Now that Hewlett-Packard plans to discontinue its TouchPad product that ran supporting its webOS software, could China's Lenovo Group bid for it?

Could Lenovo Eye HP’s Discarded webOS Technology?

Lenovo, already China's biggest PC maker, is no stranger in acquiring U.S. assets to expand market share. It acquired the remainder of IBM's PC lines in 2006, including the ThinkPad lines and other products.

Now that HP, No. 1 worldwide in PCs, also plans to exit the PC business, Lenovo might eye that, as well, although there are several reasons why not. Lenovo is big enough already and for tax purposes, HP might prefer to spin HP's Personal Systems Group off to shareholders as a separate company
