WebOS has a lot going for it when you put it up against the closest competitors, the iPhone and Google’s Android.  The major area it falls behind is in the tiny App Catalog of which pales in comparison.  After its first half a year or so in service there are now 1000 apps for download.  This number is not too bad when you consider the first gen. iPhone and how long it took to get any applications on it at all.  As time goes on the new Palm handsets get recognition from those involved in technology or up on the latest gadget, but they have yet to go totally mainstream.  Hopefully all of this changes soon when Palm moves its devices onto Verizon and a larger market has access to WebOS.  So as we start this new year we wish Palm the best of luck and hope Apple gets some serious competition other than Android.
