Earlier today HP’s CEO Meg Whitman appeared at the HP Global Partner Conference, and she brought some words of the phone market. For those unfamiliar, HP open-sourced the dead webOS, and is now hoping that it will gain some traction. Whitman thinks that webOS will once again have a place in the phone market within the next 2-5 years, and thinks it may even replace Android.
She claims that since Google acquired Motorola, it will lead to Android becoming a closed-source operating system. Once that happens, she believes that webOS will become the next big open-source mobile operating system. These claims seem to be a little off, but we’ll let her say whatever she wants. What do you think is next for Android? Could webOS replace Android? Let us know in the comments!
