HP’s WebOS Enyo Team is Heading to Google

The Verge got the scoop:

The HP team responsible for Enyo — webOS’s HTML5-based application framework that debuted on the TouchPad — will be leaving the company and starting at Google shortly, The Verge has learned. What this means for the future of Open webOS is unclear; Enyo and the developers supporting it are central to HP’s open source strategy for the operating system going forward, and it’s hard to say whether this move will have any effect on the planned late 2012 release for version 1.0.

What the Enyo team will do at Google is unknown at this point, but there are several logical landing spots.

I’d be really shocked if they didn’t end up working for the Android team, which could significantly help improve Android.
