HP keeping webOS, splits from hardware division


While HP is willing to sell off it’s hardware business, it seems that it wants to hold on to webOS by shuffling it into an another division. The decision was leaked to site PreCentral via internal memos, which reveal that webOS (previously under the Personal Systems Group (PSG)) will now be under HP’s Office of Strategy and Technology. The move seems to indicate that HP still has plans for the webOS team, with the possibility of the OS being wrangled into some of their existing products, or be licensed to other manufacturers. This is good news for the people who picked up massively discounted TouchPads and existing Pre owners, as there might still be some semblance of support for their devices after all.
