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.

This is a leadership failure, not a product failure.
Maybe they should bring old CEO Mark Hurd back. and Spin current CEO off with the iPaq line.

I wonder if there is enough WebOS love and money within management that could lead to a management buyout of the WebOS unit?
