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.

Perhaps they may be talking to Samsung, LG et al to sell the Web OS and the patent portfolio. The PC business can be purchased by some Asian buyers from China, Taiwan, India, et al.
