Amid all the rumors concerning the future of HP's (NYSE: HPQ ) acquisition of Palm (Nasdaq: PALM ) and what will happen to WebOS, HP's Senior Exec Rahul Sood came out in his blog and tried to assure WebOS fans that everything is going to be alright.
While it is certain that the merger will take some time to fit with both companies, we're fairly certain that the R&D teams are already working together in producing a new generation of products. Palm now has [the money] to continue with the development of WebOS, while HP gained precious IP and patent portfolio that will even allow the company to stomp on companies that claim leadership with their own patents, such as the case of multi-touch.
HP's Rahul Sood, CTO of Gaming Divison came out on his blog with the following statement:
This message goes out to all fans of Web OS. Stop worrying and speculating. When the deal closes I'm sure you'll hear about lots of great things from HP, until then just know this... We all absolutely love it, we love using Web OS. It's simply fantastic. Instead of worrying you should think about developing Apps on it as soon as possible.
Have a great weekend!
