Is the Market too Crowded for webOS to be Successful?

Is the Market too Crowded for webOS to be Successful?

Let’s start off by remembering that the smartphone market is still relatively early. Even though it is one of the hottest topics around, smartphones as a whole still only represent less than 30% of the total global mobile phone market.

Right now RIM, Apple and their iOS and a host of Android vendors dominate the smart phone sector. Windows Phone 7 is on the far fringe of this market and HP’s webOS devices still farther yet. So the real question is in a market dominated right now by three companies is there room for more? The short answer is yes and here is why.

The iPad 2 isn't even official yet, but already the speculation over the third-generation version of the Apple tablet has begun in earnest. Prompted by Daring Fireball's John Gruber predicting that HP might struggle with the Touchpad because "If my theory is right, they’re not only going to be months behind the iPad 2, but if they slip until late summer, they might bump up against the release of the iPad 3," TechCrunch sources stepped up with the supposedly solid news that there would be two iPad refreshes in 2011: the iPad 2, imminently, and then the iPad 3 this fall.

Today we were treated to a presentation by HP that might completely turn webOS around, out of the dark spaces of everyone's doubt centers and into a very plausible option place for many soon-to-be seekers of tablets in this new market. The tablet in question is the HP TouchPad, running webOS 3.0 and looking like not a half bad idea for a workstation on the go. We decided to match it up against a couple contenders, first the Motorola XOOM Android tablet, now the Apple iPad. How does the TouchPad measure up? You be the judge.

TouchPad Introduces webOS Video Calling, Integrated Seamlessly with Phone Calls

We're live at the webOS 3.0 / Palm / HP event today covering all the news that's blasting forth from the groups, all of it adding up to what seems to be the truth - webOS isn't dead. One of the more interesting features is a touch-to-share function that works between the Pre3 and the TouchPad, and more than likely between every other set of webOS devices in the future so long as they have webOS 3.0. This feature works to share everything from URLs to phone calls, allowing you to use the screen size you need when you need it.
