… pity it had to happen as a result of a liquidation sale.
WebOS looks to be on it’s last legs, and HP has announced that it’ll never make new WebOS hardware. In the meantime, the fire sale of TouchPads has done fantastic things for us WebOS developers. The image below is a graph of the Flickr Mundo HD sales for 2011.
If only HP had anything resembling courage, rather than wimping out with the revelation that “Competition is hard? What? No one told me! Run away!!”, this sales trend might have actually continued for a long time.
Ah well, I’ll enjoy it while it lasts!
