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 hope they release it to see what the nerds do with it.


Doubt it, as they specifically said they want to stop with the hardware and still make money on the webos-software.

So they won't release it as open source, unless it turns out after a couple of years no-one would buy it
