HP Makes WebOS Open Source

December 13th, 2011 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: WebOS | No Comments »

The soap around Palm’s good old WebOS seems to continue at HP. The company has now announced that it will make the WebOS platform open source. HP acquired Palm and WebOS about one and a half year ago in the hope that it would bring HP the cutting edge technology they needed to become a big player in the smartphone and tablet markets.

Next to turning WebOS open source, it will also invest in further development of the mobile operating system. If HP will produce more WebOS-based hardware remains to be seen. The company does invite other hardware vendors to use WebOS in their products. With this soap going on, it is unlikely the platform will ever get to be very attractive to developers.
