HP Emerges as Big Winner in webOS Sale, and LG Doesn’t Rule Out a Phone

What’s more, LG’s plans include the possibility of eventually producing a phone or other mobile devices that run webOS, although the company remains focused on televisions in the short term. The result is a deal that looks like a clean exit from the webOS debacle for HP, and the beginnings of another muddled, confused chapter for Palm’s operating system
