HP to Make a Decision on webOS in Two Weeks

Advertisement

More than three months have passed since HP officially killed webOS. HP’s CEO Meg Whitman said that the company “should announce our decision in the next two weeks”, which “is not an easy decision, because we have a team of 600 people which is in limbo”.

There were several rumors around webOS, including those according to which HP would license it out. Also, in a rather interesting shift, HP’s new CEO — Meg Whitman replaced Leo Apotheker in September — said that if Apple’s iPads are regarded as PCs (according to Canalys) the HP will probably be second in 2012 but striving for first again in 2013.

A decision is expected on both webOS and PCs since ex-CEO Leo Apotheker said back in August that HP will be spinning off its computer business as well as discontinuing mobile hardware like tablets. We should have that in two weeks.
