HP says it's committed to webOS after controversial remarks from HP's CEO
Things can really get shaken up for HP after their CEO, Mark Hurd, decided to say some controversial words surrounding their recent buyout of Palm. He was heard saying, “We didn’t buy Palm to be in the smartphone business.” Rather than building up the foundation created by webOS, it looks like HP decided to go after Palm for simply their intellectual property. Thankfully things started to cool off a day after those remarks were made as HP's PR came out to say that the company is still committed to webOS. Naturally one would believe that the beliefs and positions of a company can be found in the mood of their CEO – which for HP looked to be distant from having any relationship in branching out webOS. However, HP' public relations team came out with a statement simply saying, “When we look at the market, we see an array of interconnected devices, including tablets, printers, and of course, smartphones. We believe webOS can become the backbone for many of HP’s small form factor devices, and we expect to expand webOS’s footprint beyond just the smartphone market, all while leveraging our financial strength, scale, and global reach to grow in smartphones.”
