HP Trying To Have It Three Ways

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Aug 13, 2010.

  1. Looks like HP is working on mobile devices running three different OSes: the
    WebOS it acquired when it bought Palm, Android, and Windows Seven
    <http://computerworld.co.nz/news.nsf/technology/hp-details-tablet-plans-confirms-windows-7-and-webos-versions>.

    Of the three, which one do you think is most likely to be dropped because
    it’s useless in this market?

    Seems pretty clear the answer is Windows.

    What’s a notable omission from this list? Windows Phone 7. Why? Because
    Microsoft is targeting that specifically at phones, it’s not suitable for
    non-phone mobile devices (media players, tablets).

    In an era where the up-and-coming contenders (Apple’s i-thingies and
    Android) vaunt their versatility in running on a range of devices, Microsoft
    is resolutely sticking to a limited, inflexible, one-trick pony.
