HP’s Palm acquisition brings potential webOS netbook opportunities

April 29, 2010 at 10:28 am

HP PalmIn an unexpected move, HP acquired Palm for $1.2 billion yesterday. One of the side affects of this acquisition could be HP using Palm’s WebOS operating system for use in a number of devices, besides smartphones, including tablets and netbooks.

On the conference call yesterday, HP’s Todd Bradley said “between smartphones, slates, and potentially netbooks, there are a lot of opportunities here.” HP is obviously testing a number of different form-factors and OSes at the moment including the Compaq AirLife that sports Android and the HP Slate. Whilst there’s nothing definitive right now, we look forward to see exactly what could come of this deal.

    Not sure the details of the WiFi ennaecemnhts, but it’s working great for me! My home wireless network has a hidden SSID, that requests not to be mapped, MAC address filtering, and WPA. Before, connecting was an exercise in frustration. After performing this update, the network is found and connected to almost immediately, just as expected. Thanks Chrome OS team!

    Is that really all there is to it because that’d be flabbergasting.

Got something to say?
