HP dangles developer carrot with WebOS PCs | Relevant Results - CNET News

Maybe HP has a secret plan to offer WebOS  on server clusters as well, since it’s apparently operating in a parallel universe wherein Apple, Google, and Microsoft don’t exist…

Almost two hours into an event ostensibly scheduled to reveal HP's new smartphones along with the TouchPad tablet, HP Executive Vice President Todd Bradley dropped a bit of a stunner. HP has long said since acquiring Palm that it planned to use WebOS in a variety of devices, but until today few realized it intended to drive the software into its PC lineup.

"I'm excited to announce our plans to bring the WebOS to the device that has the biggest reach of all: the personal computer," Bradley said. And with that, many in the tech industry stopped wondering whether the TouchPad was really good enough to compete with the iPad and started wondering about how the world has been changed.
