Hardware, Embedded Systems Major bombshell, and sorry, but this certainly requires a breaking tag as well: HP has announced it is discontinuing operations for webOS devices - effective immediately. Just like that... The TouchPad and Pre 3 are dead. Eh. Raise your hands if this brings back those painful memories of that infamous 'Focus Shift'. In addition, the company also announced its intention to sell its personal computer business.

Hey now you're changing the game. You said it would be the same as with the iPhone and Android will "dominate" That to me means that Android tablets will have a greater share than the iPad. 30% is nothing if the iPad has 65% (Windows maybe 5%?). That's not much of a prediction or even a big leap from today.


Uhm, it took Android 3 years to dominate the smartphone market and reach the 50% it's at now. The 'new' tablet market is about one year old now. In another year, Android on tablets will be where Android on phones was one year ago - about 30%.

So yeah.
