Ditch making hardware and let WebOS be used on other manufactuerer's phones. Sounds like a good strategy to me. webOS is an amazing OS...just Palm making hardware wasn't cutting it.

HTC would be a good fit to buy Palm. Ditch the crappy hardware and leave the web OS intact. Or some body suggested the idea of using the web OS and using the concept to create a new skin for android that would give you the apps to compete and a kick ass operating system.

Did we not see this coming? Don't get me wrong, I like Palm as a company, but I think what hurt them is keeping up with the Market. WebOS was a step in the right direction but they needed that in 2008. In 2009 they were playing catch up to all the other companies. They were very slow to be innovative and application development for WebOS has had a very slow take off, and when users look at the Iphone that has limitless apps, and Android Market . Not to leave out Blackberry App World (which isn't doing all that well either). It was bound to not end good. They waited to long in my opinion to be creative and that seriously hurt them, so I saw this coming. Sad because they were a good company.

I love Blackberry but App World sucks! And Web OS really isnt that good, yea it's neat lookin and has a nice "feel to it" but every Pre or Pixi Plus sold in my stores comes back...
