[Discuss] HP Discards Touchpad and WebOS

Several sources confirm that the HP Touchpad is dead. This also includes
all WebOS devices.
Today HP <> revealed that they would be
announcing that it will completely discontinue operations for all webOS
<> devices. This affects the HP
TouchPad <> and all
webOS handsets. This does not mean that webOS
<> will be cancelled
altogether and forever, though it certainly doesn?t bode well for those
who?ve invested in the HP/webOS combination in the meantime. This comes
after less than stellar sales on the TouchPad and a request from Best
Buy for HP to take back all their tablets.

I guess we saw its swan song last night at the BLU meeting.
