Samsung Interested in Purchasing webOS From HP?

Samsung may be interested in purchasing webOS from HP to compete with iOS and Android, according to a DigiTimes report.

The sources noted that the acquisition of HP's PC business, which has a rather low gross margin, may turn out to hurt Samsung's panel and DRAM businesses that have rather high gross margins, therefor HP's webOS may be the target that Samsung has the most interest in.

In addition, Google's acquisition of Motorola, which may seriously threaten hardware brand vendors, could also trigger Samsung to purchase webOS as a counter measure, the sources added.


Both HP and Samsung declined to comment on the matter.

WebOS is what is left of Palm's IP? I miss my Palm Treo...it did important things that my iPhone will not. For example: record phone calls.

Notch web OS is the most visible remnant of Palm :/ As for phone call recording there's an app for that. I would be interested if galaxy s2 with web OS ! Why doesn't apple buy it as allegedly web OS ran very nicely on iPad!!

You don't really have a real answer? Prove me wrong: delevopers have told me that Apple's dev kit specifically forbids this feature. And I am not aware of any jailbreak app that has managed to circumvent this obstacle. Again, please prove me wrong :) I'd like that.
