HP unveils the HP Veer and HP Pre 3 webOS smartphones - read the full textItís been a long waiting, but finally the results of the Palm acquisition by HP is bearing fruit. HP just presented the HP Veer and HP Pre 3 smartphones, as well as the HP TouchPad tablet, all running webOS. It's been almost a year since HP acquired Palm for $1.2 billion and we're finally seeing...

WebOS is the best OS I have used and I have used them all. Palm and now HP have kept killing it with silly marketing mistakes. HP must realise that they do not have the consumer bas that apple has. Palm didn't realise this and release the OS on some very rubbish hardware. On top of this, they locked themselves into one service provider. This type of marketing is fine when you are Apple and hundreds of Appleites are ready to line up infront your store all night waithing to have the first product. It is not going to work for a computer company who are not known for their mobile phones. HP had updated the harware to what is now acceptable but it remains to be seen if they kill it again by locking it to one provider.

Thats is what true multitasking is all about. I personally think that HP needs a strong marketing strategy to be able to compete to the likes of iOS and android. keep it up HP.

Oh come on you have a press event for this, the Pre range needs
a total change in all areas these phones are making a point of not even being in the race.

But on a side note the tablet looks interesting

too much OSs. iOS, Android, Symbian, WP7, WebOS, Meego, Bada, Blackberry OS, WinMo. It's getting more confusing that which OS will be perfect for us.
