Fate of webOS Still Hangs in the Balance

According to a new article on BGR.com today, the fate of webOS, the mobile operating system that HP acquired thru their acquisition of Palm, still hangs in the balance.

After having burned through a staggering $3.3 Billion on webOS, HP has abandoned their plans for any new webOS smartphones or tablets.
 "HP CEO Meg Whitman has gone on record in stating that a decision regarding the fate of webOS will be made within two weeks. HP took possession of webOS when it acquired Palm for $1.2 billion in 2010, and that buy yielded one failed tablet that was discontinued shortly after launching, three failed smartphones and soon, perhaps, the death of webOS itself."
