We had heard speculation in the past that HP might consider licensing webOS, but nothing concrete until now. HP CEO Leo Apotheker said in an interview yesterday that the company is in talks to license webOS.
We are talking to a number of companies,” Apotheker said in Beijing, declining to elaborate on details. “I can share with you that a number of companies have expressed interest. We are continuing our conversations.”
When asked when this might happen, Apotheker said “there is no time pressure to do this“.
The suitor is likely Samsung as Bloomberg cites three people with knowledge of the discussions.
Anyone in the market for a Super AMOLED packed Galaxy running webOS?
