“It’s going to be in a product very soon,” he said. “Not in 2013, but soon thereafter.”

He also revealed that the company is “very confident webOS technology is a gamechanger when it comes to user experience.”

The news comes after vice president of smart TVs in North America revealed that the OS would be shipping in TVs to 82 countries.
