See the all-touch webOS phone that almost was
We hate to re-open the wounds of webOS fans, but a design company working for HP just released a beautiful video render of Stingray, the all-touch webOS phone that was in development for AT&T. According to The Verge the phone was cancelled by AT&T because it didn’t pack LTE radios. Obviously whatever chance it had to be released on another carrier went down the tubes after HP canned webOS hardware last year.

The video is a basic “turntable” style render that lets you see the device from all sides. It reveals a phone that shares a strong aesthetic with the Pre line, although they seem to have adopted a flatter back, which would have produced a thinner device (no doubt possible due to the lack of a sliding mechanism and no physical keyboard).

So the question is, would you have considered a touch-only webOS device if they had shipped this? Take a gander at the video and then let us know in the comments section below.

Update: As you can see below, the company who uploaded this to Vimeo has made it private. We'll keep an eye out to see if another video rears its head. In the meantime, you'll have to settle for the two screen grabs below, courtesy of webOS Nation.
