    I get the feeling he's being a <touch> disingenuous here. I actually think he's just sick of being asked about new hardward ALL the time. He wants to be a voice for HP to the webOS crazies (like us), but he can't divulge super-secret timelines for stuff. I think they're going to want to have something come out with webOS 2.0.

    At the same time, we know 1.5ghz chips won't be available until next year, so says the manufacturers. So HP/Palm might be in a bit of a conundrum. Do they put out a phone now that will be eclipsed by Android within a couple of months of debut, or do they wait and put out a TOP-OF-THE-LINE phone with the fastest processor available in Spring 2011. Do they come out with a new phone, then a tablet a couple of months later? How do you re-enter the phone race at this point. A Pre2 now that's an upgrade over the original and Pre+, then a PreHD in the spring? Do they tick off the hardcore guys who will buy the next webOS phone on launch day, only to have another, better phone come out a few months later. That's what Android is doing and people who bought into the OG Android phones are ****ed they can't upgrade for another 18 months.

    These are all questions that I'm sure are being asked by those "in the know."

    LMAO! No, that was my blackness thinking "maybe there is some technical term I'm not familiar with, since it can't be the obvious answer." Too funny...

    ltm ltm lol ltm

    I've got a friend who still has the original G1 and he seethes everytime a new Android phone comes out cuz he's stuck and can't afford to pay off-contract prices. He wants to leave Android because of the fragmentation. That's my main complaint with Android. Once you buy into it, a newer model comes out a couple of months later.

    We have the opposite thing going on here. We're begging for new phones and not getting any real response other than "it's coming." At least with the dread Fruit Phone, you know a new one comes out each June...

    How about just 'that person'? It's not insulting or condescending, at all.

    I thought the term we used reflected someone who is happy and likes to wear make-up and make children smile...was that condescending?

    Yeah, when I go back and read it, it didn't come out that way, huh?

    hehehe
