    The fact of the matter is every last one of us got thrown under the bus. The new phones and TP's should go on for awhile, but who wants to develop comercially for something that is dead, absolutely dead, for the next year, minimum. And no known prospect that there will be anything then. At least over the last year we had HP's now worthless word that there would be things coming. Do they deserve a second chance?

    And does anyone believe they will have any news "in the coming weeks?"

    Interestingly, HP isn't just stopping webOS hardware, they're stopping ALL hardware. That makes a huge difference.

    Firesale = millions of devices in the market.

    For now, HP only stopped production of webOS devices. Computers and other stuff is still not canceled.
    Back to devs... HP's hysterical firesale and cancellation of Pre3 is a sign that they will not support any existing hardware. They are hoping dev's will continue development so App catalog can grow because of potential buyer for webOS (not likely). Remember Mojo/Enyo hustle? That was hard to maintain whan things was right. Can you imagine how complicated thing are right now?

    I got the same letter from HP and I don't believe a word from those jackwagons. They promise support now, we will see in 12 months if they are singing the same tune, and the sad thing is there are people here that actually believe them. The only reason webos will stay "alive" will be thanks to the homebrew community and webos internals not HP.

    HP made webos a toxic asset and I doubt any manufacturer will jump to webos.
    Trekker and Brain_ReCall like this.

    Haha. Yeah, that'd happen if you smoked LSD.

    You know why?

    Cause nothing happens when you smoke LSD. You stay sane and sober (because the molecule denaturates way below the temperature of an open flame).

    3. Multi tasking advantage has closed with release of WP7 Mango.

    This chapter will be the last. RIP
    Everyone releases the phone first then the tablet HP was backwards and released the tablet and no phone. So many people were sceptical in moving to a unfamiliar form factor and 1. webOS isnt slow. And 3. my friend has Mango and it isnt all that, like webOs. And if they would have just waited like what they are doing now instead of releasing a tablet that wasnt ready but release a new phone that they kept up to date with 2. it would have been better devoloped for the tablet. People dont want a tablets that they arent familiar with but a phone is different.
