Former Palm CEO and webOS chief has left HP. AllThingsD first reported about his departure some time ago, in what seems to be a move planned when HP acquired Palm. Rubinstein had planned to stay at HP for 12-24 months to oversee the launch of the TouchPad and transition of webOS into HP’s PSG division. However, things took a turn for the worse and HP went through a period of confusion where it even considered selling off its PSG and killed webOS for good. Thankfully, some sense prevailed and saw the removal of CEO Leo Apotheker and hiring of Meg Whitman as the next CEO. Of course, the TouchPad was discontinued once, turned out to be immensely popular for $99, which led to HP running another batch of TouchPads though most probably to fulfill component supplier and OEM commitments. In December, Whitman announced making webOS open, which was finally accomplished earlier this week with the release of Open webOS and Enyo 2.0. Rubinstein, who is most fondly remembered for his work at Apple for the iPod, told The Verge that he will be taking a break but is in no mood to retire, yet. We cannot wait to see what he will do next. Also Read - Best laptops under Rs 30,000 for multitasking to buy in October 2021
