HP webOS devices (TouchPad, Veer, and Pre series) to be killed in Q4 2011

New, 71 comments

In the company's earnings call today, HP CEO Leo Apotheker just announced that its shutdown of the webOS hardware business -- covering the Veer, TouchPad, and Pre series -- will wind down in the fourth quarter of the year. He didn't specify on the call whether he meant calendar Q4 or fiscal Q4, which makes a bit of a difference: fiscal Q4 would end next month, whereas calendar Q4 ends in over four. He also hasn't said whether this'll allow for full-fledged launches (or launches, period) of the Pre 3 in the US along with the TouchPad 4G and TouchPad Go -- but the fourth quarter of the calendar year kicks off in just a few weeks, so it wouldn't seem likely that those products would get much momentum in retail channels before the plug gets pulled.
