    I think that's just because not much has really happened in the webOS world during the past year or so...

    I'm not unhappy with my original webOS device, so waiting hasn't been an issue. Homebrewing, patches, and F105 overclock kernel have kept me happy. My glass has been full. I don't need to change devices every 3-6 months. Maybe if I ate more microwaveable food I'd see the world differently.

    When the original Palm Pre was announced, it was in January of 2008, but it did not go on sale until June of 2008. With that sort of delay, the hype of the announcement was allowed to die, and only those who really liked what they saw stuck with it and bought the original Palm Pre on Sprint.

    Now, Sprint isn't a bad company, but due to not having the overall coverage of AT&T and Verizon, Sprint as an exclusive partner for the first six months was a bad move, since it allowed whatever public hype that remained from the initial announcement to die out for non-Sprint customers.

    So, what HP is saying is that when they announce the new devices on Feb 9th, they will be launched by the carriers, probably within a month. This is similar to Apple announcing the new iPhone and it being available for sale fairly quickly.

    Going forward, any new devices will also be closer to a "hard launch" of a product than an announcement of a device that won't be out for ages. We can hope from this that HP will push the WebOS 2 upgrade on the carriers, giving them under a month to accept the OS upgrade, rather than letting the carriers delay OS updates for four months the way they have been.

    Guess I was a year late. All along I thought I had a launch day device. Damn.

    Yea, I remember Palm saying something along the lines of releasing a new device every two months this year...

    An average of 2 devices every other month is what I think was said.

    I guess if that isn't frequent enough for some then they need an Intervention! Or they need to go with one of many Android options and leave webOS.

    this afternoon in an interview with the BBC Leo said that HP will not play the long waiting game from announcement to release. He said the wait would be "weeks not months".
