    HP Executive Vice President Todd Bradley just said at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco that HP, “won’t license WebOS” to other companies.

    Bradley also said when questioned about whether HP is trying to be like Apple by offering a single closed platform across multiple devices: “emulating Apple or Dell is not part of our strategy,” for what he believes will be a $40 billion tablet market.

    Bradley also said that HP is innovating both through internal research and acquisitions, and that the company grew the last five years, “HP has dramatically transformed as a company,” said Bradley. Bradley finished up saying that HP has, “become a big services company as well as a product company.”
