In the News Hewlett-Packard Co. , the world's largest computer maker, is in talks to buy [database search software vendor] Autonomy Corp. for about $10 billion and plans to spin off its personal-computer business, people with direct knowledge of the matter said. Is this an indicator of the Post PC Era?

Maybe now they can. Google buying Motorola Mobile brings a lot of uncertainty in Android world. Court cases against Android phone makers, low margings. Some vendor might take the gamble and license webOS.

If HP stops making webOS phones it makes it saver to license the OS as vendors won't be at a disadvantage making their own product without having to compete with HP itself.
