HP just dropped a biggie at their never-ending on-going event in San Francisco. The company said that it is thinking beyond todayand aims at bringing the webOS platform to other connected devices including printers, scanners, MFDs, cameras and PCs and laptops.
The company did not share any more details but, they did promise to share more details about this throughout the year.
It will be interesting to see as to how HP intends to implement a touchscreen OS on a PC/Laptop. I expect that webOS will be limited to only the touch based PCs and laptops from HP. On laptops, webOS will act as a great secondary OS when a user just intends to do view some pictures or check his emails.
WebOS is expected to arrive on PCs and laptop sometime later this year. It will be interesting to see if any of the latest HP PCs or laptops will be supported or not. The company definitely lived up to its tagline of the computer is personal again’ with this move.
