PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

Also, HP has stated that they won't simply drop support for WebOS. I suspect at the least, they'll sell it to someone who wants to enter this market (or is in the market, and wants a unique edge... HTC or maybe Samsung?)


That'd be interesting. You'd think they'd want to do more than shelve it after all their investment.
