    Thumbs up Making the case: Nothing better than webOS for heavy multitasking

    I ran across this article (rather long) that I think makes the case for why WebOS is the best mobile OS out there.

    I Traded My Nexus One for a Palm Pre 2 and I’m Not Going Back

    I did for many the impossible. Two weeks ago I traded my top of the line Nexus One, the super smart phone released by Google through Taiwanese manufacturer HTC for the Palm Pre 2 released by Hewlett Packard (HP). And guess what? I have never been so productive with a smartphone and I’ve played with the best smartphones the world has to offer from Apple to Google....
    That said, most people don't do enough multitasking to appreciate the advantages.

    Yeah, I've been reading up on it too, and it generally gets really great marks from people. I like it a lot, but as you said, appreciating how well it multi-tasks is kind of a "power-use" aspect that the majority won't experience.

    I had a short intro to WebOS with the Pixi, and liked the OS and other Palm touches so much I'm going further and getting a Pre Plus! Should arrive in a day or so. Pretty impressive phone, but my usage is non-critical, as I'm doing PAYGO on PPC. But you've gotta occasionally feed the addiction, you know what I mean? I've had the lid on it for a while and now it's coming out.
