Something interesting to come out of the whole Nokia/MS debacle.

Posted 02-12-2011 at 04:23 PM by rich_c

I've noticed a marked increase in interest in HP/Palm's Web OS devices. As a current Nokia N900 user, I've been re-evaluating what might one day replace it when the community support runs dry or I need a replacement for any other reason. I'd been looking at Palm devices due to all the interest expressed. It's now very high on my list of likely replacements due to this piece of news! Based on my experience of the community support for the N900/Maemo, if WebOS has, what appears to be, an even stronger community with decent backing from the mothership then I'll have some of that please!

    The web OS platform was functionally backwards from everything out there. But if you are used to Nokias, then you should have no problem haha. It's nice to see that the WebOS platform isn't dead yet.

    I'm just sad to see J2ME, Brew, and Brew MP all go away because of smart phones. Well Brew MP isn't quite dead, but I don't think anything useful is going to be made for it. Also, lets see where Samsung's bada platform goes haha.

    I hope that the market doesn't become the big three iOS, Win7, Android... On the other hand, it's amusing to see the big 3 in the Home Computer market win out on the mobile device market.
