    This was probably already posted somewhere in the forums, but I just saw it today:
    HP readying WebOS phones for early 2011 | The Digital Home - CNET News

    So at least there's SOME news about new hardware...

    Then you are straight up calling Ruby a liar. He said multiple times, before and after the HP acquisition that new hardware was in the pipeline.

    I don't know if you work in the corporate world, but when a company is acquired it's not like handing over the keys to the building. Projects get pushed back, budgets get restructured and management gets shifted.

    Things seem to be settling down now so I expect some movement over the next couple months.

    To say they never had any hardware in the pipeline is ridiculous IMO.

    That would make sense given the other details we have, especially if they've passed the units on to carriers with webos 2.0 preloaded, anybody testing it might not even realise the hardware has changed.

    There's a real difference between nothing in the pipeline and

    A "pipeline of phone" implies multiple devices, at different stages of development to me, and that I doubt exited, if at all, until recently. I fully expect they had something in development, the issue is how many somethings, and how developed.

    Exaggeration vs lies, perhaps?
    PalmPilot Professional...Palm Vx...Treo 600...Treo 680...HTC Touch HD...iPhone 4S...

    Fair enough. I assumed he meant there was nothing in the pipeline at all. Thanks for clarifying.

    Some tasks take a set amount of time no matter how much money you can throw at them. Final integration and testing is kinda like that. Any task that requires a lot of coordination will be like that. It is actually possible to make a late software task later by adding more people to it.

    Agreed, however not having enough staff will usually prolong the project. Look at webOS 1.0

    ok with knowing what we know now.. and the "Pre 2" popping out.. with a spec bump. What do you think about Palms original "phones already in development"? I think they went back to revisit their cad drawings after HP got involved and re-booted their ideas along with HP's vision in mind.. again we are pushing 2 years for hardware at this point. The spec bump is there so they can show off WebOS 2.0 before CES and give us a minor lube job till the big guns come out in Jan.... i really think we are going to see some sick Phones then... then 3-6 months after CES actually see the real phones. Unless they are planning on surprising us with something sooner... but i doubt it as the iPhone verizon launch will take ALL headlines.

    pre 2 has no HP influence on development

    I can say that they haven't left any at my bar. Flying Saucer on Huebner in San Antonio, TX. Palm you reading this, hint, hint, nudge, nudge, know what I mean? I'm usaly there on Wednsday nights if you'd like to join me for a drink and leave behind a prototype new webOS device. I'll be the one arguing with Android/iPhone users, can't miss me.
    Really? Flying Saucer! Our MINI Cooper club has our Dallas North Happy Hour at the Addison FS. My MIL lives at Patriot Heights and sometimes we swing over to your FS when we visit her. Interesting, the last time I was there in the evening, it was about the time that the lost iPhone debacle was occuring. I kept looking/waiting for someone to lose another.
