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.

Things can change drastically when the quarterly figures come out and even more so at fiscal end when everyone is jockying for best "I'm pro-active; keep me" demonstration before the restructuring. Wheeee.. big business..

If they end up abandoning WebOS, I hope they release it to see what the nerds do with it.
