On HP Quitting Tablets

On The Next Web we learn that HP could not compete with Apple's iPad hardware: WebOS was over twice as fast on Apple's iPad as it was on HP's own tablet. According to Joshua Topolsky, HP claims to have plans for WebOS, even if it doesn't have plans to compete in tablet hardware.

After shelling out one point two billion greenbacks for Palm, HP has a certain amount of motivation to make something of its IP, and to retain the quality engineers it gained with the purchase. How it'll do these things is a question for which it isn't yet offering answers.
