HP just announced to keep PC Division.

HP today announced that it has completed its evaluation of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems Group (PSG) and has decided the unit will remain part of the company.

“HP objectively evaluated the strategic, financial and operational impact of spinning off PSG. It’s clear after our analysis that keeping PSG within HP is right for customers and partners, right for shareholders, and right for employees,” said Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive officer. “HP is committed to PSG, and together we are stronger.”

HP's PC business is the No. 1 manufacturer of personal computers in the world with revenues totaling $40.7 billion for fiscal year 2010. Meg Whitman sees the value in this and puts HP back on track.

It is not clear if this decision has any meaning for webOS and the TouchPad. The announcement does not mention webOS. I assume that this means that HP will not pick up webOS again and just focuses on Microsoft Windows as OS.
