HP: webOS in printers on the cards
Web-connected printers likely to feel webOS love according to HP suit.
Palm’s webOS could make its way into HP’s new printer line up. That’s according to the company’s CTO Shane Robison, who told a gathering of tech aficionados that new web-based printers would be ideal for the mobile operating system.
Robison said that the new machines would be able to print without a computer, while webOS would allow HP to have a ‘consistent interface’ on a raft of these devices.
However, Robison said that webOS would not be replacing Windows on HP’s netbooks, saying he didn’t want to, “…wreck the market.” However, he did say the operating system could supplement Windows 7.
