To what purpose?

Man, I hope webOS doesn't die the death at the hands of a vendor who doesnt understand the value of the asset they acquired. Not unlike Android 1.0 and the G1, the Palm Pre was a pretty crappy device with software that showed an awful lot of potential. Unfortunately I doubt HP are as invested in webOS as Google are in Android.

Jeff, I'm afraid that's to late. HP, namely Apotheker, proofed not having an idea of the smartphone-Business at all already.
Last april I judged it a chance for webOS being taken over by a strong partner. In the last 11 month HP convinced me that thereis not only one 'dancing elephant' in the show.
R.I.P. webOS - I'll miss you!
