There was a lot of nervousness among WebOS developers when the HP CEO make statements that sounded like HP wasn’t going to pursue the Smartphone market, but this video interview with the HP CTO says differently. He basically states that HP is going into the Smarphone market and pretty much leaving Palm intact and running as usual. What HP brings to the WebOS effort, is bigger marketing and more support for the promotion of WebOS Smartphones and devices.
For developers like myself, this is very encouraging news. I can’t wait to see new HP/Palm phones come out in addition to tablets and other WebOS-powered devices. An exciting time for mobile developers.
