Makes sense... They`ll use it for slates and stuff...

That quote doesn`t imply they will never make smartphones, but i think their priority is putting it on their Slate first.

And with this, the rumour that the Slate will be webOS based gains new life.

Yeah, I saw that on there yesterday, and was like wtf...this coming from the company that kept pumping out WinMob iPaq phones as recently as a year or two ago.

I don't care about tablets, maybe this why one of the lead WebOS UI designers jumped ship to Google.

Hey man, I like your posts and all, but I don't think you are THAT important in the big scheme of things.
