LG acquires WebOS from HP.

Remember the WebOS devices of the past, in specific the palm devices. Well HP bought palm some years ago and the WebOS has had quite a rocky past as there are not many palm devices still in existence today. That being said, it appears that LG has acquired WebOS from HP in order to further develop their Smart TVs. This is good news for the WebOS as it did not appear to be going anywhere as a smartphone OS. Furthermore, LG does not intend to continue developing WebOS for smartphones but says they will still continue to support existing users out there. In my opinion if you are still using a palm device, you are extremely far behind the curve when it comes to smartphones. Get a new one!
