WebOS was a monster. Designed by former Apple engineer John Rubenstein, WebOS was highly acclaimed as the ultimate UI experience. The layout was stunning. However, the shortcoming of shoddy harware killed off what should've been the most adopted platform for mobile computation and user adaptation.

HP had the greatest chance of pushing the envelope for such an easy yet powerful OS. HP threw it away just because it was more interested in the patents that Palm owned.

You really needed to experience WebOS to truly admire the awesomeness it had to offer.

But the only truly U.S. American device listed is the Motorola, being designed, manufactured and shipped from the U.S. (for now)

We'll have to deal with American flag leggings today. Back on topic, these smartphones represent American pride. The home of innovation ;)

Apple is known as a product designer brand

Others provide excellent value for money and features

Macbook stole the design and keyboard layouts from Sony

Even Steve blwjob admitted he was a big Sony admirer.

You don't really know what you're talking about do you? Your unrelenting hate for anything America/Apple blinds you to the point where you go off shooting in the dark, that said I'm sorry but I can't take you seriously. I'm not here for an argument. Today is independence day and I have a lot to do.

I'm not hating on any American companies

I dislike what and how the company operates

I'm not arguing, but having a discussion with you. I will know something that that you won't what I know. It's a discussion topic site, to learn and be knowledgeable.

We don't do "discussions" here. That's what FORUMS are for, and no there are no forums here (PA). That probably explains why you always spam the comment section. Find a good forum out there and keep it minimal here.

Nintendo is dying?? 3DS is the best selling console right now, Wii U has tons of amazing games coming and sales are going up, and on top of that Nintendo has tons of cash in the bank for bad times. They are anything but dying...

Okay maybe 'dying' might be a little exaggerated cuz Nintendo's financials are not exactly in dire straits but make no mistake the Wii U was a huge flop and the 3DS is selling very well. They'll have to live off of that and the Wii was such a l success the Wii U never got be

Yeah Wii U will never be very successful. But it still has a chance to do okay with the upcoming games.

No that was a while ago, the most recent quarter was anything but a good one for iPhone in Japan. Sony sold of Vaio, but their consoles and phones are doing pretty well seeing as how they just upped their forecast for the year. Also, nintendo might be dying home console wise, but they still print money from their mobile offering and will probably learn and rebound in a few years if history has taught anything. Them Japanese don't quit, they just don't quit.

Are any of these actually made in America or just designed? Companies are realizing people are understanding why their are no jobs because nothing is made in American. So they are advertising designed in america.........apple. if you love America stop buying apple products. Stop shopping at Walmart and stop using Amazon.

Made by American countries but manufactured overseas. This makes so much sense.

Apple sells stuff made from foreign components and assembled overseas. They then send the bulk of their profits overseas to avoid US taxes. The are as American as H1B workers.

'ASSEMBLED IN AMERICA' doesn't mean that the phones are made by Americans. Every single internal is made by chinese and only assembly takes place at american plants. Yet they call it american. LOL!
