    Very true but this feels like they are making a big push a year later than they should. Even considering the acquisition the veer should have been available 6 months ago. I feel like HP is finally starting to put its money where its mouth is and hopefully it's not too little too late.

    Its not too late, cause Samsung can make a device like in 20 days. They redid the 10.1 Tab after IP-2 came out like in no time.
    If this helped you hit thanks.

    Well that is refreshing to hear. I wish HP and Palm were so nimble with their internally designed devices.

    Dell and HP have a long standing rivalry. I really doubt dell would license webOS from HP or that HP would let Dell do so even if they wanted to. So far the Dell Android and WP7 devices have yet to make any significant impact on the market and beyond that Dell really doesn't seem to have a very strong post PC plan. As a matter of fact I wouldn't be surprised to see Dell pull out of the consumer market all together in the next few years, their money maker is their SMB division and beyond that see more in the way of profits in their CBG division than they do in their consumer sales division. Dell doesn't even make their own printers or phones just as a note.

    It's never too little too late.

    And I still don't feel like it's a given. It still feels like, if someone approaches them, while it's not an automatic no, it's not a definite yes, if that makes sense.

    It makes perfect sense. HP isn't outside of entertaining the idea of doing that but they aren't going to let any and all hardware manufacturers have a go at their OS which it seems HP is banking on to be a large part of their future roadmap.

    Good point but is HP going to really start pushing outwards to those niches before having a strong foothold in its home market? I have a pretty strong feeling that we may get some answers to this question and a few more that the events from today have opened up during the HP discover event next week. Also on an unrelated note I am really bummed that HP discover is going on at the same time as E3. I am going to be so tired of watching press conferences by the time next week is over.

Given how much of the iPad Samsung manufacturers, it's even possible that they knew about it before January.



    iPad 2 case shows up at CES, packing a mockup iPad 2 -- Engadget

    The Galaxy Tab 10.1 just hit the Best Buy site yesterday running an update of Android - not an entirely new OS. I think it would be nearly impossible for a new webOS hardware manufacturer to get anything out to consumers before the end of the year.
    I am saying they can come up with hardware prototype with no webOS optimization for it in 3 weeks.

    guys i think ure missing the point about samsung being a potential partner for HP. John just spoke on the Qualcomm conference about 1 or 2 unique partners that believe in the ecosystem of webos.
    when he talks about that and u put samsung, i dont seem them making another tablet. maybe they may make a phone or two, but i see them intergrating it into their portfolio. espcially TV's.
    so think google tv but better because now ure phone will be ure input, not a clunky keyboard -=)

    Everybody in the world who makes decent hardware uses android, so whats your point, who would make hardware, some company which is even worse than H/P? The idea of licensing is to make better hardware not worse. Though I wonder if this maybe a license to particular country like China.

    You make a good point. Samsung does focus on many different aspects of the consumer electronic field and they would make sense as a partner to integrate with on not only phones and tablets but also TV's and set top boxes. Imagine a roku or apple tv like device running webOS. Now the real question in this situation would be who would be the content partners to get media on said devices?

    Not going to lie that is a frightening thought what would happen in the hands of a Chinese developer. Chinese companies have more leaks than a pasta strainer

    Did you see the windows 8 demo, it wasnt laggy at all, you know how TP demo is laggy. I think H/P really needs to take this seriously, next year there would be windows 8 tablets and phones all over the world. Before that happens webOS needs to spread more. and iOS 5 is not even announced yet. Good lord, H/P has some work cut out for them.

    I thought he pretty well qualified that he wasn't talking about tablets or PCs, and would only commit to "holding the conversation" on mobile phones. I think he wants fridges and ... yes ... toasters.

    They didn't say what hardware that demo was running on. For all we know that could have been a Hexacore i7 rig with 16gb of ram and 4 gigs of video memory. I doubt that MS would demo their OS on anything less than stellar hardware. Don't forget that the demo's for vista looked amazing but the vast majority of systems sold at launch were woefully underpowered to run it.

    Agree. Get Lenovo on board and you've got some serious wind in your sails for making inroads to enterprise customers.
    Touchscreens are a fad.
