Was this guy really that important?

Palm's WebOS is brilliant for sure, but this guy's track record seems a little shallow. Helio is nothing I would be proud of, and the Sidekicks were..... I mean, it's the Sidekick team that is responsible for the Kin.

Leaving HP-Palm for Android is probably not a smart move. What's going to happen to Android is the same thing that happened to Pocket PC's / WinMO - the lack of differentiation is going to take its toll on hardware manufacturers (willing to bet HTC is the last one standing) .

HP knows this damn well. Willing to guess in the fall when HP begins a marketing blitz it's the beginning of the end for Android, because all of Android's marketing advantages over the iPhone are things WebOS does better than Android.

I'm excited to see what HP has in store for WebOS!

So they already know each other.

Having the right people in the right places is key. A good example would be Sprint and Dan Hesse. Is Mr. Hesse that important to Sprint?
If Mr. Duarte brings new ideas and energy to the Android platform then Android will continue its current momentum on all carriers and all manufacturers except a handful of holdouts.

Android and most importantly the Open Handset Alliance is an entire industry against these few holdouts. The holdouts cannot hope to match the deep pockets of everyone involved in this alliance.
