    I will let the cold fact to decide who is correct in 3 months.

    developers (businesses) that want to expand their business will give HP app's a shot . . the ones who get in early are afforded the most to gain. I can't blame developers from sitting on the sideline prior to this, but the ones scratching their heads on whether to put effort into HPs product are getting behind everyday.

    Dev support and encouraging developers to create quality apps are two distinctly different things. Support is assisting what you have. My point is that HP hasn't given the outward appearance they are dedicating the resources necessary to attract developers.

    I don't care about magazine subscriptions or the other flashy things. What will impress me (and others) is to see a number of diverse, quality apps.

    They aren't dedicating the resources? Putting WebOS on millions of laptops and computers and printers. ummm how much more resource dedication do you think is needed?

    I seriously doubt you will. I suspect you will continue to make predictions now, rather than wait for that 3 months worth of facts.

    That's fine, nothing wrong with making predictions. But I can't quite figure out why folks do so, then pretend they're only giving facts.

    lol, you have been making success prediction all this time and you don't know why?

    For those in this thread that have been implied that HP is going to simply depend on folks to buy because it's HP, you need to look at this article about HP's "Startup Central".

    Seriously? It's a WebOS forum. I'm expressing an opinion, not stating it as fact.
    And actually, I've said very few times that the TP is going to succeed. I've given reasons why I think it will though.

    So, are you really going to stop the doomsaying, claims that HP doesn't know what they're doing, etc etc, until the facts bear it out in three months?
