They killed it because it just wasn't moving-- even a little bit. Sales were so bad HP decided it wasn't worth pouring more marketing and R&D dollars into a commodity product market.
Most of the $99 and $149 models were snatched up immediately-- with folks expecting to convert them to Android.
It will be interesting to see if Microsoft or Google or other large company purchases the WebOS IP. Word is, it's a valuable war chest of patents. Supposedly, the team is also still intact, for now...
