Despite some issues, webOS 2.0 is probably neck and neck with iOS4 when it comes to polish and ease of use

The Engadget WebOS 2.0 Review.


Don’t get me wrong. I like WebOS. I like competition. I want WebOS to be great and to perform well in the market. It’s not there, yet.

Thumb through the screenshot gallery. Here are a couple lowlights:

Those two images alone are enough for me to conclude that WebOS doesn’t touch iOS for usability.

That first image make zero sense. I’m guessing you’ve created a new “page” and not placed anything on it, yet, but it looks like you’ve wiped your phone. That second image shows way too many options, too much text, and no context. Consider how you do the exact same things in iOS - with touch gestures.
