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.
