HP Kills WebOS!
What are your thoughts on these news?
I don't think webOS is dead but the Pre-line and tablets are gone. Surely, HTC might be interested since Google has Motorola in it's hip pocket. Samsung has Bada. LG has... well, nothing but Android and WP7. Maybe LG would take a stab at licensing webOS. Such a great OS but shoddy hardware. I say this as a former Sprint Pre user.
HP will not likely make inroads into either the automobile or the appliance business as all the manufacturers are already lined up with software providers. Good luck making inroads into services markets dominated by the likes of IBM, Siemens and others.
One final comment. I noticed the phone, tablet and computer lines were all specifically mentioned but no specific mention of the printer line. Perhaps printers are included in computers? In any event, it's a sad day.
