HP Announces 525 Layoffs For Coming To WebOS Team.

  • September 20, 2011 7:10 am

Even though HP is apparently committed to webOS (whether by sale or some miraculous re-birth within the company), they will carry onward with fewer webOS members in tow.

Following the abandonment of webOS hardware back in August, HP today started laying off an unconfirmed amount of webOS employees. (Some reports indicate layoffs may go as high as 525.)

What’s uncertain even now is what exactly HP’s plan is. While they’ve already voiced interest in “leveraging the webOS software”. Critics have been quick to hit back at such comments, citing a lack of hardware essentially a death sentence for the platform.

Either way, the future for webOS remains bleak.
