Although Palm could not be saved, but a few years ago, HP acquired the assets of the legendary company.
Over $ 1 billion at the disposal of the corporation has got a unique software. In particular – the platform WebOS.
The operating system designed for mobile gadgets Hewlett-Packard. In the future, it could compete with Android. But nothing came of it and soon OS support will stop completely.
Who will suffer? Few “happy” owners of the tablet HP TouchPad. Plus the owners of older devices like the Pixi and Palm Pre.
The 15th of January will turn off all the “cloud” services that ensure the normal work of WebOS. People will lose the opportunity to recover passwords to use backups, and so on.
App Store App Catalog will cease to exist. Therefore, in 2015, fans have to put the project through unofficial means.
We can not say that what happened was a shocking surprise. Devices discussed the OS is not available for more than 3 years. Hewlett-Packard maintains the servers as long as the number of the faithful followers of the legacy Palm has not decreased to a negligible level.
