HP webOS hardware still a no-go

HP webOS hardware still a no-go

While the good news that webOS as a mobile operating system would now be Open Source did come down the chute with much rejoicing this early afternoon, HP's stance on no future with HP hardware for the OS remains true. As it was announced earlier this summer right before The Great TouchPad Exodus of 2011, HP will no longer be producing hardware with webOS on it natively. This of course doesn't mean that someone couldn't hack a bit of the ol' webOS onto an HP product in the future if they wanted to, but their current status with webOS is the same as the rest of the "other leading operating systems" at the moment.

This week HP announced that their mobile operating system webOS will be contributed to the open source community. While HP assures us that they will be active in the development and support of webOS in the future, they're now offering the operating system up to the "development power" of the open source community where they're sure both applications and web services will be developed en masse for the next generation of mobile devices.

HP $99 TouchPad edges out Android in non-iPad tablet sales

HP's TouchPad fire-sale scored the company the second place in US tablet sales, market stats have shown, with the $99 webOS slate edging ahead of Samsung's entire Galaxy Tab line-up. The Korean firm slipped to third place - behind Apple, in first, and HP, in second - with 16-percent of retail tablet sales between January and October 2011, the NPD Group found, while HP managed 17-percent thanks no doubt to its aggressive discounting. Total non-Apple tablet sales amounted to more than 1.2m units the analysts suggest.

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.
