    Doesn't HP have to pay Microsoft a licensing fee for each Windows phone sold? (yes). On the other hand, they pay no one for WebOS.

    Furthermore, they employee a number of people to develope WebOS and some of you say that once they make a smartphone WebOS won't be on it. Interesting.

    Like the Treo, I think they will release two phones, Win8 (could be Win9 by the time the phone is released) and a WebOS phone. I can't wait.

    I am not a betting person, I do not gamble, nor do I waste my money, I would buy everyone on this forum a HP Open webOS phone... (I am kidding of course as I do not gamble)


    But I would buy it for myself, and I would buy 10 more and raffle them off... Lets see who can make the best native Open webOS Game, Application like Office, etc...

    As I do not gamble, I think I have 100% confidence in HP/Palm, I am willing to put some money where my thoughts take me, but as I feel it will not happen it is a safe bet?

    Well, I don't think anyone can deny that what's happened so far in their phone divisions, has been completely wrong.

HP didn't buy Palm to get into the smartphone business and I doubt that strategy has changed.
    The tablet and phone combination hasn't really taken off like Palm and RIM thought it should. Like they've tried to make it do. Of course, Palm didn't have the opportunity with the Leopocalypse. RIM has some of the features on Bridge, but Palm came out with integration features that I think are far more compelling. None of the others have any kind of integration whatsoever, other than that if your tablet and your phone are on the same Google or Apple accounts, they can access the same data via the cloud, and the same apps, if they are compatible. Only PlayBook/BlackBerry and webOS actually have features to integrate the devices together.

    I use my Phone (PrePlus with webOS 2.2.4) and Touchpad (webOS 3.0.5 with LunaCE 4.9.5), all the time with SMS sharing and as a BlueTooth Phone device. So it took off with me, browsing websites, get a call, talk, then (with WiFi) do other things watch movie trailer, use send to webOS (DataJog) send the link to the person I am talking to, etc...

    It took off for me... Love my apps on both devices...

    I prefer Meg meant that touchpad was released too soon without the proper support and big name app partners. Pre 3 never officially released so doesn't count. Veer was good niche phone but didn't suit most people's tastes. i.e. they misread the market's desire for megasized phones.

    I really think that having both the features of webOS for integrating between the devices, and Blackberry's Bridge, would be just the most fantastic thing. Although I rarely use the telephone function, I certainly do love being able to have my phone sitting downstairs in my office on it's touchstone, and my tablet upstairs in my room, able to receive a call if needed. it's nice. I don't use the SMS sharing anymore, now that I have Google Voice integration on my TouchPad .. and once I get it smoothed out on phones, hopefully I won't need SMS at all on the phone.

    I will still say MEH.... The TouchPad hardware was first designed to run an OS other than webOS.... Android is free, and the HP tag is slim, they could be testing many pieces of hardware with an open OS.

    Either way it has been known that the TouchPad hardware was built before webOS was owned by HP, even if this is a legit HP hardware test... doesn't mean it's legit or a final build...

    Please if anyone can convert this to solid evidence of anything please explain to the rest of us...
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Agree, and who knows if that HP Android Bender is an old hardware before the TouchPad webos. I remember someone recieved and Android TouchPad instead a webOS.

    Nowhere.

    Why are you trying to counter my parallel argument?
    I am trying to counter it because I misunderstood what you said and I need to pay better attention - apologises for that.

    Can't be that old the spec and the fact that is running running 4.0.4 means that if it is real it must be a recent development.

    If it is a WP8 smartphone, I am buying it.
    If it is a weBOS smartphone, I am buying it either.

    yup just read this on android central. kind of weird they wouldn't go with open webos but i think releasing a android phone is a smart move for them. maybe they will blend parts of webos with android to give us a taste of something new?

    The only way HP could compete is if they offered a high-end portrait slider Android phone. HTC, Samsung, and the others already have the slab form factor more than covered. I would love to see them make a light webOS "skin" on top of Android.
    Want to keep up with my exciting new projects? You know where to find me.
