WebOS Won’t Give Up, Goes Open Source [News]

HP just can’t seem to make up its mind about the company’s mobile operating system, WebOS. It appeared to be on the chopping block just a few months ago, but the company has a new CEO with a new plan – go open source with WebOS.

The announcement, made by the official developer blog, does not include a release date for the operating system’s source code, instead simply stating that “Meg Whitman has reiterated HP’s commitment to WebOS as a cloud-connected, scalable platform, while opening up new possibilities for platform expansion and improvement. She has also committed HP to a course of continued improvement to webOS, which means we’re in it for the long haul. “
