    Doesn't HP have to pay Microsoft a licensing fee for each Windows phone sold? (yes). On the other hand, they pay no one for WebOS.

    Furthermore, they employee a number of people to develope WebOS and some of you say that once they make a smartphone WebOS won't be on it. Interesting.

    Like the Treo, I think they will release two phones, Win8 (could be Win9 by the time the phone is released) and a WebOS phone. I can't wait.

    I am not a betting person, I do not gamble, nor do I waste my money, I would buy everyone on this forum a HP Open webOS phone... (I am kidding of course as I do not gamble)


    But I would buy it for myself, and I would buy 10 more and raffle them off... Lets see who can make the best native Open webOS Game, Application like Office, etc...

    As I do not gamble, I think I have 100% confidence in HP/Palm, I am willing to put some money where my thoughts take me, but as I feel it will not happen it is a safe bet?

    Well, I don't think anyone can deny that what's happened so far in their phone divisions, has been completely wrong.

HP didn't buy Palm to get into the smartphone business and I doubt that strategy has changed.
    The tablet and phone combination hasn't really taken off like Palm and RIM thought it should. Like they've tried to make it do. Of course, Palm didn't have the opportunity with the Leopocalypse. RIM has some of the features on Bridge, but Palm came out with integration features that I think are far more compelling. None of the others have any kind of integration whatsoever, other than that if your tablet and your phone are on the same Google or Apple accounts, they can access the same data via the cloud, and the same apps, if they are compatible. Only PlayBook/BlackBerry and webOS actually have features to integrate the devices together.
