HP to use webOS for slates and printers

Posted on Wednesday, May 19 2010 @ 12:50:15 CEST by


We already knew HP would use Palm's webOS for slates, phones and other mobile devices, but what we didn't know is that the firm also plans to use the operating system for Internet-connected printers:
Printers are a significant business for HP--in the most recent quarter the HP imaging and printing division made $6.4 billion in revenue, out of the total of over $30 billion. So it's not that crazy that they'd want to put its newest toy, WebOS, to work in that area.

But do printers need a mobile operating system? For HP, they do. The company has been pushing printers that are connected to the Web, like the PhotoSmart Premium TouchSmart Web printer. HP actually has an app store for these printers that allows users to download, for example, a Fandango or Snapfish app, and print movie tickets or photos directly from the printer over the Web.
