Not sure what will happen to WebOS, they’ve also put out more positive press releases:
But Android is the most used mobile/touchscreen OS.
Many people read it as this: Android will be more webapp friendly in the future.
Which can only be a good thing, at least for some section of the developer community.
And who knows, maybe there will be a more cards-like UI for Android too ?
Any unified Android UI would be a good thing I guess, but I doubt it will happen because that is for the manufactures a way to differentiate.
(at least they used to brag about how many PhDs they had on staff some years ago), yet all of their products seem to originate from outside the company. What do those PhDs do (besides provide window dressing PR)?
