Is it Too Little, Too Late for hp Palm?

Five future Palm devices pop up in webOS 2.0 code? | BGR:

“Well, the folks over at WebOS Internals have been pouring through SFR’s webOS 2.0 code and have stumbled upon five device code-names: Stingray, Mantaray, Broadway, Windsor and Roadrunner (Palm Pre 2). “

I often wonder if the ship has sailed for Palm WebOS. The launch was less than spectacular and the take up on the devices was also pretty poor. And to top it all off they were bought by another company that doesn’t really know where it’s going in this field. Hp did very little to further the iPAQ brand, releasing serial failures of Moto Q clones. Their netbooks efforts have been abysmal and even on the on the Desktop/Notebook side of the business, they continue to confuse customers with never ending variants of the same machines under both Compaq and hp brands. Unless they come up with something as awesome as the original Handspring Treo 90, they should just give HTC or Samsung a call and try to make a deal.
