    So, if HP is not planning support for devices they all ready made, does that mean they are planning new hardware? It seems silly to make an OS without planned hardware. So what do you think?

    HP really is the worst company in existence. That is not even an exaggeration. You would think that for a company that nobody likes anymore (lost investors lots of money, spat on existing customers and partners, etc...), they would at least want a small community of users to actually respect them by doing something good for them. I don't care what the "business decision" was, HP is releasing a freaking open source OS that nobody will use (read, super techies might use it, but that is not a large number of people). Do they really see themselves competing at all? Get the licenses to release the proprietary components for the old phones. Make a version for your previous users. Just do it. Its the least you could do for your once loyal customers. Honestly, I was hoping this would happen (clearly a stupid thing to hope for) to go back to my Pre 3, but now that's never going to happen. Oh well, at least there is no more waiting around only to be stabbed in the back. I mean why didn't they tell us that UP FRONT, jeez.

    Thanks for nothing HP.

    Oh, and to answer your question. No way in hell are they making new devices. I don't even think they have a clue what they are doing in general.

    HP phone buyers don't matter to HP because HP sold very few phones. $99 touchpad owners will never sustain the HP tablet business.

    Look at this site for instance - A story about a new app get less than 10 comments. A free app giveaway gets 100 or so.

    It's not a user base that will make or break HP. People can say they will never buy another HP product, but nobody really knows who bought HP products before or are they just $99 people caught up in the I want an update of a discontinued line frenzy.

    Only chance to not flunk out of existance completely is that WebOSInternals or Phoenix or some other motely community crew whips up some port to an android device.
    So it stays an enthusiasts OS at best. I can't see many people developing apps for an OS only used on borrowed hardware by a handful of people.
    And don't argue with OpenMobile. If people want Android apps, they get an android smartphone (which they will have to get anyway)....

    ATM I see no real chance of OpenWebOS to make it back to the market as serious competitor...

    My touchpad makes a good digital clock on my computer table and that is about it
    Android did come out on a few touchpads out of the box so it can be done very easy
    I bought a nexus 7 the weekend they came out and they are really nice. except
    the video probelm. Hp had the 1st 7" tablet with the go but with there great decisions
    as of late let that one slip right on by also.

    Well what in the last two years convinces you that HP is about to launch a new WebOS tablet?

    what is the big deal. current webos hardware will not be around for long. Touchpads while only a year old, will be forgotten before you know it. Pre3s are few and far between and older Pre's are all getting long in the tooth. I have a TP, a Pre2, a Pre+ and had a Pre- (and Treo yada yada). I'm sure there will be some meta-doctor type solution to pull the drivers out of old doctors and use them with the community webos coming out soon. if the hacker community do not do this, then consider the h/w dead. for HP to consider new os for old hardware (other than TP) is silly...

    You know what - I don't actually care what O/S is running under the hood. I care about ease of use, apps that work and stability.

    So HP won't support the old stuff. OK, but Android developers do - and while you don't get the WebOS goodness, it is generally "good enough".

    Sure, I'm disappointed that HP didn't consider the loyal TP owners. But life goes on. I've just bought a Galaxy S3 and that's nice too!!!

    I'm sorry, if open webOS if for the existing user base then open webOS would have support for existing devices. This statement is just wrong.

    They clearly are aiming for future devices, therefore new user base, expansion etc.

    That's not really relevant here, though.

    A man who beats his wife is not the same analogy compared to, say Edison inventing the light bulb.

    Failure a thousand times can lead to success once, and all it takes is once.
