HP TouchPad Go 7-inch WebOS tablet emerges

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.
