HP will NOT make Windows Phone 7, Focus on WebOS

Based on an Interview with HP executive, it seems all clear that HP will focus on WebOS tablet, make Windows 7 tablet for Enterprise and focus on WebsOS devices, will give Microsoft Phone 7 a miss.

Here is some excerpt from the Interview (copied from Engadget).

Q: Can you make webOS successful with developers when you’re selling Windows Phone 7, maybe Android or Linux at the same time?

A: We continue to be Microsoft’s biggest customer, and we continue to believe we will drive innovation with Microsoft. At the same time, I think it’s clear to say, that we’re very focused on the customer, and giving the customer the experience that’s important to them. We won’t do — will not do a Linux / Android phone. We won’t do a Microsoft phone.

Q: So no Windows Phone 7?

A: We will continue to more broadly deliver the webOS-based phones that are in the market today, and Jon and his team have driven a strong roadmap for the future.

Q: So does that mean you’re going webOS only for phones?

A: For smartphones it does. Our intent is to focus those resources and really make webOS the best OS it can be.
