A mobile operating system originally developed by Palm and later acquired by HP in 2010. webOS was initially used as a replacement for Palm’s earlier Palm OS mobile operating system as well as Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, which the company used on some of its smartphones. webOS powered a number of Palm and HP smartphones before being expanded to also run on tablet computers like the HP Touchpad.

However, by August of the same year HP declared it was ceasing development on webOS and that future webOS-powered devices would be discontinued as well.
