HP actually needs to offer Cloud Services if webOS Tablets and smartphone will have a fighting chance on the market place.
You can have the bestmobile operating system and you still will fail unless you have a powerful eco-system to support it. Apps, Media and online services need to be baked into the offering. HP has a pretty mobile OS with webOS. The first webOS Tablet dubbed HP TouchPad will launch on July 1st. According to a report on Blillboard, HP is actually ramping up media services for its devices. The TouchPad is supposed to get a music service similar to iTunes in the iCloud.
It sounds like HP is taking the right steps to give webOS a chance to gain market share. HP still needs to get developers behind their platform to fill the webOS app store. This will be more difficult than launching comprehensive cloud services for their platform.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
