Until more evidence is produced, its a lumper vs splitter debate.

More than likely a small population of Homo erectus made it to the island and never left. Its a case of allopatric speciation.

The shape of the skulls is more closely related to Homo erectus than they are to Homo sapiens.

New skull study shows 'hobbit' is not human - www.abovetopsecret.com...

a quick quote:

The question as to whether the hobbit was human or another species remains controversial. Some scientists claim the hobbit was a diminutive human that suffered from some type of disease that causes microcephaly, which results in abnormal growth of the brain and causes the cranium to be much smaller than the normal human cranium. But Dr. Baab and co-author Kieran McNulty, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Minnesota, believe their findings counter the microcephaly theory.
