Hardware, Embedded Systems Major bombshell, and sorry, but this certainly requires a breaking tag as well: HP has announced it is discontinuing operations for webOS devices - effective immediately. Just like that... The TouchPad and Pre 3 are dead. Eh. Raise your hands if this brings back those painful memories of that infamous 'Focus Shift'. In addition, the company also announced its intention to sell its personal computer business.

I don't understand why they finished the HP Pre 3 and put it up for pre-order and then announce they are going to drop it. How will that clear the inventory?

Same for the Touchpad, Best Buy wants to sent them back, HP tells them to wait, releases a better version and now this.
