The folks at webOS Nation have reported that Sam Greenblatt has left his post as webOS CTO and will no longer be in charge of webOS. After reaching out to HP they also received confirmation with the following comment:
“Sam Greenblatt is moving from webOS to a new role at HP and will continue to assist the team during the transition. The Open webOS project is on schedule and HP remains committed to the roadmap announced in January.”
Currently, there is no indication as to who may be next to take the reins of webOS. For the time being, Greenblatt will remain with HP simply in a different capacity. Sources have told webOS Nation that some developers within HP may have had issues surrounding the current pace of the open webOS roadmap. Going as far as possible head-butting going on stemming as far back as when Greenblatt originally came on to manage webOS.
We are hopeful that this is simply yet another stepping stone in the long trail of stones that have faced webOS and that HP chooses the right person to head webOS as the next CTO. We are hoping they are able to continue making progressing and sticking with the promise to remain on track.
