HP plans to sells webOS

Reuters carries a new rumor saying that HP is evaluating a sale of Palm webOS.

HP still did not officially decide what they plan to do with webOS. What is official is that they will keep the PC business. Reuters reports now that HP works with Bank of America Merrill Lynch on evaluating a sale of webOS. This is not a new rumor, but everything has been in flux at HP, ever since Leo Apotheker announced to killing of the HP TouchPad in August. In my opinion HP has already damaged webOS beyond recognition and I do not think it makes sense for any brand-name company to buy it. Additionally WebOS has no apps compared to iOS or Android. 

Amazon showed how to do it with the Kindle Fire. You take an Android core and make your own OS on top. This makes you independent of Google, but you still have the benefit of the Android platform with all apps available for it. Since Google owns Motorola, it is actually important to be independent from Google's Android. It also makes more sense in my eyes for device makers to support Windows Phone OS and Windows 8 for Tablets than investing and buying out webOS from HP.
