Re: webOS had the wrong name
Most of the Palm stuff standed out by itself because of PalmOS. Even as late as 2006, the Treo was one of the most wanted smartphones out there, IIRC it could even do video chat. Suddenly Palm decided to spin off the OS division, and all development stagnated.
Then the fugly WinMo came in to fill the gap, and suddenly the Palm 'smartphones' turned into a me-too something running WinMo. They faded into obscurity, and by the time webOS came out, they had been lost in the sea of clunky WinMo "smart"phones.
The same thing is happening right now with Nokia... see how they lost their majority smartphone share overnight after the Elopocalypse...
