    We certainly hope you haven't just spent your
    hard earned money on a webOS device when
    reading this. In today's third quarter results
    report, the computer behemoth announced that it
    "will discontinue operations for webOS devices,
    specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones."

    According to HP, "The devices have not met
    internal milestones and financial targets." To put
    it better in plain language,they did not sell
    enough webOS devices - hardly a surprise given
    the lack of developed apps for the webOS
    ecosystem.

    The beautifully looking OS might just continue
    living on in printers or cars' entertainment/
    navigation systems, or get licensed to an
    interested party. However, as far as mobile
    devices are concerned, it is all over.
