HP to put webOS on all of its PCs

Posted on Wednesday, March 09 2011 @ 17:15:10 CET by

HP CEO Leo Apotheker revealed all of the company's future PCs will be equipped with webOS in addition to Windows. The move is aimed at giving webOS a more broad userbase to compete with other operating systems like Apple's iOS and Google's Android.
Apotheker says he also wants to make better use of WebOS, the computer-operating system acquired last year when Hewlett- Packard purchased smartphone maker Palm Inc. for $1.2 billion. Starting next year, every one of the PCs shipped by HP will include the ability to run WebOS in addition to Microsoft Corp.’s Windows, Apotheker said.

The move is aimed at enticing software developers to create a wider range of applications that would differentiate HP PCs, printers, tablets and phones from those sold by rivals.

“You create a massive platform,” Apotheker said.

Programmers have built more than 350,000 apps for devices made by Apple Inc. and more than 250,000 for Google Inc.’s Android Market. WebOS has 6,000 apps, according to HP.
