Who needs support? Besides, once android is ported it will be open season as far as apps go.

I hope they make an android emulator. I would hate to get rid of Web OS on here, I love it.

Even after saying that I must admit though it seems like a good deal
I wanted mine for a couch sitting internet appliance. It works perfectly well as that. Anything else is a plus.

I agree completely. Having never really used webos I wasnt sure what to expect, but I'm loving it. The multitasking makes android and ios look ridiculous.

I'm loving gestures as well. Its a shame this never took off. It has a ton of promise.

HP made a statement that they will keep supporting WebOS and that they want to license it out to other companies. So at least in the short term there is going to be some support, but how much, I guess we are going to find out as time goes on.

Valid point (thanks for re-affirming what I said) ... as others said, **** support if it works as a web browser for under $200.

WebOS was a dead os anyway. I'm sure it has its strong points but the non ipad sector of tablets is spread too thin for it to really do well.
