Today HP, one of the biggest customer for Microsoft, has confirmed that it has no intention to make Microsoft’s Windows 7 based phones further unlike planned before. Company said instead focus would be on WebOS, a mobile OS which it got after acquiring ‘Palm’ early this year.

In an interview with CNBC, HP’s Todd Bradley, the executive vice president of the company’s Personal Systems Group, stated in no uncertain terms that “we won’t do a Microsoft phone.” This confirms recent reports that HP won’t be making Windows Phone 7 devices.

Bradley said “As we continue to be Microsoft’s largest customer, and as we continue to believe that we will drive innovation with Microsoft, at the same time, I think it’s clear to say that we’re very focused on the customer and giving the customer the experience that’s important to them. We will not do a Linux/Android phone. We won’t do a Microsoft phone.”

Exact;ly before acquiring Palm, HP strongly committed towards Microsoft ambition for Mobile Application business. Being as the biggest customer of Microsoft, HP was procrastinating the tie-up as positive future road map for the company. Moment after aquasition of Palm, HP changed its tune and came out with a statement “we’ve got to work with [Microsoft] to figure out exactly what the roadmap looks like.”

Despite of having potential dangerous for company to bet everything on one, company is left with no other option but WebOS as the acquisition was done at the cost of $1.2 Billion. After going through such decision, HP sees no point of promoting other “competitors” by its own product.

It would be interesting to see Microsoft’s response and HP’s results in future.
