In addition, HP reported that it plans to announce that it will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones. HP will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward.

WebOS is like Matt Damon’s character in Good Will Hunting — where there is a ton of potential that is being held back by the people in control of that persons/OSs life. WebOS just needs a company that cares about more than short-term profit — a hard shoe to fill in the current economy.
