HP & Intel open Palm sale talks; webOS printers still in pipeline

HP is still quietly shopping webOS around among with other Palm assets, according to sources, but insisting that potential buyers of the platform agree to license it back for use in future HP printers. Intel has just entered discussions with HP, a source close to the negotiations spilled to VentureBeat, while Qualcomm - despite sidestepping any suggestions of interest in webOS - is also said to be still in the running.

HP TouchPad Go 7-inch WebOS tablet emerges

HP TouchPad Go 7-inch WebOS tablet emerges

When HP first launched its 10-inch TouchPad webOS tablet, it was planning a follow-up with a smaller 7-inch model called the TouchPad Go. Unfortunately, with HP's abrupt decision to scrap the entire webOS ecosystem back in August, it's unlikely that we'll be seeing the TouchPad Go hitting the market. But we do get a glimpse at what could have been with several photos of the device surfacing today.

Rumor: HP considers WebOS sale again

Rumor: HP considers WebOS sale again

So far, WebOS has failed at every turn. The operating system failed at Palm when the company tried to put it inside a new smartphone. HP paid big money for Palm after that failure to the tune of $1.2 billion just to get WebOS. HP turned around and tossed the OS onto a tablet only to see it fail miserably and leave the market after only about a month on sale. The only mild success that WebOS has recorded was when the HP Touchpad tablets went on the sub-$100 fire sale.

HP may completely shutdown WebOS after all

HP may completely shutdown WebOS after all

According to the Guardian, internal HP sources have revealed that the company will be shutting down WebOS. HP had just confirmed yesterday that it will be keeping its PC business, reversing plans to spin-off the PSG division, and although it had insisted back in August that it would continue to support the WebOS software, a complete shutdown of the division looks to be imminent.

Rumor: Head of webOS dev relations to leave HP

Rumor: Head of webOS dev relations to leave HP

I never really understood why HP thought buying Palm for $1.2 billion simply to get hands on webOS was a good idea. Palm was unable to mount anything resembling a fight against Android and iOS in the smartphone OS wars making webOS an also ran at best. Still HP plunked down big cash, revamped webOS slightly and tossed it onto the market inside the TouchPad only to see the tablet fail miserably.

HP webOS still heading to printer range says insider

HP webOS still heading to printer range says insider

After the fail of the HP tablet that ran webOS, many of us assumed that HP would take a hint and the OS was dead. Apparently, that isn’t the case with a spokesperson telling Pocket-lint that the firm would be putting webOS inside its printer line still. I just don’t see any OS inside a printer taking off and this idea seems as destined to fail as the tablet was. The statement was made to Pocket-lint in Dublin at the HP Impact event.

Amazon close to Palm buy claims HP insider

Amazon close to Palm buy claims HP insider

Amazon has been tipped as the latest potential suitor for what remains of Palm, with insider sources at HP claiming the mega-retailer is close to finalizing a deal. HP is reportedly looking to rid itself of Palm as soon as it can, VentureBeat's tipster tells them, and while there are apparently "a handful of contenders" interested, it's Amazon that's closest to handing over the cash. However, it's unclear from the leaks whether Amazon would be buying Palm's hardware business, the webOS platform, or both.

HP hawked PC business to Samsung and LG in 2010

HP hawked PC business to Samsung and LG in 2010

HP shopped its PC business around to Samsung, LG and others late last year, it's been alleged, pushing the idea that the PSG (Personal Systems Group) would compliment other consumer electronics offerings of rival firms. While HP only publicly revealed its plans to spin off the PSG last month, a CNET source claims that the company was canvassing potential Korean suitors months in advance. However, it seems HP's sales skills fell short.

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

This week at Samsung's Galaxy S II announcement event in New York City, Vice President of Samsung's Consumer & Enterprise Services Gavin Kim spoke briefly with SlashGear on a couple of rather relevant subjects: Samsung's future with webOS (or lack thereof) and the future of the Galaxy S II in the USA. Having a keen sense of what the press and the public might have a wild heyday with as far as official statements go, Kim refrained from making any breaking fact drops or, as I might call it, Electropolitical gaffes. Instead Kim reinforced our already strong faith in the Samsung Telecommunications brand by noting that it was the market that decided where Samsung would make its next set of moves.

HP to split webOS team as software enters incubator division

HP to split webOS team as software enters incubator division

HP apparently intends to split the webOS Global Business Unit into two, pushing the webOS software side over to the Office of Strategy and Technology while the ex-Palm hardware arm stays a part of the Personal Systems Group. The division, leaked by two internal HP emails passed to PreCentral, will leave HP free to license off webOS to other companies without the competition of the same group developing devices with it. Alternatively, it could be a simpler way for HP to close the door on its webOS hardware altogether.
