HP says webOS, the once promising mobile OS built by Palm, has reached “end of life.”

HP said on its developer site Wednesday that it would be shutting down the webOS Cloud Services and App Catalog January 15, 2015.  Those services are still used by some remaining users of weOS devices.

Today that includes the HP Pre 3 and the HP Touchpad.


This shouldn’t be a huge surprise. HP shut down hardware support for webOS devices three years ago.

The company said the number of users still using webOS devices has dwindled down to almost none.

HP got webOS when it acquired Palm in April 2010.
