With all the talk about Android, iOS, Windows Phone
7 and even BlackBerry 6, it almost feels like webOS has quietly disappeared. The software that electrified the industry about a year and a half ago has been overshadowed, but according to Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein, you should not count it out. At Fortune Magazine’s Brainstorm tech conference, Rubinstein appeared on stage with HP's Todd Bradley to announce that "Palm has a great roadmap in place." With the acquisition of Palm by Hewlett Packard, where else would you expect to find webOS but in a line of printers. The software will also be used to power slates and smartphones. Rubinstein said that webOS 2.0 is being developed and added that Palm is working with Adobe to bring Flash to webOS. The executive did not reveal any timeframe as to when we would see the new products, and did not discuss any new handsets that are being worked on. Those in attendance received a free AT&T Palm Pre with 90 days of service on the house.
