webOS Holiday Haiku contest - the finalists!

by Derek Kessler Wed, 14 Dec 2011 10:29 pm EST

Sweet baby webOS haiku entries! More than nine hundred of you responded to our request for your best webOS holiday haikus, and golly there were a lot of good entries. So we snuggled up with a mug of eggnog and basked in the glow of our monitor to pick out the best. As it would turn out, you're all a creative and amusing bunch, so it was actually pretty difficult to pick out the best entries. After the break you'll find our ten finalists and a poll in which to register your vote for who is going to win a 32GB TouchPad and Pre3!
