HP Spins Out Remaining WebOS Assets As 'Gram'

If you thought Hewlett-Packard's long-running WebOS saga couldn't get any weirder, you were wrong.

HP said it is spinning off what remains of its WebOS Global Business Unit into a separate company called Gram. No, you read that right: Gram.

Included in the spin-off are the WebOS software and cloud services team, and Enyo, the WebOS application framework for developers, according to a leaked internal memo. Gram, which carries the tagline "Potent. Light. Nimble. At the core of all things big and small," will focus entirely on software and solutions, according to the memo, which offered no other insight into the company's raison d'etre.
