News: HP Discontinuing All WebOS Products

When HP acquired Palm in April 2010, many hoped that this would breathe new life into WebOS and finally provide the platform with a chance to gain traction in the competitive mobile market. Sadly, a little over a year later, it appears that it hasn't worked out that way.

Following abrupt price cuts and rumored poor sales for the HP TouchPad, as well as HP considering possibly spinning off its PC division into a separate company, HP confirmed in a press release today that it is discontinuing all current WebOS tablets and smartphones.

While HP maintains that it will keep options open in terms of future opportunities for the WebOS, this announcement could easily be interpreted as the end of the platform.
