What does Apple have to do with this? While I admit Palm had some capital issues when dealing with webOS, specifically getting it on decent hardware, HP just dragged their feet and did everything not to get webOS out there.

There's a huge following to Palm/webOS, even after they've been given the shaft for the past 6 years. Long wait times between updated hardware. Updates to software that never show.

I honestly think their current CEO had this planned from the beginning. A lot of people loved the Pre3, and even more webOS in general, me being one of them, even though I'm an Apple fanboi. If iPhone ever came to Sprint, I didn't know what I'd get, but for now, I was webOS all the way. Now, I'm skipping Android and waiting for iOS.

HP did this to themselves. The only thing Apple did was give them some decent competition. Had HP wanted to, they could have been a big player in the market.
