I never owned a web os device, but I still sad that they will bw gone. I think it kept Android on it's toes.

Nice waste of the 1.2 billion they paid for Palm.

When I read that HP bought Palm I knew that they would be too stupid to make it a success. But I didn't think that they wouldn't even try. Killing a device only seven weeks after initial launch is a bit early, isn't it? That's just not enough time if you have to build up a market against two strong competitors.

I do not understand this - how can a big company in tech like HP NOT have cards in mobile? This seems like a very short-sighted decision to me.

Maybe HP was paid by the competition to kill webOS? ;) I was thinking about to buy a TouchPad but now i don't need to think about it anymore. It's sad...
