webOS Nation reports:

LG purchasing HP’s webOS division, licensing webOS for smart TVs

This news follows our exclusive report in October that LG was working with HP to develop a webOS-powered smart TV. Our sources tell us that LG now anticipates launching their first webOS-powered HDTV at CES 2014.

Head on over to webOS Nation to read more. It’s too bad webOS never took off as a mobile operating system. Competition is always a good thing.
