Remember webOS, the praised mobile operating system by Hewlett-Packard (HP) that the tech giant suddenly killed in August?
After recently announcing that it will open-source webOS, HP has given us now a timetable when it will complete the transformation of the mobile OS and it says that it will complete it by September of this year.
HP decided to discontinue webOS devices and development of the OS itself in August as part of a plan by then-CEO Leo Apotheker to move away from the consumer space.
It also announced then that it was considering spinning off the HP Personal Systems Group, the side of its business which makes personal computers.
By doing so, HP essentially killed Palm which it acquired particularly because of webOS and its expertise in smartphones.
Meanwhile, HP released today the source code version 2.0 of Enyo, a developer tool for webOS.
By September, HP says that it will have fully licensed webOS under the Apache License 2.0, the same license Android carries.
