different. To start it off I will throw in my idea. They already do it with some of their laptops so why not throw it on a phone? The fingerprint scanner! It could be the safest way to unlock your phone unlike the android phones where all your friends know your pattern thing within 24 hours of making it. Then you could use it like they do on the laptops. Each finger could do something different like your middle finger calls your boss. You could open up multiple apps with the just a swipe of your finger and it would be so easy to market. So that's just my take what do you guys think would be a phone selling feature for HP's phones?
