Well, HP, Fuck you. Fuck your business plan. Fuck your total lack of customer service. Fuck your lack of foresight.
I hope that HTC or Samsung starts making WebOS devices. I hope the crappy IOS and unwieldy Android OS both wind up on the ash heap of history.
So the great tablet I was so happy to get is discontinued. The device I dreamed of ever since I saw WebOS on the Palm Pre.
Now what? There will certainly be a total lack of support for this thing now. Developers are going to run from the platform in droves. Bugs will go unrepaired. A QUARTER MILLION of these things are left in Best Buy's inventory because of shitty marketing, lackluster hardware, and the release of what was in essence a beta product before it was truly ready.
Will HP try to fix this? No. Instead they will declare the whole thing a failure and drop out of an expanding market. They will give in to the second-rate IOS and Android. Damn, they're even being outlived by the pathetically obsolete Blackberry.
Now what do I do with this Touchpad?
