My employer is a HP-focused VAR. These paragraphs were part of a communication that was sent to our CEO this evening that he forwarded to the employees:
“HP has made the decision not to continue developing webOS devices. However, the
company is deeply committed to the future of the webOS platform. HP is also fully
committed to the ongoing support and service of customers who purchased webOS
devices. We will honor our product warranties and will continue to provide market
leading support via services such as webOS Butler, our free setup support service
available to all purchasers of HP webOS products for the first 90 days after purchase.
Furthermore, HP intends to enhance the webOS platform and ecosystem and support,
innovate and develop applications that deliver relevant and compelling benefits to the
markets in which we compete. HP TouchPad owners can look forward to a continued
delightful experience, over-the-air updates that enhance the platform and add
functionality and a growing applications catalog.”
Things aren't looking so bad...
