PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "'We are working on this,' Ms. Whitman told Fox Business Network in an interview. 'We have to ultimately offer a smartphone because in many countries of the world that would be your first computing device... We are a computing company.'" On the same day the Pre 2 a reader is loaning me arrives in the mail. This is just cruel. Update: "HP Bender Android smartphone appears in benchmark details". Eh.

What a shame - everybody is copying the Palm (ever seen rows and columns of icons you lauch by touching them), and it lays on the dust heap.

Palm, Palm, wherefore are thou Palm??

I don't think WebOS has much of a chance of resurrecting from the hobby world. I agree that they will most likely sell an HP branded Windows 8 phone. HP made some very sweet Windows Mobile devices in the past - IPAQ 8 anyone?

Oops! I guess the person above me no likey IPAQ. Anyone else have a better experience? They also made the Journada - oh and the HP 200LX, they always seemed pretty nice.

Loved my iPaq to death. Completely used it up. One of my favourite devices of all time.

You know what? I still have an iPaq 514 - which I only use as a backup alarm clock sometimes ;) - and I really liked it when I got it (quite a while ago). I was using it for almost 2 years before I switched from it. Some iPAQs were really nice. Man, I feel old.

The HP200LX was a marvelous machine. Good display, nice keyboard, extreme portability, very easy to develop fore - just about any DOS dev-chain was OK. And about 2 weeks of battery life on 2 AA NiMH.
