  1. HP is planning on delivering at least four more webOS 2.0 devices. Last week, the homebrew group WebOS Internals dug through the webOS Doctor (the ROM image for restoring a webOS device) and found five codenames: Broadway, Windsor, Mantaray, Stingray, and Roadrunner, according to (via PreCentral). The last one is none other than the P...

    I believe it was a good move on HP's part to acquire Palm. I am sure they will be able to put WebOS to creative uses. I don't know much about cell phones but I am wondering what else they can do with that OS. I thought it was pretty impressive to get a Printer running off the WebOS at the time.

    I like HP. They make excellent business line computers. Both the Notebook and Desktop lines are great. Although I believe they have stopped the Business notebook line for the probook series.

    Also, is that C++? I am not good with programming but it looks like C++. Could be C#

    This looks like potential good news but here's hoping these bad boys come out sooner rather then later. Can HP really afford to lose anymore time bleeding fans to the competition? I mean I would love to be rocking a better built WebOS device but waited as long as possible as my Pre fell apart and looked like it was 5 years old after a couple short months.

    It might be a good news. Right now I am not sure which mobile operating system shall I choose. There is Android, Windows7 Phone, Symbian, etc.

    sounds good, I´m a fan of HP...but this comes a bit late in opinion, especially when you consider what the competition has been doing in last few months, or even years

    I'll be waiting to see what devices HP comes up with. How they turn out will certainly affect the success of WebOS.

    It probably is good news. Going forward always is.

    webOS, according to the majority of the tech population is a FANTASTIC OS and I don't think it deserved to abruptly die just because of mistakes made by PALM. I'm actually glad that HP picked it up. I figure, if anyone could bring it back to life, it would be them. Go figure that 4 Mobile OS's would be too much in this industry but competiton is never a bad thing (And NO I'm not counting Maemo or MeeGo or whatever the hell Nokias new OS is). If I could get webOS on a preferred carrier here in Chicago, I think I'd try it. It seems to have a great Developer Community as well.

    Now there are so many OS in mobile also. In one way people has few option to go for any OS but in another way it might make ppl confuse..

    Do people get confused whey buying a car? I mean there far more brands and models out there.

    So, more choices do give consumers the chance to make a more 'informed choice' provided they do bother to study what options are available, which is the best fit for their price range.
