HP Discontinues webOS Handsets, Touchpad, and Entire Ecosystem

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.
