Hewlett Packard is cutting 275 engineering jobs and other positions at its webOS business.

The Palo Alto-based computer maker said it no longer needs many of the engineers and other related positions.

HP let go of more than 500 webOS employees last September following a decision to halt production of the company's Touchpad tablet and other webOS-based consumer products.
