No one needs a Tablet PC, but the people still buying. And a big number don't know what to do with IPad, Galaxy Tab, Iconia, etc, etc, etc...
no one wanted a webOS device except the 1% webOS faithful.
Until now, this story is not really explained... I the HP put to sell 1.000.000 unities, gonna leave 25% in only one channel and 75% in all other channels, his website included?
When the largest US retailer returns 250,000 due to lack of sales, it's over.
And nobody and no other source has confirmed this hoax.
Well, I have a friend that say "the end only finished when is finished"...
Will it ever recover? Is it too late? Who knows? All we can do is hope that open sourcing will bring the final "sparkle" which the faithful are waiting for (and I include me in that sentiment).
Until release the code and we know if gonna be new hardware, all that we can really do is wait...
