HP to flog mobile patents

by on24 October 2013

So much for mobile moves

The maker of expensive printer ink, HP is seeking buyers for some of its mobile-computing patents.

The patents include those related to webOS - the smartphone and tablet-computer operating system that HP acquired through its 2010 buy of Palm. HP sold the webOS operating system to South Korea's LG earlier this year, but retained the patents.

If the rumours are true it would indicate that HP does not see much mileage in mobile, which is certainly contrary to the collective wisdom of analysts.
