TechCrunch just posted a summary of an interview with Todd Bradley, the Executive VP for the Personal Systems Group. There are a number of interesting details in the article, but this is what caught my eye:
The strategy with webOS is not just the OS but it’s also to have a consistent interface from phones to tablets, says Bradley. He adds that the main reason HP acquired Palm was for the WebOS. Bradley adds however, that Palm will not license WebOS, as Google has with the Android platform.
He just made WebOS irrelevant in the tablet market by driving away developers. There won't be as many WebOS tablets as Android tablets, so developers would be better off spending their limited funds working on Android apps. And if users can't get the commercial media apps on WebOS, then they'll get an Android tablet instead.
