Zombie webOS resurrected in HP’s new ‘Gram’ business

It’s hard to keep an undead mobile operating system down. webOS Nation reports that HP (HPQ) is forming a new company called Gram that is dedicated to “leveraging the core strengths of webOS, Enyo and our cloud offerings.” As the site notes, the founding of Gram means that HP will not be using webOS for consumer electronics anymore and will instead use it for its enterprise products including “software, user experience, the cloud, engineering, and partnering.” However, there’s still no official word on what the company’s offerings will be, and webOS Nation says that current webOS employees “are being advised that they can talk to friends and family about Gram, but strangers are to be told that ‘Gram is a new company. We are in stealth mode on our product offering.’ “
