If HP and Palm wanted to make a splash back into the smartphone game, the Veer was not the device to do it with. In fact, it might have been a smarter move to wait on the release of the Pre 3 and TouchPad to reintroduce webOS to the world. As it stands now, the Veer has taken the remaining embers of excitement I had about the operating system and its devices and all but extinguished them.
As if that’s not bad enough, I find this bit to be even worse. No, in fact, I find it horrifying:
In fact, Jon [Rubinstein] told me on the Engadget Show that he was using the Veer as his main device (not the bigger, more powerful Pre 3 or even the semi-new Pre 2).
If that’s to be believed, the man who is in overall charge of webOS has no taste, no sense of quality, and webOS is utterly doomed.
