The more the merrier!!
Still wish HP would keep putting out WebOS devices. Maybe they could incorporate WebOS elements into their version/skin of Android.
Amen brother. My first thought when I saw this thread.

I had that same thought. Maybe create a WebOS Launcher for Android, that would be great...having the best of both worlds.

If I remember correctly, Google bought quite a few patents related to WebOs. After playing around on ICS and JB I have seen some similarities pop up between Android and WebOs, but I don't know if that is just coincidence. The new "Recent Applications" menu of ICS and JB are similar to the cards view in WebOs. In previous versions of Android, "multitasking" was just being able to open the apps that you were using prior to your current one, where as now you can open close to the exact page you were using (similar to WebOs on opening what you were doing earlier). On GB they had a WebOs launcher, but it never worked very well and didn't get a lot of support.
"Wave Launcher" in the market, which is like WebOs https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...F1bmNoZXIiXQ..
Cards View is called "Itching Thumb": webOS like multitasking on ANDROID - Page 17 - xda-developers
I still enjoy playing around on my Pre+ and love the true multitasking capabilities it offers.
There might be newer stuff out now, but I haven't really looked in a while.
A $99 7" tablet would be fantastic. All I really want it for is reading some ebooks, so the hardware doesn't have to be that fantastic. Just so long as it's not stuttering out of the box, or likely to die in a year...
Of course, at $99, this would be pretty much the electronic world's disposable device... even though my wallet doesn't like that idea.
Ultimately, though... "we'll see." :)
They make good servers too.
