    I had several Palm Treos in the past and other than relatively weak cameras, I thought they were great.  Palm OS was simple & straight forward, synced my contacts/calendar to my PC & had a touch screen long before it was trendy … I hope it sticks around in some form.

    I’m wondering where did you get your sources?   I just received an email on August 19 directly from HP ( I’m a developer) and HP’s exact words stated “We will continue to support, innovate and develop the webOS App Catalog.” “Our intent is to enhance our merchandising and presentation of your great products and to continue to build our webOS app ecosystem.”     Who says they are not pursuing licensing?  I really hope you are not just speculating because this is the type of propaganda that contributed to HP’s failure to sell Touchpad’s in the first place.

      No propaganda necessary. This was a hatchet job by Leo Apotheker and the board. 6 months between product announcements and actual sales? Lackadaisical marketing? Putting the Pre 3 up for sale the day before discontinuing everything? Calling this amateur hour would be giving them credit for trying. Mark Hurd would have never allowed this to happen.

        Firing Mark Hurd was really dumb–for real
        It was really, really, really, really so dumb 
        So dumb, so dumb, so dumb, so
