WebOS is an "also ran". They tried, they failed. First with Palm, then with HP. WebOS would have been a huge success if it came out a couple years before they finally got it out the door. Palm announced it almost three years before it appeared on store shelves. In the interim, while Palm was running around with it's hair on fire looking like the Keystone Kops, Android shot out of the gate, plus Apple's iOS became a runaway hit. Maybe WebOS could have been a contender but Palm's complete lack of timing doomed it to failure.
