If you were here to witness the acquisition of Palm by HP, you probably remember when we hinted that it may be a possibility WebOS was going to be implemented on their product line in order to provide consumers with a better HP experience than was ever possible before.
Well, the time is coming soon folks…
HP has announced that WebOS will not only be on the HP Slate, but it will be on their printers as well!
We all knew this was coming, right? Well, even if you didn’t, you shouldn’t have ever doubted HP, even if they have fell through for us before. They have now made a smart buy when they finalized the Palm buyout.
Sure, the HP Slate using WebOS probably is self-explanatory, but what in the world are they going to do with their touchscreen printers that they’ve already rolled out prior to taking over Palm?
This could very well be computer history in the making, fasten your seatbelts.
Right now, the iPad is huge, imagine when HP releases the Slate with WebOS. After all, it’s already prepared to fulfill mobile demands since Palm has been working on this for years. It just might give Steve Jobs a run for his money, or be the final fall of HP.
Which one do you bet on?
When will this change take place?
The best bet on this is during the third quarter of this year. They have already announced that the printers which are connected to the internet, and the HP Slate will be two of the products to benefit from this change. It’s just a matter of refining their ideas and making a wise execution of this new model.
Will HP run out of money like Palm did and have to sell out?
This definitely doesn’t seem like an option for this reputable computer manufacturer. In fact, they have increased their sales by 25% recently, making them an even more successful company than they were at the beginning of the quarter.
HP might just be what Palm has been waiting a long time for, and they may actually bring technology to a whole other level. Of course, it’s too early to tell, and HP has been rather shaky in the past as far as their ability to meet consumer demands in a positive manner.
