    IMO I think this is a great move for HP, and Webos being utilized. I also believe that smartphone products will be ready by the end of Q1 2011 the latest. My assumption is hardware has already completed most testing stages for months, giving hints like certain HP exects giving note that when the masses see the new devices they will be in aww. Just an assumption, and hope with this team it helps speed up production.

    Shortly after the Pre was announced, I wrote about the possibilites of a "home based cloud" - maybe we'll see something along those lines. Personal storage/server systems that sync with multiple devices.

    And for that I'm excited.
    I have one of those. After MS fixed the OS it became my favorite, most reliable, and sleekly-designed tech product in my office. Glad to have that talent now working on the phone platform I like so much.

    And you can roll / fold your phone in your pocket since it uses a folding display. Cases and gorilla glass display is SSOOOO 2010.....

    This is just another move to illustrate that HP is all in with WebOS and Palm. Clearly, they care that both are successful as it part of their strategy to provide an all encompassing set of solutions for business and consumers.

    As far as timing is concerned, I would assume that things are on schedule and adding this talent is more of an opportunity (caused by MS's announcement of dropping DE and the subsequent backlash; i.e. people who would have upgraded saying they now won't) to add more Engineers to Palm to make sure there are no hiccups and that the current 1 year roadmap doesn't fail. They are putting the resources into Palm to make sure they can create demand for WebOS devices and drive their overall strategy.

    Windows Home Server-based MediaSmart systems, while successful, did not fit well with HP's vision of "becoming the foremost Service Providers’ Service Provider, delivering a set of cloud capabilities that enable service providers to take full advantage of the power of the cloud".

    WebOS has already proven it's capability as a web based cloud friendly operating system and is a viable option to replace the HP MediaSmart software that is the core of the HP Touchscreen and Home Server-based cloud technology.
    Got any links to for the above?
