Poor WebOS. Now that its most recent suitors, Hewlett-Packard, have given up the Orphan Annie of the mobile device world it looks like HTC may want to purchase the mobile operating system.

Speaking to the Economic Observer of China, HTC’s Chairwoman Cher Wang said the popular smartphone maker has been discussing the possibility of buying the mobile OS first built by Palm. If HTC was to buy WebOS, Wang says, the company would not stop the company from building phones for all the other mobile operating systems it currently supports.

HTC already makes its own interface, HTC Sense, which runs onto of Android and Windows Phone 7 devices, but some analysts believe that by adding its own operating system, the company would have a more solid footing in the mobile phone market. We, on the other hand, aren’t so sure. Android, iOS, BlackBerry OS, and Windows Phone 7 seem to be more than enough for consumers.
