HP Killed Off WebOS too soon

by T Bone    Sep 19, 2011, 9:41 PM

The fire sale on the TouchPad proved that there is interest in WebOS, it is simply a question of price.

Look at RIM, are they giving up on the Playbook? No, in fact, they are doubling down on their investment. They know that they have a good product and are convinced that if they stick with it they will eventually find success.

HP barely made an effort with webOS, and killed it off abruptly without even giving it a fair chance.

The more cynical part of me wonders whether they didn't purchase Palm specifically for the purpose of killing webOS and wiping out a competitor.
