A Window opportunity for HP webOS Open source is about to open, if MS goes further with the Surface.
At this time some Microsoft partners are beginning to feel uncomfortable with the Surface tablet announced in June, and might look for new OS opportunities, instead to keep going with Windows 8.
Acer CEO JT Wang told the that Microsoft's plans to launch its own tablet in October would be a "negative for the worldwide ecosystem" in computing and beg the software giant to rethink the move.
"We have said think it over. Think twice," Wang is quoted as saying. "It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at so please think twice."
Wang went on to suggest that if Microsoft moves ahead with its tablet plans, the Taiwan-based Acer might replace the software giant as a partner.
"If Microsoft is going to do hardware business, what should we do? Should we still rely on Microsoft, or should we find other alternatives?," he is quoted as saying.
HP should take advantage of this scenario and target around 24 OEM`s manufacturers worldwide to offer them as soon webOS Open Source 1.0 is ready in September 2012.
