    Yeah, just like making the Pre able to work with iTunes saved it.

    Oh, wait...

    Good point, but who like iTunes anyway? It will be so nice to not have to install a huge and cumbersome desktop application with iOS 5 comes out.

    RIM knows it's app store can't compete with Android/iOS. Even the Windows Phone MarketPlace has surpassed the BB market.

    "If you can't beat them, join them" is the phrase that comes to mind.

    This is the exact same quote from the statement HP made a week ago, why are all the sites suddenly posting it as news again?

    Unfortunately we aren't RIM , which is a MASTER of COPYCAT!

    They steal WebOS UI on their QNX, and now want to become parasite on Android because they can't compete with Android / iOS

    Sorry for RIM lovers.. no offense here.. but RIM such a shame company.

    They can't innovate anymore, just copy other OS benefit.

    This is what many said would happen. If you get webOS devices in the hands of people who are willing to give it a try, you will notably increase the user base, thereby notably increasing the appetite/market for app development, thereby notably increasing the need/desire for more webOS devices.

    I like this. Can I like my own post? I'm not liking ME, I'm liking what is happening with webOS...shining it's light in the darkness of the well that HP dropped it in...thankfully, Lassie told the rest of the world to check on 'Timmy' (the TouchPad) in the well.

    Woof!

    Its very tiring reading "No Android" "No Android" all the time there is a world out there.
    Well actually believe it or not they are doing it unfortunately.

    @NickA no developers are not jumping from the webOS ship. They are jumping on the webOS ship. And that's because RIM has sold like 10000 units and TP probably has sold more than any other Tablet (except iPad of course).
    Take a look at the forums. There a lot of threads saying that this company decided to develop for webOS.

    It sounds like no one at HP knows exactly what's going on.

    apps and games will resume in HP touchpad catalog. Now is the best time to port apps/games and make some money. Before this sale the touch sold around 200k in 1 1/2 month. Now it has sold more than a million in a week. It is selling like hot cake. Right now is the number 1 selling tablet in the market. Even HP my be changing its mind about webos. The future is looking brighter and brighter for touchpad.

    Well, that's good then. I'm a c# web applications developer, and I also do iOS and Android apps. I thought about getting into webOS, but then the news broke. I'd consider doing development for it if it's announced webOS will live on, maybe on another device or something. But I can't risk spending time creating apps for a device and/or OS that is no longer being made. There's is a cap on the number of potential customers who may buy an app.

    Well. When I send email to CEO Leo via HP website. After several days I got reply email from HP:

    Your comments have been received by HP and have been forwarded to the appropriate people within Hewlett-Packard for review.


    Regards,

    CEO Customer Relations


    Hope this is not just a computer auto-reply. And the feedback will be real.

    Actually they did say this last week:

    HP TouchPad slashed to 89 in UK | News | PC Pro
    webOS OTA updates still coming; device warranties will still be honored | The #1 HP webOS, TouchPad, Pre, and Veer Community | PreCentral.net

    It's the exact same quote as the one in the article in the first post.

    Hopefully it means a major browser update. My biggest gripe with WebOS has been the lack of some pretty basic features that should be present in a modern browser. That and it just being much slower than it should even after OC and installing various patches.

    - Lack of bookmark management (folders, groups, renaming, changing URL etc.)
    - Lack of bookmark sync or import
    - Lack of bookmark "bar"
    - No tabs
    - Doesn't remember login sessions
    - Lack of proxy configuration
    - Lack of user agent configuration
    ...

    Plus lots of little things
    - Reload doesn't remember position on page
    - No method for jumping to beginning or end of page
    - No view of where on the page you are
    - No option for viewing certain things inline, like PDF.

    I see your point there, but how should user agent be a user configurable thing?

    Even for Firefox it's not until you go under the hood in about:config then you can change it.
