Hewlett-Packard (HP),  finally made the  decision, that it will open sources Web OS and not gone sell it. The Company said that they will not sell but contribute this to open source community to make the more elegant and better.

In an statement, HP CEO Meg Whitman, says "By contributing this innovation, HP unleashes the creativity of the open source community to advance a new generation of applications and devices." The OS was bought for $1.2 billions from Palm last year (2010) but HP did market the selling of smartphones very well and decide to not go with it. HP CEO, also mention desire that if the market is open for in the coming years, may be 2012-13,  then they will go for Hardware, till then there will be no manufacturing from them.

Earlier Hp decision of selling the HP touchpad with $99, go viral in the market. This make the confusion in the market what HP will do with WebOS and finally they got with open-sourcing it. HP said that they will now concentrate more on thier PC bussines and let open source community to make their mind with WebOS. One can find the  the HP suggestion here.
