    I agree with OP.

    Speed/ fluidity, PERIOD.

    Makes, would make a HUGE difference. I don't care how spoiled we have become, it's an extremely competitive market out there.

    Focus on speed and blow everyone away!

Kind of a lot to ask for for a 1.x build imho
    This is completely wrong.

    Palm is lazy, they don't want to do things the right way. They want to do things the fast way . . . mostly because they have to. We will never see a GUI as snappy and smooth as iPhones.

    Remember your PC can run multiple 3D applications at the same time - the GPU is not locked to a single app (unless you run a really old/awful operating system)

    Yeah I was wondering this myself. If flash is using the GPU within the GUI (Browser), then they can't be far off from accelerating the entire GUI.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    I suspect that WebOS will never be as fast as iPhone - it is written using HTML, CSS, Javascript - all which have to be heavily interpreted - iPhone apps are written natively in C - you just cannot compare the two.

    I suppose it's possible that they could optimize the web based stuff sooo much (and add some more powerful hardware) that is became fast enough that you wouldn't notice the difference, but that is a ways off and it really makes me question if palm made the right decision with WebOS.
