athisvwasbprecisely the market where webos. had a future, hopefully Ubuntu mobile will someday provided shurtoeworth doesn't eff it up
isnt it evident
very few people "read" anymore. This is not the case with other media such as music, movies or games.
Microsoft ... bringing in the bloatware in books
Speed benefits when compared to tapes?
I was a kid in Calcutta, India growing up with a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, and I could not get my well meaning father to invest in a microdrive, after he had already plonked some hard earned rupees on a "Compluter friendly" casette recorder, where you could vary the speed of the playback motor, to load programs slightly faster, provided the reading head and the capstan were clean. Can anyone tell me the loading time speed benefits of the micro-drive vis-a-vis std data cassettes in loading up say "Daley Thompson's Decathlon" or "Horace goes Skiing", which btw we all copied from each other using analog tape to tape.
Mark Shuttleworth should visit China
The Chinese govt should really look into Ubuntu touch and fork it for themselves. Honestly Huawei should've just bought the rights to WebOS before LG did, but I suspect HP would've got fingered by Uncle Sam had that happened.
Isn't it open source
Does this mean HP had sold off gram ? Will this influence community development on Openwebos? I have a firesale touchpad and starting and shutting down times does not make it an ideal rtos for a tv platform
Isnt this a sign
Tablet manufacturers (esp Samsung & Sony) should really now pay more attention to Open WebOS. Android was always lacking as a tablet platform, but not WebOS. Sad it didnt have the traction, and HP did far too little, too late. The open source avatar could see the mass adoption rates if it's only given a chance.
If they'd only waited till the sept release for the open webos sdk, they wouldn't have had to pay for microsofts protection racket
How can you omit the LG Optimus One/Net in this list of cheap phones. with a 600/800 mhz proc and a massive 1500 mah batt, decent 320x480 screen and responsive performance it does offer an exceedingly good value for money.
Wonder if Open WebOS has any chances of redemption when it's released in Sept. It's still a brilliant alternativeto the big two already in the tablet space.
The Optimus Juggernaut starts rolling
This is the phone which saved LG Electronics's hiney in the mobile space, and came soon after the ouster of it's former incumbent CEO. The Optimus lineup will triumph in 2011 if the Optimus 2X and Black are any indicators.
Barnes & Noble Nook Color
My vote goes to the Nook Color. It's a clever juxtaposition of an ebook reader and a scaled down tablet with an upcoming app store, all at a terrific price point. It is an impressive step forward in bridging the 2 worlds.
