    MOG is a social networking website and blog network, where computer users who listen to their music primarily on their computers or iPods can set up personal pages with their musical interests and listening history. Recently a thread was started on the MOG support forum to create a MOG WebOS app similar to the app they have for the iPhone. Their response was not reassuring and expressed a misunderstanding as to the true market share of WebOS.

    Here are some excerpts from the thread:

    "Please develop a MOG Application for WebOS"

    Mog Support Staff - Posted by Jinsai on July 26, 2010 @ 02:56 PM
    "MOG is looking at a number of mobile platforms. WebOS is one of them. However I don't want to be overly optimistic. Right now it is not a top priority. That may change, depending on HP.
    The MOG app is surprisingly complex and is harder to implement than it may seem."

    "Interesting. Any way you can elaborate on the "depending on HP" portion of this? Are you currently talking to HP about implementation?"

    "Mostly I meant that if HP launches WebOS on one tablet which flops, MOG's probably not going to build something.
    On the other hand, if HP decides to become a major player in the phone/tablet/CE space and starts shipping a number of devices which sell through in quantity, the platform becomes more appealing."

    "I like the idea. Let's get it on WebOS!"

    "We'll see if WebOS moves beyond 2 devices on the 3rd largest carrier - that's why I was saying it's up to HP. Thanks for the suggestion!"

    "I think you may be miss informed about the number of WebOS devices and Carriers.
    Currently WebOS is on the Pre and Pixi on Sprint, and the Pre+ and Pixi+ on Verizon and AT&T.
    This is 4 devices on the 3 largest Carriers in the US.
    WebOS is also on 2 devices on O2 in Europe and Bell in Canada.
    Pre and Pixi phones are also available on Carriers in France and Mexico."

    MOG then closed the thread - "Comments are currently closed for this discussion. You can start a new one."

    I wonder how many other companies do not consider WebOS important enough to develop apps for.
    Palm m130 > Verizon Trēo 650 > Verizon Trēo 755p > Verizon Palm Prē Plus > TouchPad > Verizon Palm Prē 2

    This is truth. And Windows Phone 7 will be out in October. So even less room for webOS.
