WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.
Asia Tech business thinkers like Michael Kauh, research analyst at Canalys , said the current PC market is competitive and "very difficult to survive" by offering only traditional desktops or mobile computers. Therefore, a tablet strategy is necessary for PC makers to compete in the market.
Kauh noted that it would be expensive for HP to maintain WebOS as a platform when it had discontinued production of such devices. Hence, if it does decide to keep the OS, it will need to offer products to generate sufficient profits in this space, he said.
Kauh underscored that it would be "very important" for HP to own and control its own OS.
He explained that while Android is open source, which allows tablet makers to customize the user interface, there is no way to ascertain if the OS will still be available in the market or remain free in the future.
And from this writer Francisco De Jesús I would recommend the following for Building the TouchPad 2:0 Tablet.
DEVELOPERS APPS SHARE: Give them 80 % profit share. If you need to get most developers just give them 90%.
PARTNERSHIP: Partner Joint Venture with Samsung for a new webOS 2.0 light and thin tablet hardware with:
CPU: Quad-core chip. 1.5 Ghz each (4 cores)
STORAGE: 32B and 64GB (check the latest tech for flash and ssd or a new one)
CAMERAS: front 2.0 , rear 5 mpxls with led flash
USB PORTS: One 2.0 and one 3.0
HDMI port: One.
Bezels: For the phone webOS gestures on the tablet. (Don´t miss this one, it was a failure you did not include the essentials of webOS phone gestures on the Touchpad)
Keep Touch to share but now for any phone brand.
NFC TECHNOLOGY: to share with any tablet or phone, and NFC speakers.
Now you have been encouraged, and given the ideas. Come on HP you can do it with webOS.
