    Please take a few minutes or however long you want to tell Meg Whitman what you think. It only took about 3 to 5 minutes of how I would like continue support of webOS. I would love it we could flood the inbox with the webOS community suggestions. Here is the link:

    Yes I know that is wishful thinking. Please email anyways, it certainly can't hurt.

    Wonders how many filters are there before a single email gets to her... Obviously, this gets to a monkey in the comm. dept then filtered out.... Junk mails are thrown away.

    Seriously people, do it.

    I just got two replies: one generic (thank you for your feedback etc) but another one that specifically said (direct quote) "we have received your email to HP's CEO, regarding continuing to manufacture webOS devices". It means someone took the time to read my (rather long) email and actually knew what I was referring to.

    Surprisingly I got a call from someone saying they were from HP at a little after 12 today. It was a 407 area code and the man ( I missed his name due to his accent ) said they called to tell me they had received my feedback and wanted to let me know they would be forwarding it up the line. I thanked him for his call and told him I was surprised that they called about it. I explained to him I understand any corporation has to consider its shareholders first, and if WebOS had been floundering for years, it would make sense, but with such a short time to even warm the water, there was no way for HP to truly be able to judge its success. I told him that WebOS has a strong but dwindling following and we have been in what seems to be a perpetual holding pattern. He said he would certainly communicate that as well. Obviously he couldn't give me any information, but the simple fact that they called was positive in my opinion.

    Here is my message that I sent and the response I got back this afternoon after the call:

    Message:
    I am a Palm and HP customer since 1999, owning a number of HP computers and printers, and Palm PDA's and phones. In fact I have only owned one phone in the last 8 years that was not Palm. I currently have an HP desktop PC, HP laptop, HP printer, and Palm Pre 2 (with a Palm Pre, Pre Plus, and Pixi in a drawer). I am a consummate WebOS supporter and quite frankly am appalled by some of the recent actions HP has enacted with the WebOS platform. This platform has a rabid fan base, similar to Apple, and would be a great foundation for HP to build a base with. I also realize that many of the decisions where by Mr. Apotheker, and look to you to correct that shortsighted view. WebOS has been lauded by even the most diehard Apple fans, and by bringing it back with solid hardware, HP can take market share from both Apple and Android with its ease of use and support. Consider the limited scale of the users currently yet look at the demand for Pre 3's (people paying huge amounts f
    or them) and the actions of groups such as WebOS Internals. Imagine the market share that can be taken by releasing quality hardware combined with the support of HP and groups like WebOS Internals. The possibilities are endless. Further, creating connectivity between ALL HP products (phones communicating with printers, tablets, PC's, etc.) can entice consumers to more HP products. We are not dealing with the Apple Newton or some other limited product; we are dealing with a product that with a slight amount of support can put HP deeply into the smart phone market.

    I challenge you to look beyond the bottom line of today. I challenge you to look at the chance to create a solid base of consumers that will line up the night before the release of a new product. Look at where Apple was before Steve Jobs return, and then look at the iPhone and iPad releases. This is the opportunity you have today.

    As an HP/Palm customer and enthusiast, I ask you to not waste it.

    Unfortunately you are correct. As much as I'd like to be optimisitic about this, I know that the absolute best we can hope for is WebOS to be licensed out and even that is not much consolation as we are about at the end of its life cycle due to how it has been handled.

    It would almost make sense from a business perspective for Microsoft to buy whats left of Palm from HP. They could effectively bury whats left of WebOS, or integrate parts of it, plus own patents that would give them strength in the smart phone industry.

    Please continue to take the time to email the CEO. It may not help but it most definitely won't hurt. It takes very little effort or time. webOS is not dead and lets not let HP bury it without letting us be heard!
