HP pulls plug on webOS devices - Rest In Peace

HP had acquired Palm in 2010. Then they released two phones and a tablet device running Palm's webOS. They didn't seem to sell very well. HP simply killed the mobile OS and the devices.Though webOS wasn't widely app-supported compared to Android and iOS, but there were a lot of people who genuinely liked that operating system - especially its multitasking features. Many said it was the best mobile OS ever.

HP may also be thinking of selling off its PC division.

Personally, I don't understand what is wrong with them. Hewlett-Packard is the world's largest IT company after all.
