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.

If you bought it at BestBuy (USA) then you can give it back inside a 30 day period.
Normally you have to pay a restocking fee of 10% but if a product is discontinued there should be none.
But I would rather pay 10% instead of keeping a dead product...
