Should HTC buy WebOS?

Cher Wang, chairwoman of HTC, said her company is currently considering the purchase of its own mobile operating system, according to Focus Taiwan. However, she said the Taiwanese company is in no rush to make a deal.

Specifically, Wang admitted that HTC has eyed buying webOS from Hewlett-Packard, which the company may sell as it looks to focus on more profitable software and services. HP acquired webOS in an acquisition from Palm in a $1.2 billion deal in April of 2010.

"We have given it thought and we have discussed it internally, but we will not do it on impulse," Wang reportedly said of buying webOS from HP.

The chairwoman touted her company's ability to differentiate its smartphones from competitors by implementing its own "HTC Sense" user interface. Sense has been used on HTC's Windows Mobile-based smartphones, and is also found on the company's newer Android-powered devices.

The management team of HTC is a conservative team. They know that merge a copany is easy , but it' s not easy to fully uitlise and leverage the merged company. Simens and Benq is not a good example. HTC has find a way in established it's own brand-HTC and seels good on the market. It should stabilize the position under the high competitive market and conservatively select a software partener to move on.

For my personal opioion, no matter how HTC climb the value chain from OEM, ODM to OBM, it always M(manufacture) at end. Unlike Apple, HP, RIM who can outsource the manufacture portion, HTC will always leverage its manufacture benefits. To purchase WebOS couldn't strength the HTC orginal advantages, but introduces too wide product line load and potentional fierece peer competition.
