MrCrassic writes "Looks like it might be the beginning of the end for webOS presence at HP, as The Register just announced that they laid off 525 webOS developers. From the article:

HP is laying off up to 525 staff from its global webOS hardware biz, according to reports. The tech titan confirmed last month it is shuttering the unit that produced the ill-fated TouchPad and Pre3 devices. “As communicated on 18 August, HP will discontinue the development of webOS devices within the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, which ends 31 Oct 2011,” an HP spokesperson told AllThingsD in the US.
