Perhaps you are correct, but that doesn't mean anything to me as a consumer. So you feel comfortable with them, that's great. But that's not what I said. "Court" is what I said.

If there are tons of developers that don't know what webOS is, then I rest my case.
Again, I want HP to do this right, but here we are, over a year after the purchase was announced, and we have 1 smartphone that's niche, we have a tablet coming out (yay!) without any real ecosystem to support it and the top of the line smartphone that's still has no street date.
As an addendum, I'm going to add to my previous post, the biggest problem is that HP doesn't appear to know it's competition very well, or care. They can try to pick off the bottom feeders, but what keeps those very customers from going to the established platforms, with mature development and tons of applications?
