HP Will Abandon Web OS Development

Ouch...HP is having a really bad day on a generally bad day for the stock market.

HP trading was halted as news reports confirm that it was getting rid of its PC business via a spin-off.  And just now, HP announced it will cease Web OS development and find other means to optimize the $1.2 billion Palm buyout.

Any guess who will pick up the pieces?
