LG announces acquisition of webOS from HP

Posted by: Brett

LG announced today that they’ve acquired webOS from HP in an effort to bolster their Smart TV technologies. The acquisition includes “the source code, associated documentation, engineering talent and related websites associated with webOS”. webOS was essentially killed off two years ago when HP announced that they would be ceasing all production of webOS hardware, and they later began the Open webOS project which gave people access to it’s source code for further development of the software.
