HP stopper TouchPad og WebOS telefoner, og overvejer at droppe PC'er

Så gik den ikke længere. Det stærkt vigende salg på table- computere og telefoner med WebOS får nu HP til at stoppe produkterne.

Blot 16 måneder efter overtagelsen af Palm vælger Hewlett Packard helt at droppe WebOS, det system Palm-enhederne kørte på incl. HPs egne tablet computere som HP Touchpad der kom på markedet i USA før sommer.

HP har valgt helt at trække WebOS produkterne ud af markedet, både tablet-computere og telefoner, og der er ikke planlagt nye.

Samtidig overvejer HP at sælge PC-divisionen fra.

HP Confirms Discussions with Autonomy Corporation plc Regarding Possible Business Combination; Makes Other Announcements

HP today commented on the recent announcement by Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU.L). HP confirms that it is in discussions with Autonomy regarding a possible offer for the company.

HP also reported that it plans to announce that its board of directors has authorized the exploration of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems Group (PSG). HP will consider a broad range of options that may include, among others, a full or partial separation of PSG from HP through a spin-off or other transaction.

In addition, HP reported that it plans to announce that it will discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones. HP will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward.

HP today announced preliminary results for the third fiscal quarter 2011, with revenue of $31.2 billion compared with $30.7 billion one year ago.

In the third quarter, preliminary GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.93 and non-GAAP diluted EPS was $1.10, compared with third quarter fiscal 2010 GAAP diluted EPS of $0.75 and non-GAAP diluted EPS of $1.08. Non-GAAP diluted EPS estimates exclude after-tax costs related primarily to the amortization of purchased intangible assets of approximately $0.17 per share and $0.33 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2010, respectively.

For the fourth fiscal quarter of 2011, HP estimates revenue of approximately $32.1 billion to $32.5 billion, GAAP diluted EPS in the range of $0.44 to $0.55, and non-GAAP diluted EPS in the range of $1.12 to $1.16. Non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance excludes after-tax costs of approximately $0.61 to $0.68 per share, related primarily to restructuring and shutdown costs associated with webOS devices, the amortization and impairment of purchased intangibles, restructuring charges and acquisition-related charges.

HP estimates full-year FY11 revenue will be approximately $127.2 billion to $127.6 billion, down from its previous estimate of $129 billion to $130 billion. FY11 GAAP diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $3.59 to $3.70, down from its previous estimate of at least $4.27, and FY11 non-GAAP diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $4.82 to $4.86, down from its previous estimate of at least $5.00. FY11 non-GAAP diluted EPS estimates exclude after-tax costs of approximately $1.16 to 1.23 per share, related primarily to restructuring and shutdown costs associated with webOS devices, the amortization and impairment of purchased intangibles, restructuring charges and acquisition-related charges.

HP will host a conference call with the financial community today at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET to discuss these announcements well as HP’s third quarter 2011 financial results. The call is accessible via an audio webcast at www.hp.com/investor/2011q3webcast.

WebOS/HP er for små til at få et "nyt" system ind på markedet. Bare se hvordan det er gået med Samsungs eget system og andre lign. Pt. er der "kun" plads til Android, iOS og Windows Phone. Det er rigeligt, for det koster penge for forbrugerne at vælge "forkert". Tænk engang de 25.000 der har købt en tablet med WebOS til fuld pris. Dooh.

Det er ikke for smaat, men det er bare ikke udbredt. Som jeg ser det burde Android slet ikke eksistere hvis man sammenligner bruger venlighed. Faktisk er WP7 og WebOS de 2 mest imødekommende og ukomplicerede Os jeg nogensinder har set. WebOS neglede Multitasking og ukomplicerede sammenkoblinger i adresser og mail, samtidigt opfandt Palm mere eller mindre "Over The Air" opdateringen som køret suverænt.

Men akkurat ligesom med Radio. De kan spille det værste lort op og ned dagen lang, igen og igen og igen.... Til sidst har folk vænnet sig til det. Det hedder hjernevask.

WebOS må og skal overleve, alt andet ville være en skandale uden lige. For det er uden tvivl det ypperste mobil/tablet OS der findes. Bare en skam at HP som lever af at lave lort fik det.

Synes godt nok det er en skam, da Webos ser meget lovende ud, og jeg ville personligt meget gerne give penge for en HP veer, eller HP Pre3.

håber godt nok at der er nogen der samler Webos op, og laver noget godt ud af det.
