Palm Loses UI Guru
Was this guy really that important?
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.
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.
