The tablet that would not die, the HP TouchPad along with its operating system webOS is back in the news. The HP TouchPad was responsible for more app downloads than for Android tablets while HP showed its commitment to webOS as an open source operation system.
HP CEO Meg Whitman warned attendees at the HP Global Partner Festival that now that Google owns Motorola, Android could become a closed-platform. She let the audience know that HP is still committed to webOS for the long run. If Android becomes closed, then webOS devices would benefit.
