Last May, I had predicted that if they played their cards right, Palm/HP could challenge Apple at its own game. Since then I’ve been wondering if I should ever bother making more predictions, since nothing seemed to be happening from the Palm division.
Sure there’s plenty of challenges ahead for WebOS, especially on the app/developer ecosystem side. But there’s still hope I can continue to moonlight as a tech pundit. After all, the same desire to deliver great experiences that runs in Apple’s blood also runs in Palm’s.
You don’t need a WebOS-based device to believe me. Just look at the aesthetics of Palm’s developer portal.
(Now, contrast that with Android’s…)
