HP is laying off 525 employees this week in the WebOS division, John Paczkowski at All Things D reports.
The layoffs have been expected to come ever since the company announced plans to all but give up on the mobile operating system.
HP still doesn’t seem to have a plan for WebOS. It tells Paczkowski, it “is exploring ways to leverage webOS software.” A sale of the assets seems like the smartest thing, and the easiest way to recoup the money it paid for Palm in the first place.
