HP has laid off 275 employees from its webOS division. The layoffs follow the company's recent open-sourcing on the webOS platform. HP laid off more than 500 webOS employees last September. "As WebOS continues the transition from making mobile devices to open-source software, it no longer needs many of the engineering and other related positions that it required before," said HP in a statement. "This creates a smaller and more nimble team that is well equipped to deliver an open source WebOS and sustain HP's commitment to the software over the long term." HP announced in August that it would no longer make smartphones and tablets based on webOS, and is currently in the process of making the mobile platform available to the open source community.
