i bet for HP as they have the biggest coverage around the world, can reach to almost all markets. Not just US, Korea or Japan focused initial reveals, they can rapidly reach anywhere at world if can create brilliant global marketing. If speed of app-sore for webOS levets to constant, no doubt they will be hard-push rival

One thing HP might have going for them is all the past Palm users. Also the WebOS has a semi-unique position as not being locked into Microsoft, Apple, or Google..

Who will be #3...RIM, Nokia/Windows or HP WebOS? I think HP has the most remote chances with the smallest ecosystem and installed base and mobile clout.

Looks like everyone wants to make this hotcake smarpthone or mobile business. There are already bug players who have monopoly in the market. HP is definitely very late in the battle but lets see what it has to offer. Competetion is going to be very very tough, but mobile business is one that will definitely be lucrative but it all deppends on HP whether it just wants to enter the battle or looking for top slots..

Don’t believe the hype. HP already started a marketing campaign and contacted many of its suppliers. I will bet that HP has a game plan in place that will move them up the ladder….Otherwise, why would they let you know what they have done thus far??? Think about it. Remember the when the Internet got started and every said Microsoft was far behind the company Netscape. It is a long way to the finish line.

I wouldnt say this is ideal. However its a fact that without market share its hard to attract app developers. So what I would recommend is to sell a stripped down version of their new tablet for low prices only in developing markets to generate market share. And sell the high end versions in developed markets at a higher price.

I wonder if driving a new OS into the tablet and phone markets is viable at this point. In the early days of an industry, sure. But once the lane positions have been established, it's a long uphill battle. Apple and MS both have good position and potential due to their established market positions. Android got in back when the smart phone OS market was still new and fragmented. Android was also around for the first non-Apple tablets. I just can't see a single manufacturer OS making it in the industry at this point, even given HP's size and market clout.

It is truly a very tough field. I think Apple will continue to win. HP will belong to all fought groups. This thing is a commodity and Apple has won the mind game.
