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 best mobile 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.
