After successfully acquiring and killing an operating system(WebOS) and a company (Palm), in less than six months, HP continues to wonder what it can do with the remains. HP earlier this week issued a statement that it will shut down all remaining operations of the division. This news didn’t come as much of a shocker to us as HP had already clarified its plans to shut down the operations on WebOS devices.
Yesterday HP’s Todd Bradley, went on Bloomberg to clear the air, and called the report about the shut down an “unfounded rumor.” He said
“Accolades for the operating system are broadly known and that the company is focusing on how to [...]
Palm, The company that was killed due to lack of intelligent structuring by HP, remains as one of the biggest loss-outs in the mobile acquisition history. Palm was the first after Apple to offer an OS capable of interacting with touchscreen devices, and one that was also limited to their own devices. Not that Palm had not been doing that from the day it launched, it somehow managed to user in the post iOS era when apps and the APP Store were just very young.
Hp after buying out Palm flat out for 1.2 billion dollars, on August 19th 2011 announced that it will abandon the WebOS and its devices. Now Amazon seems to be the [...]
While we still un-package our touch pads, Team Touchdroid has managed to dual boot WebOS and Android 2.3 on he Touchpad. Since the Fire sale, touch pads are all over the place and everyones got in on the action. Especially folks trying to boot Cyanogen Mod 7 on the Touchpads. But looks like its going to be stock droid for now.
For the time being the touchscreen is not working, but expect a quick fix. If you managed to score a Touchpad this might interest you.
Hewlett-Packard (HP), the world’s largest PC maker, after ending WebOS, is considering spinning off its massive PC manufacturing business.
According to HP, its Personal Systems Group (PSG) is worth $40 billion in annual revenues. The PSG includes personal computers, technical workstations, WebOS-powered tablets and smart phones, as well as personal storage solutions.
The quick and steady growth of tablets, particularly Apple’s iPad, is not good for companies that have invested billions of dollars in building and selling PCs.
There are other areas where HP [...]

Hewlett Packard just filed for a trademark on “HP Touchpad” across a wide variety of products and services ranging from memory cards to “tablet computers.
It also looks like HP is dropping Palm from the picture as it does not even mention it for the Feb WebOS event, where this tablet might be introduced. HP’s already invested heavily in branding its laptop trackpads with the ClickPad name.
HP could possibly be looking to hedge its bets by getting into the Android game as well, or it may be pushing out a consumer-oriented version of the Slate.
