HP looks set to announce firm plans on whether it will keep webOS and Palm onboard

Word has made its way to us through multiple sources that HP plans to hold an all-hands meeting tonight — led by Meg Whitman — on which we'll likely hear what is going to happen with webOS. It should be noted that the call will take place around 4:30PM PT, after markets have closed here in the US.

As Reuters reported yesterday, the computer-maker has been looking to sell off the ailing mobile platform division, eyeing partners like IBM, Oracle, and RIM as potential places to offload Palm's beset OS.

Update: We just received word that Meg did indeed hold an all-hands with the webOS team, but no decision was made. Whitman told a crowded room on the HP campus that a final word would come in the next three or four weeks. Check out the full story right here.
