HP to hold company-wide meeting, WebOS fate may be announced

There's not much on this one, but it appears that today HP is planning on holding an "all hands" meeting at the company, and will decide the future of WebOS at said meeting, according to The Verge.

The meeting will be held by Meg Whitman, CEO, which means it'll be a big announcement, however there isn't much more than that right now. It all kicks off at 4:30PM PDT, notably after markets have closed for the day. Now that PSG (Personal Systems Group) is going to live, what else could it be about?

According to various reports, HP is looking to sell of WebOS for quite a large sum of money, however, we'll know if this is true or not in a few hours.

We'll bring you more as we hear it.

Needs to be supported and updated asap whatever happens...my touchpad is still pretty buggy...the facebook app & web browser are awful.

Although unlikely, I'd love MS to buy webos then simply adopt ideas into wp7/wp8 & allow windows 8 on the touchpad lol

Allegedly (at precentral) Jon Rubenstein is also attending, which is odd since he hasn't been jnvolved since they shut down hardware. Possibly a good sign if true.

4:30 PDT isn't just after the stocks close, doesn't the NYSE and such close at 4PM EST? That's 3hrs 30 minutes before this isnt it?
