Perfect opportunity for HTC

by Sisyphus    Aug 19, 2011, 10:05 AM

This is indeed a perfect time for HTC to buy WebOS, if they want to shoot themselves in the foot.

While WebOS is a fantastic product to those that are in the know, general public perception doesn't understand that. People are not going to buy a phone, no matter how nice the hardware, that has not had any sucess for the last couple of years.

HTC made their name with Android. Remember all of their options with Windows 6.x? Horrible..

In order to make WebOS a viable option in the marketplace they need to figure out how to make it as versatile as the rest of the sucessful OS's. Without 3 party app support, WebOS is dead in the water.
