    Hi all,

    No business school would every recomment the crazy way that HP bought Palm//webOS dumped it to find out that the public can't get enough...

    There is an easy fix for who ever buys webOS or license... all you have to do is pay to have apps ported from other platforms...in many cases it can be done in a few hours to a few days....if the app count comes up so will further interest into one of the easiest OS around!

    HP said they were going to do so and didn't however this entire issue has been so screwed up from day one and yet interest in webOS is thru the roof!

    Take care,

    Jay

    As Samsung ponders webOS, questions of market support remainBy Andrew Nusca | August 29, 2011, 8:54am PDT

    As Samsung ponders webOS, questions of market support remain | ZDNet

    Summary: Samsung may be considering purchasing HP’s webOS mobile operating system. But in a highly competitive market, it’s going to need aggression — perhaps in the enterprise — to win.

    DigiTimes reports this morning that Korean tech giant Samsung is considering purchasing Hewlett-Packard’s (and Palm’s) recently assassinated mobile operating system webOS.

    Yes, this is a major issue. Some have tried to dismiss the low app number on WebOS as a non-factor in the failure of WebOS to catch on. No, it's not the only reason WebOS stumbled, but it was definitely a factor. I can say with certainty that every person I've talked to about getting a WebOS device has asked me how many apps there are. There's no way WebOS can ever catch up to iOS or Android in app number, but if someone should buy/license it, they should be able to figure out a way to get all the most important apps ported over.

    Hi all,

    HP claimed it was going to have it's own people create apps and/or supply the man/womanpower & funds to port apps while working with app writers/creators...sadly HP did neither.....who ever buys or licenses webOS will have to do so or they will have the same problem.

    Palm/webOS created tools that makes porting of games and many other apps, a fairly straight forward and in many cases not very time consuming process. That was all before HP got into the picture....let's see if another firm learns from HP's mistakes...

    No matter how many good apps there are out there for webOS all the press and John/Jane Q Public seems to be concerned with is the total number of apps..HP knew this going in...fumbled the ball and didn't seem to give a hoot.

    Take care,

    Jay
