PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Heck yes. This is one fine way to toast the weekend, ain't it? HP has just announced it's going to release webOS under an open source license. While the company will cease making hardware for the platform for now, it will continue development on it together with the open source community. Hey Access, you listening? Update: More good news: HP's CEO just told The Verge that HP will be putting webOS on hardware after all - tablets!

No much else HP could do...

I think Thom interprets this correctly. Given their current position, there's little else HP could do with WebOS, other than attempt to sell it. Man, to think that only a little over a year ago, HP bought the thing for $1.8 billion and now they're reduced to this. Well, maybe it'll work for them ...
