HP looks to hammer the final nail into webOS’s coffin

HP webOS Patent Sale

HP’s acquisition of Palm was certainly one of worst buys in recent history — not the worst, of course — and now the company is trying to get something back from its $1.2 billion mistake. Bloomberg reports that HP has started removing some of the sales restrictions that it had placed on its mobile patents recently to entice more potential buyers to scoop them up. HP wouldn’t comment on Bloomberg’s report but it certainly makes sense for HP to start unloading some of its webOS-related patents since the company has no ambitions to develop its own mobile platform in the future and will instead rely on both Windows and Android for its tablets going forward.
