Default It's Official: HP Not Making Windows Phone 7 Devices

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/24/hp-not-making-windows-phone-7-devices-focusing-on-webos-instead/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/07/24/...-webos-instead/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"No big surprise here, but HP Personal Systems Group VP Todd Bradley just flat-out confirmed to CNBC that HP will not be making any Windows Phone 7 devices, preferring instead to focus on the newly-acquired webOS for its line of smartphones."</em></p><p><object width="400" height="380" data="http://plus.cnbc.com/rssvideosearch/action/player/id/1550389746/code/cnbcplayershare" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" id="cnbcplayer"><param name="type" value="application/x-shockwave-flash" /><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="quality" value="best" /><param name="scale" value="noscale" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><param name="salign" value="lt" /><param name="src" value="http://plus.cnbc.com/rssvideosearch/action/player/id/1550389746/code/cnbcplayershare" /><param name="name" value="cnbcplayer" /></object></p><p>I think we all saw this coming the moment HP bought Palm, but now we know for sure. Let's be honest though: will it matter? HP has struggled to be relevant in the smartphone industry for years - their PDA devices were impressive, but they never made a successful transition to hybrid PDA/phones. I don't think this is a significant loss for Microsoft in the Windows Phone space. What do you think?</p>
