Wow. HP is really in a bad way. Got the feeling this is a dead horse, and those of us that used it should just enjoy the memories......

I love my Pre 3 and WebOS. Hasnt fallen short of any iOS or Android device. All these are statements to diminish the value of the OS to jack up the value of others.

That is why they should have taken their time. Companies are so fast to get something out that is half of what it should be. Patience is a virtue and HP should have done that with WebOS. I think they would have provided a much more compelling product if they took the time. Hopefully their recent move with webOS will certainly provide something truly beautiful in the future.
