Following TouchPad’s death, HP to lay off over 500 workers

With the TouchPad dead and HP as a whole poised to shift its focus, job security is thin as air for staff employed in the webOS division.

All Things Digital has reported that HP intends to lay off more than 500 employees after an abrupt killing of webOS hardware in August. The company is keeping its webOS software, but those on the hardware side of things have it… well, harder.

HP has already confirmed the move, describing the move as a “reduction in workforce.”
