It’s been a long, dark night for webOS.
It started out promising …
… but the hardware wasn’t there and even webOS wasn’t really finished (remember how Sprint pushed out a webOS update the day the phone went on sale?).
The Pre had too small a screen for me, too small a keyboard, and I didn’t trust that slider.
The Pixi sounded good but in person it did nothing for me.
Now webOS is at a crossroads.
Since only it can be an end-to-end experience like Apple’s iOS, it has a real shot gaining some ground against the fractured and confusing world of Android OS.
But it needs a killer phone …
… something very special …
… and it needs to nail the tablet hardware.
Tomorrow I don’t want to watch HP/Palm’s big series of announcements and say …
… it’s nice but
… if only
I want HP/Palm to come out ready to go to war.
