While the iPhone dominates the smartphone market and Android is improving by leaps and bounds, there are other platforms out there that may surprise us with some elegant solutions in coming years. RIM and Nokia are the big players in the game and Nokia just replaced its CEO with a senior Microsoft executive, Stephen Elop. It is no surprise considering that the largest smartphone maker in the world still does not have a compelling touchscreen smartphone.
But there is another big player lurking in the shadows that may come out with some very surprising products soon. With the acquisition of Palm, HP, the largest PC maker, has bet big on the smartphone market. And the key here is the webOS. Its elegant architecture and intuitive UI are what make it all so interesting.
