    They badly need app developers and its easier to convert WebOS developers than Android or iOS. Surprised they aren't making the same pitch to RIM developers.

    Seems quite generous
    I wonder how many developers will stay!
    I certainly won't bother to carry on learning how to develop for webOS.

    Zero professional developers will stay. MS is trying to grab some for its own unsuccessful platform. They are trying to knock RIM from the number 3 spot.

    well they already have well over 25k apps, and thousands of DEVOS so I dont think theres a issue there. Though they, like most of the world still do not even know that HP is keeping Webos for the time being, but of course thats How HP does buisness keeping peoples heart rates up.

    25k apps is not very impressive. Apple has 425k apps and about 100k tablet apps. I think even RIM has more than 25k apps.

    Well I think that reaching 25,000 apps for an OS that is only 9 months old is pretty good.

    Everything we thought HP will do for webOS, Microsoft is actually doing for WP7. I like my Galaxy S, but next year when WP7 gets some maturity I'll be again in MS's lap

    For WEB OS developers that may be interested in working on a different platform: Win7 phones are being offered:

    Microsoft Offering Free Developer Phones and Tools For webOS Devs

    Wish I was a developer.... I've got ideas for some APPS - but no time to "develop".

    Cheers,

    Looks like Windows Phone is seeking webOS developers and giving them freebies from the news.

    Quite interesting to see that Microsoft is desperate enough to try and get webOS developers (of which I understand there are zero, or perhaps half a one because webOS "HAS NO APPSSS!!!!!!!!!!") over to their side - really shows you how many THEY have.

    It is compared to WebOS, not so much compared to Android and iOS.

    As a Dev, I think that's a brilliant idea. How many developers, do you think, are sitting tight right now developing for webOS hoping it'll be bought or somehow magically rise from the ashes (again)? It just makes all kinds of sense to be enticed by an offer like this. I've contacted them already hoping to start for WP7. If anything, it'll act as a stop gap IF webOS ever comes back to life.... ever...

    Until then, a developer can't just sit idly...
