Why HP's WebOS on multiple platforms is good

Comments Filter:
  • Apple really isn't there in the corporate world, but the iPad is already proving quite a good Trojan. Fortunately for HP and Google, the sync between iOS and OS X is still a bit of a joke - iTunes? - in the corporate IT world. If HP can tell managements - as appears to be the case - that they have a long term replacement path for Windows desktops which will continue to support legacy applications, while at the same time having a platform which will provide IT with a single system from phones to thin clients
    • I am looking forward to WebOS. I think its going to be big since its totally geared towards business. Apple doesn't seem to be geared towards business at all.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
