Why did H-P (HPQ) decide to hold onto webOS, in spite of reported interest from third parties? It may be that would-be buyers balked at H-P's price tag: VentureBeat claims H-P was asking for $1.2B, the same price at which it acquired Palm in 2010. The report could further agitate H-P's shareholders, given it appears the company was more interested in saving face than in selling an also-ran mobile OS for its market value.
