HP has officially closed down the Palm webOS retail stores in the US, the move comes just a few weeks after HP announced that they would stop selling webOS based devices, and they dropped the price of the HP TouchPad down to $100, which led the device to sell out quickly.
HP bought Palm for $1.2 billion last year, and after poor sales of the new HP webOS devices, HP decided to put an end to producing webOS devices, but did the company really give webOS a chance? Considering HP announced when they purchased Palm they would invest heavily in webOS, it doesn’t look like HP did what it said it would.
HP’s latest webOS devices were sold off at bargain prices at the last day of their retail stores, with the Veer selling for $50, the Pixi selling for $25, or if you bought 4 you could get the Pixi for $15, a sad day for Palm and webOS fans.
