The smartphone world must be even more volatile than we all thought. You see, HP, the guys who purchased Palm recently, have announced that they are discontinuing WebOS phones and tablets.
Excerpt from the HP press release:
HP reported that it plans to announce that it will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones. HP will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward.
HP say they are looking at options. Perhaps license WebOS to other manufacturers?
Whatever, it looks like the lines just got redrawn again. RIP, WebOS?
