HP's CEO says that webOS is headed to printers and tablets
It was only time before we would start seeing HP take advantage of its acquisition of Palm in branching out webOS to a myriad of “web-connected” devices other than smartphones and tablets. During a conference call, HP's chief executive Mark Hurd made known to the world that the company is intent on bringing webOS to their “web-connected” printer hardware that needs a solid platform to jump start its roll out. Thinking back to webOS and Synergy, Palm's platform is expected to provide a stable and valuable stepping stone where it can easily be integrated to a myriad of devices without the some times lengthy development period associated with it. We've already heard rumors about HP developing a webOS powered tablet called the Hurricane, but HP is looking to unify and tie-in their products with webOS. To an extent, we could potentially see a time when we can access our social networking accounts on HP's various devices and services.
