I've been reading the quote over and over trying to parse what it really means..

Upcoming releases include our distribution of WebKit, which will support not only HTML5, but also Silverlight and Flash through the use of plug-ins.
But he does specifically say "our distribution of Webkit," not Enyo.
"Our distribution of Webkit" is what powers the webOS browser and SDK apps, no? Unless HP is planning on entering the browser wars, releasing a cross-platform browser based on it's own Webkit distribution, what then would be the point of targeting Silverlight plugin support, if not an attempt to get Silverlight on webOS?
The only other thing I can think of is maybe some kind of cross effort with their Windows tablet objectives?
Or maybe he meant Enyo and the wires got crossed in the context talking about Webkit? I guess we'll have to wait and see what...err...develops. (pun not intended)
