Recently I learned about OpenMobile and their plans to put all Android applications on the HP Touchpad - Ofcourse there was a problem with this.. HP would have to buy in............so...
However, I recently received a few Emails from OpenMoble (Most likely because I contacted them once before about adding their Apps to the touchpad) But anyway, Below are the Emails sent to me:
My name is Anita and I am the Marketing Coordinator for OpenMobile. You were kind enough to contact us (via tweets, email, and blog posts) regarding creating a downloadable version of our ACL software for webOS. As you might remember, our ACL software makes all of the Android Apps run on non-Android devices (ie, the TouchPad, etc.).
We are hoping to poll a few webOS consumers regarding this topic. Would you be kind enough to accept a call from OpenMobile's CEO, Bob Angelo? If so, we promise not to take but a few minutes of your time. Please reply with your phone number and we will give you a buzz. We promise not to release this number to anyone for any reason, we simply want to speak to a few consumers to gauge interest in this ACL downloadable product for webOS.
We hope to hear back. Thank you so much!
(I responded - Yes.. Number is ---- and Also pointed them to the direction of the Android Apps for WebOS Petition)
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for responding to my email so quickly and providing me with your phone number! I truly appreciate you taking the time to consider receiving a call from Bob Angelo, OpenMobile's CEO.
To share a bit of background, we are currently considering offering a downloadable version of our Application Compatibility Layer (ACL™) technology for webOS consumers. We look forward to gaining direct feedback and insight from webOS users regarding their current device, the App experience, wishes, price points, etc. Mr. Angelo is making a handful of calls this week to hands-on users, and again, we wanted to thank you for being kind enough to share your number for this purpose in the event he is able to reach out to you.
Thank you for helping us!
