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.
