    I was thinking about an awesome strategy.....what if HP had some internal goal to build and release like 1000 apps in support and to bolster webOS 2.0 release. If a PalmPad is coming around 2.0 then it'll need them for sure to be a viable slate/tablet platform.

    Chances are, this is their strategy. They have about 50,000 engineers (if I remember correctly) and a bunch of them are working on webOS apps (so they can see how viable the platform is, or so says HP).

    I would assume they'll be releasing these apps to the public under the HP name (since Palm employees--and presumably the parent company's employees--cannot release, or at lease sell, apps).

    Yea...that's what I was thinking but thought that they only had a few thousand engineers/programmers. With that many programmers dogfooding webOS, there ought to be something great apps coming our way.
