    I was just wondering if the webOS will always be Palm hardware exclusive or if we will begin to see them on devices made by other companies like HTC, Samsung, etc.

    Palm has said that it will be exclusive to Palm hardware. Like Apple, they recognize that keeping the hardware and software together has the best potential to ensure user satisfaction. I think they point to licensing out Palm OS as one of the reasons for its downfall, though it's more complex than that.

    This is what I was hoping for. Afterall Apple and RIM seems pretty successful from this.
