August 2011: I ordered. HP canceled any new webOS hardware. My phone arrived. webOS has many innovative features and has a community capable of developing this open system to even greater heights. I hope to see it continue as an option for the discerning mobile device user.
On the third day of webOS-mas, My true love gave to me, Three Touchstone Chargers, Two printing methods, And webOS quick install.
Ah! The Touchstone! Wireless charging done right, using magnets to position. Exhibition mode – still somewhat under explored, but perfect to make a slideshow of all your Christmas cards! There is the original phone ‘hockey puck’, the Touchpad version and if you have the money and desire, the unreleased Touchstone 2 with bluetooth & audio line-out that can rarely be found on auction sites.
A lot of the buzz this year has been around the Application Compatibility Layer for the Touchpad which enables Android apps to run under webOS. It is hopefully close to official release and there is a possibility that if it is successful, the Pre3 may be its next destination. But until then, let’s say hello to our friends in the Russian Federation – particulary Nikolay Nizov. Would you like Android in a card on your Pre3?
