webOS all-hands meeting called for this afternoon, answers likely to result
It’s been a long and tumultuous road since HP decided to stop making webOS devices back in August. We’ve been up and down and seen no fewer than half a dozen different and divergent companies floated as potential purchasers of webOS. Tonight will possibly be the start of the next chapter of webOS. We’re not sure what that chapter will be, but we do know that HP has called an all-hands meeting of the webOS Global Business Unit this afternoon on the Palm campus in Sunnyvale. In attendance will be HP CEO Meg Whitman and former Palm CEO and current HP SVP Jon Rubinstein.
What exactly they’ll be discussing is an unknown at this point. We’ve heard everything from a completed sale to HP keeping webOS to HP just killing webOS. Truth is, only those execs presenting and a few others inside HP (and maybe outside, if the first option is the truth) know what’s going on. Soon, we’ll all know. Either way, it seems that HP’s come to their holistic decision on the matter.
