HP Discontinues webOS Platform

On Thursday, HP announced that it would discontinue the production of the TouchPad and other tablets and smartphones based on the webOS operating system. Instead, it “will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward” by selling or licensing the technology. However, that decision is likely to affect few developers, because a recent report found that only 18 percent of developers were interested writing apps for the TouchPad.

The same day, HP also announced that it was considering spinning off its PC business and buying software vendor Autonomy.
