"I liked what I've seen of HP's Linux-based webOS. Still I did think, given Apple and Android's leading in cutting edge smartphones and tablets, that webOS had much of a shot. Maybe I was wrong.

"The devices, including the tiny HP Veer smartphone; the Pre 3 with its HD video recording and powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm CPU, and the 9.7-inch TouchPad with its Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-CPU APQ8060 1.2-GHz processor and 16 to 32GBs of RAM all sounded and looked great at HP's great webOS device unveiling party."
