What switchers miss from webOS

by Robert Werlinger Fri, 09 Jul 2010 9:18 am EDT

With the release of any flagship level smartphone, there's bound to be an exodus from one phone/platform to another, and the recent launch of Sprint's Evo 4G is no exception.  A handful of webOS users jumped ship, and as they've been discovering in the forums of sister site Android Central, the grass isn't always greener on the other side (in some aspects, at least).  The things switchers miss the most?

  • The Touchstone charging dock.
  • The gesture based user interface.
  • The superior homebrew options, such as Preware.
  • The web browser.
  • The size of the phone.
  • Universal Search and the ability to quickly start typing using the hardware keyboard.
  • The better layout of Palm's application storefront.
  • Synergy!
  • Superior 3D gaming options.

This, of course, begs the question: recent Android (e.g. all that jumped ship for the Evo) converts: what do you miss the most about your webOS device? And potential switchers and those on the fence: what's keeping you in the Palm camp?
