webOS to be open sourced

After months of speculation, a new CEO and 3 dead devices, HP has finally decided the fate of webOS. It’s going to be open sourced. This is what I (and I think most) people were hoping for. But the good news doesn’t stop there. In an interview with Meg Whitman courtesy of The Verge’s own Joshua Topolsky. Meg said that HP is planing on putting webOS on another tablet in the near future. She said that while 2012 maybe a little too early, we would defiantly will see a webOS tablet by 2013. When asked though on the fate of smartphones, she said they have no plans nor interest on putting it on them again, and don’t want to get in the smartphone business under her ruling.

When more news on the fate of the OS roles in, we’ve got you posted!
