After reporting the possibility that HP sells webOS to the highest bidder, now have new details on the situation. The Verge announced, exclusively, that Meg Whitman, CEO of HP, admitted to the employees of the company and that Palm was not sure what the future had in store for webOS. Apparently, the admission was made during a meeting of employees and it seems that a decision must still be taken, because HP wants to focus on the fate of the PC business.
It reports that Whitman has told employees that a decision on the fate of webOS coming in the next three or four weeks, as pledged to take “the right decision, not the decision faster.” Whitman added that the figures of the deal with Palm played an important role in the decision, because if HP is committed with webOS, according to Whitman, an investment it would “significantly” for a number of years. In addition, if HP is commit to developing webOS, dedicating it to the tablet, because “things get more complicated if you add the phones.”
WebOS is a good system, definitely has a value which is a shame to see how it is wasted in this way. The hope is that it be reconsidered at least for the tablet, unfortunately having to give up in the smartphone sector, much to the chagrin of loyal Palm users. We look forward to see what will happen at this point.
