    I'm sure Sprint got trolled. Way more Sprint customers own Androids than webOS devices.

    Android 38%
    palm 59%
    Blackberry 1%
    Windows 2%

    I looked at one once, and figured I'd need to start chewing toothpicks just so I'd have something to hit the right key with, instead of 4 or 5 at a time.

    I voted last night and moved Android up to 39%. I felt special.

    Sprint will go with Android regardless. Too big an OS not to go with.

    Valid statement. However, with Sprint's precarious financial situation and relatively low market share, I'm not sure they can afford to keep risking money on WebOS.

    They won't have to risk much for future WebOS. WebOS needs carriers more than the carriers need their phones so Sprint and others won't have to invest much, if anything, into future WebOS products.

    I'm sure HP understood that when they absorbed them, but I think the absorption was more about getting an OS that was already developed than to try to create another one or be at the continuous mercy of Google or MSFT operating systems.

    If HP was smart, they'd really make WebOS more about an unparralled PDA/PIM + smartphone product. I still don't think there is a truly outstanding phone that does that. I'm also not convinced the best solution will ever come from a third-party app.

    Just voted. Android was at 39% and still is after my vote.

    Maybe maybe not.. Android is a force for sure, but if Webos puts out a a few nice devices it has a chance. Just like Verizon put Android on the map, Sprint could do the same thing for HP if they step their game up

    If you ask me they need to recall all Palm Pre's and Pixi's because those are 2 of the worst phones ever.

    WebOS might be good, but it's also had so many hiccups that it's not likely to ever become a true, major player - at least not any time soon. If MSFT hadn't put WP7 into play, there may have been a better opportunity.

    Also, it's about the apps. WebOS just doesn't have the app size or development community needed to overwhelm itself back into buyer's minds.

    I don't see iOS coming to Sprint so didn't factor it into my comments. I don't see iOS on Sprint when it's clear that there will be more buyers in the LTE arena. Unless Sprint jumped into that fray, I don't see iOS on Sprint at all.
