I know that's the kind of company I'd bet on.
Why do enterprise customers need tablet devices? What is the advantage to a tablet device running the RIM OS versus whatever desktop operating system the company uses for the rest of their infrastructure? Is RIM going to make another aborted attempt at pushing their app store, or are they betting on a third party to pick up the slack?
Opinions are cheap- let's see some harder facts.
WebOS is a solid OS and HP has a lot of experience making and shipping hardware. There's a lot of potential for integration between WebOS and the other devices they already make: laptops, printers, netbooks, phones, and tablets.
If one is good, two must be better!
I don't have any investment advice re: RIM, but I can say with confidence that we're not downloading their tablet SDK anytime soon.
Blackberry is heading back to enterprise, and that's where it should try to solidify.
Because I just did and I want a quick out ...!?
