I love my palm pre's web os but honestly the phone sucks and breaks like no tomorrow....the apps are such wanna-be apps its not even funny I look at android apps and iphone apps...the pre cant even compare. Sad outcome for the phone and I know that sprint and verizon can barely give the phone away. I dont see it being any more successful on at&t

HP bought Palm and using WebOS in HP slate and smartphones was wrong and unpopular with a few thousands apps. HP should using Android OS on slate and smartphones are popular and 30,000 apps and people loving it. I will not buy Palm or WebOS smartphone.

Whoops, another SMARTPHONE on AT&T's network that will just lead to the inevitable customer's choice of purchasing an IPHONE.
