Has anyone gone to one of the "meet your match" booths for WP8 and versed them with a webOS phone? If so, did you win?

I would imagine that webOS (2.2.4 atleast) would win on every front except maps maybe.

Microsoft: 88 percent of 'Meet Your Match' participants prefer Windows Phone | Windows Phone Central
I so want to do this...

Great Find.

The sticking point for webOS would probably be speed - webOS hardware is simply old and comparatively quite slow.

Now, put webOS on modern hardware...

I wanna see the Win Phone that will pocket like my Veer and has a physical QWERTY.

And that's only partly sarcasm as I know there is no such thing... But also partly serious because I would like to see a Win Phone with a physical QWERTY. No PKB is a deal breaker for me. I just can't give it up and be happy.

Same could be said for me. With my small-ish hands, anything larger than a Pre+/2 isn't comfortable, esp if there is a gesture area involved.

Once the oversized screen trend runs its course and somebody makes a decent phone for the ladies, i'll be the first guy to buy it.

I don't think that much have to do with Hardware(anymore) much when it comes to WebOS operating system, because the Palm TouchPad WebOS tablet had a capable/fast dual-core Snapdragon processor inside its frame and still WebOS 3.0 ran slow and sluggish forcing people to install patches to improve its speed . I'm thinking its more from the software side of WebOS that causing all of those problems.

The Pre 3 is pretty fast and the TP is only slow at default clock speed. I even made one iPhone ****** drool when he saw how fast the Pre 3 is.

The WP7 one vs the Pre (might have been a + or 2) the sticking point was the guy having all his tiles already setup for what he was telling the Pre user to go look for. In the world of cards and advanced gestures the Pre user should have been able to easily smoke the WP7.... then again the Pre user wasn't even using Just Type he was flipping thru his launcher looking for the apps he needed.
