I was reading yet another article about the Pre today, and something hit me. Could it be, that the Palm Pre’s WebOS is actually the Foleo OS tweaked for a new device format? The reason this came to me was that I was reading an article recently and saw this quote:
The company plans to establish a WebOS ecosystem that goes “well beyond our base.”
I mean, if the OS was originally written for a totally different device, WebOS would be well positioned to do exactly that. There are other hints as well but rather than speculate I’d like to turn it over to you.
What do you guys think? What evidence is out there that proves/disproves the theory? If it is true, is this a good thing? A bad thing? Does it matter at all?
I look forward to hearing your ideas and opinions!DISCLAIMER: I’m in no way comparing the failure of the Foleo with the Palm Pre’s prospects for success. I’m more interested from a techical/business/marketing POV and I’m wondering if anyone else has had the same thought!
