HP "not walking away from webOS" says HP VP
webOS will continue, possibly licensed to other companies.
While it was made official last week that HP would no longer be producing its lines of webOS devices (including the Pre mobile phone and the TouchPad tablet), the company has said publically that webOS will live on, at least for the immediate future.
Speaking after a meeting with employees at the webOS Global Business Unit of HP, webOS Vice President Stepehen DeWitt said several times that HP would not "walk away" from the mobile operating system, and that a roadmap for the future of webOS would be available in the next couple of weeks. "Clearly, we don't have all the answers yet." He said.
