    I have joined two posts in one: What the Asian tech business researchers think about HP keeping webOS and what we can recommend HP for building the new webOS 2.0 tablet.

    I just started with some ideas, but please feel free to give us yours in order to let HP know about them. Thanks.

    The posts:

    Asia Tech business thinkers like Michael Kauh, research analyst at Canalys , said the current PC market is competitive and "very difficult to survive" by offering only traditional desktops or mobile computers. Therefore, a tablet strategy is necessary for PC makers to compete in the market.

    Kauh noted that it would be expensive for HP to maintain WebOS as a platform when it had discontinued production of such devices. Hence, if it does decide to keep the OS, it will need to offer products to generate sufficient profits in this space, he said.

    Kauh underscored that it would be "very important" for HP to own and control its own OS.

    He explained that while Android is open source, which allows tablet makers to customize the user interface, there is no way to ascertain if the OS will still be available in the market or remain free in the future.

    With HP already confirming plans to offer Windows-based tablets, the Canalys analyst said the tech giant will have the choice of supporting both OSes should it choose to keep WebOS.

    Ng Jun Wen, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan, said HP would do well to keep WebOS.
    "HP purchased Palm for US$1.2 billion and selling after a year at bargain-bin prices does not make sense for their shareholders," he noted in an e-mail.

    Instead, Ng said HP should spin WebOS into a different division and give it the time and money it needs to grow.

    "Even Android recently hit its stride only after three years," he added.

    The Frost & Sullivan analyst said WebOS is a "great mobile operating system that, unfortunately, did not have the hardware to match". He noted that reviewers had praised WebOS on the Palm Pre2 but criticized its battery life, camera, screen, and hardware build.

    One WebOS user agreed that HP should retain the OS. In a tweet, Palm Pre 2 owner, Luke Tan, said HP would be making a "huge mistake by not keeping [or] learning how to milk" WebOS.

    And from this writer I would recommend the following for Building the webOS 2:0 Tablet. What are yours ideas?

    DEVELOPERS APPS SHARE: Give them 80 % profit share. If you need to get most developers just give them 90%.

    PARTNERSHIP: Partner Joint Venture with Samsung for a new webOS 2.0 light and thin tablet hardware with:

    CPU: Quad-core chip. 1.5 Ghz each (4 cores)

    RAM: 2GB

    STORAGE: 32B and 64GB (check the latest tech for flash and ssd or a new one)

    CAMERAS: front 2.0 , rear 5 mpxls with led flash

    USB PORTS: One 2.0 and one 3.0

    HDMI port: One.

    Bezels: For the phone webOS gestures on the tablet. (Donīt miss this one, it was a failure you did not include the essentials of webOS phone gestures on the Touchpad)

    Keep Touch to share but now for any phone brand.

    NFC TECHNOLOGY: to share with any tablet or phone, and NFC speakers.

    Yours ideas please. Thanks.

    Nvidia could use another company or two pushing the Tegra3. While not quite what the OP specified, I expect it should do quite well enough.

    Nvidia Tegra3 is a good option for a quad-core chip. Partneship with a electronics parts and components maker like Samsung who makes almost everything in hardware might be much better.

    However a Tri-partner Joint venture is a good idea, too
