Move aside, Rubenstein!

Added on by TEK.GADG.

HP is doing the exec shuffle! The company has just announced that Stephen DeWitt will be taking the lead in HP's webOS global business unit, while Jon Rubenstein will be moving up to Senior VP of Global Innovation for HP's Personal Systems Group.

Jon Rubenstein, as you know, has been the head of webOS everything. Ever since Palm made the switch to webOS and Palm Pre, Rubenstein has been at the helm of everything. Though it seemed like Rubenstein was to maintain this position after the HP-Palm merger, it was not to be.

Here's hoping Rubenstein will streamline everything at HP, as he did at Palm when he first got hired. He should really kill those webOS-based printers.
