HP CEO: webOS will be better than iOS and Android

Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman recently said in an interview that even though the HP TouchPad failed and was discontinued only two months after it was released,  HP  “will be back in [the tablet] business. We’re coming back into the market with a Windows 8 tablet.” She also went on to state that they are “going to build another operating system that has huge advantages, in my view, over iOS, which is a closed system, [and] Android, which is incredibly fragmented and may ultimately be more closed with [Google’s] acquisition of Motorola Mobility.” Only time will tell if Whitman’s predictions for the future will come true and have HP competing with the iPad and other Android tablets.
