HP confirms what we already knew: No Windows Phone 7 devices from them

I didn’t post about this earlier because I’ve actually already reported about it more than 12 days ago(!) but it seems like nobody really cared back then (wonder why…). Here’s HP‘s chief Strategy Officer, Shane Robison confirmation that the company is no longer a Windows Phone 7 partner and is focusing on WebOS instead.

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.
