HP Hiring WebOS Developers
Oct 4, 2012, 1:44 PM by Eric M. Zeman
HP appears to be seeking developers for its webOS platform, based on job listings that appear on HP's employment web site. Job titles that appear on the HP job board include software engineers, product managers, and many others for both webOS and Enyo (webOS's development framework). Even though HP no longer makes webOS-based hardware, it recently released Open webOS 1.0 to the open source community and continues to support the platform. HP has not provided any specific explanation behind the need for so many webOS-focused employees given the defunct nature of the OS, but the company has admitted recently that it does need to offer a smartphone sooner rather than later.

What on Earth are their plans?
So....they aren't making any more webOS hardware, but they are continuing to support it (support it ON WHAT exactly?)....they open sourced the software...but have no plans to develop it, they need to produce a smartphone, but apparently the smartphone will have no OS...
Does anyone at HP have the foggiest idea what on Earth they are doing? They seem to be going in about a billion different directions at once.....many of which seem to directly contradict others things they also say they are doing...
