All I want for Christmas (for webOS)

Dear Santa,

I know, I know, late again this year. I know you’re busy, but I’ve been kind of busy too. Okay, I’ve been procrastinating, waiting for any hints as to what I might get for Christmas, but things have been awfully quiet around here. It seems like we’re in need of another “Christmas miracle” here in webOS land, and I’m pretty sure that’s your area of expertise.

I’ve tried to be a good blogger this year, but I can’t say that everything’s gone exactly as we planned. Things are looking up right now, kind of... but it seems nothing’s going to happen for a while here. Anyway, I’m sending this to you, hoping that you get it before taking off for the night (literally). I know it seems like a long list, but I’m not trying to be greedy - there’s just a lot of stuff that would make my day.

webOS 2.0, or 2.1, totally up to you. Grandpa Packard promised us webOS 2.0 by the end of the year, but somehow he only managed to get it to our cousins in France. They’re cool and all, but I’d kinda like to get my hands on it too. I’m not jealous, honest. Okay, you’re Santa Claus; you see me when I’m sleeping. I’ll be honest: I’m really jealous. Jealousy isn’t a good feeling to have this time of year, so maybe you’ll do something to make that feeling go away?

PalmPad. Everybody keeps on talking about how awesome this things going to be, but that we’re not going to see it before the end of the year. Or at CES. Or... whenever. I know it’s kind of a tall order, and all the kids want one this year, but I’m pretty sure my stocking could stretch to fit one.

Touchstone Accessories. I know I asked for this last year, but Uncle Jon promised a whole ecosystem of accessories for Palm devices, and we didn’t get anything accessory-wise the entire year. There’s so much more that the Touchstone tech could do... I’m kind of digging a Touchstone car charger with bluetooth for speakerphone/music (and a line out to my car, if you can swing it).

Palm Pre 3. I know the Pre 2 just came out, but to be honest it feels more like what the Pre Plus should have been. Or maybe it should have come out at the beginning of the year instead of the Plus. I’m not going to pretend to know. Okay, I do that all the time. Anyway, it doesn’t actually have to be the Pre 3 - I just want a new flagship webOS phone I can use on my Sprint, or any network, really. That’s not too much to ask for, is it?

A Rocket Ship. Like Flash Gordon! That’d be so cool!
