It’s widely rumored that HP is going to unveil webOS tablets at its February 9 event. HP’s Todd Bradley let it slip at an interview on CNBC, that HP will be launching webOS tablets then, but apparently, it seems that HP plans to launch webOS netbooks as well.
Thanks to HP webOS Central, HP’s official training site for webOS device salesmen, we now know for sure that HP has a three pronged strategy for webOS – smartphones, tablets and netbooks. The site which has a series of videos for training salespeople about the pros and cons of webOS and its advantages over the iPad, has a video which confirms that HP will be launching webOS tablets as well as netbooks soon.
Apart from the video, there is also a quiz which asks “In the future you’ll find webOS on multiple devices like:” with the options – Phones, Slates, Netbooks and “All of the above”.
webOS was developed by Palm and was the main reason behind HP’s $1.2 billion acquisition of Palm. It has one of the best mobile user interfaces, which many believe is much better than iOS, both visually and in terms of multitasking. With a massive push from HP, it should become the third dominant mobile OS after Android and iOS.
