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.

HP webOS decision within two weeks

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.
