Released at CES 2009, the Palm Pre (and Pre Plus, for that matter) are a bit long in the tooth. What's more, the Pre and Pixi have a notorious reputation for being somewhat slow. I love webOS, but am concerned that if they don't get their act together, it's going to become obsolete.
Apparently, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang believes the same. In an interview with Laptop Magazine, he went to bat for webOS:
"But it sure would be an honor to work on webOS. It’s a great operating system. If you look at the first generation of webOS phones, the Palm Pre, the UI is just brilliant. It’s just too slow. So it needs a faster processor. Otherwise, it’s a great operating system.”
A fast processor, combined with a great operating system? Sounds good to me. Come up with a revised form factor, and I'm all ears.
