HP has decided to split the WebOS / TouchPad group into two, keeping the WebOS group and planning to sell off the hardware group with their consumer pc group. HP's current plan is to license WebOS, but I'm not sure how successful they will be if there are no products on the market. It's possible that they may get some interest from companies who produce Android tablets if they experience problems related to Google's acquisition of Motorola Mobile.
