HP says webOS netbooks not on horizon

Palm webOSWhen HP recently acquired Palm, there was talk that Palm’s webOS would be ported to a number of different devices including tablets and netbooks. However, it appears that at least the latter is not on the agenda for now.

Monty Wong, vice president of HP’s personal computing systems group has said that netbooks are too similar to desktop computers for it to provide a good fit with webOS. Wong also confirmed that the HP Slate will land before October, although it’s unclear if this is the original tablet featuring Windows 7 or a new version with webOS.

    HP. . . stupid. HP really needs to offer WebOS on as many form factors as possible. Some may enjoy having WebOS as their sole operating system thus having some consistency. At the very least they ought to offer it as an optional upgrade or something. To relegate it to tables and phones only will stifle it. Come on. . . it could be one of the best operating systems for netbooks.

    ma funkcje zapobiegające, dlatego że ubezpiecza nas przed niechcianymi figurami jak i też pieskami i gwarantuje bezpieczeństwo dzieciom, którym uniemożliwia wyjście bez protekcji postaci dorosłej na jezdnię. Biorąc pod uwagę to jak wiele ważnych ról spełniają powinniśmy wyselekcjonować takie, jakie będzie bezpieczne oraz trwałe, zaś niezależnie od tych plusów będzie ściśle mówiąc przyzwoicie się obrazowało.

    At last some rationality in our little debate.

Got something to say?
