Not really sure why I would want WebOS on a printer, but I am sure they have a game plan with it that is better than what I am picturing.
>> Not really sure why I would want WebOS on a printer
You wouldn't. This is just HP trying to find some way to make the best of a bad investment. Putting it on a tablet is a sure flop too, since Android and Apple are going to get all the developer attention. WebOS is headed the way of BeOS.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
webOS is one of the best mobile operating systems that is well known for having the best multitasking capability on smartphones; 50 apps at the same time. iPhone doesn't have true multitasking and hasn't had such feature since it's release. webOS on a printer will turn HP's legacy printers into INTERNET printers. This means, you can print all your documents and personal photos remotely from your Palm Pre smartphone or other mobile device. By the time you get home, your printed documents will be ready and so will your photos. Today, we have to turn on a PC/Laptop, download files from eMail attachments, turn on the Printer, and send the document to the printer. That will all change with Internet printers and will be completely bypassed. Direct Internet Printing is the future!
webOS is so powerful, it will turn printers into dedicated Print Servers. This also means, anyone who wants to print to these printers will not require device drivers to install. So if you think outside of the box (unlike 3vi1), you'll realize how valuable Internet Printers will become to businesses who want to offer their clients new convenient and innovative ways to send their signed documents and images directly to their new Internet Printer. HP's new webOS Internet Printers will be a HUGE hit!
>> So if you think outside of the box (unlike 3vi1),
Lol... yeah, my thinking is so conformist and common.
I can already print to my HP printers from the internet, because my router runs CUPS. It's not hard, nor is it of any major advantage.
You signed up to make this one post... You work for HP, right?
