I'm in shock. Today, HP announced that they want to get rid of its webOS platform as well as the TouchPad hardware and Pre smartphone. I'm shocked. Don't get me wrong, HP's TouchPad wasn't perfect and looked outdated a bit on the hardware side but on the software side, there is a lot to love to the webOS UI.
This seems so sudden. HP just confirmed last week that the price reduction on its TouchPad (100$ off bringing the device at 399$ for 16 gb, wifi) was permanent and Pre3 began shipping in Europe.
Now webOS is up for sale. Basically. I'm shocked. There is no better way to kill something like HP just did with Palm and webOS.
