At the beginning of this year, the WebOS was highly regarded to shake up the Smartphone and tablet space of iOS and Android by the media, but now it once again shakes the world that HP will give up WebOS soon. For HP has killed the WebOS devices recently, including HP TouchPad, Palm Pre and Pixi phones.
HP bought Palm for $1.2 billion in 2010 mainly for the company’s WebOS mobile system, which wowed the tech world when it debuted in 2009. At that time HP has the ambition that one day the WebOS would be bring to desktop computers, printers and other electronics, including appliances and cars.
At the time when HP launched the HP TouchPad, we may have seen some hope in that “iPad killer”. However the result shows HP TouchPad isn’t so popular and lots of problems exist.
Although HP said it will not give up WebOS entirely and it will continue to explore options to optimize the value of WebOS software going forward. But do you believe it? What will WebOS do after the WebOS devices have been killed?
For all the faults people may put on HP, at the last days of WebOS, I really hope that WebOS won’t fade away in the tech history. Just because HP failed, doesn’t mean another company can’t make it work. Is it possible that some company will buy WebOS and give it new birth?
