HP aims to sell 15 million webOS printers in 2011

Posted on Wednesday, September 29 2010 @ 03:20:03 CEST by

HP Executive Vice President for the Personal Systems Group, Todd Bradley, revealed at TechCrunch Disrupt that his main goal is to broadly deploy the webOS operating system. Bradley said HP is expecting to sell 15 million webOS printers next year, and estimates that tablets will become a $40 billion market in the next few years.
Bradley says his group, which is in charge of a $40-plus billion revenue stream including PCs, printers and more, was in charge of buying Palm. Bradley’s main goal now, is how to broadly deploy the WebOS, the mobile operating system for Palm phones. Next year, for example, Palm will sell 15 million printers that use WebOS. He says that while the smartphone category is growing, tablets are going to be a huge market. He estimates that in the next few years tablets will be a $40 billion market (he also said that the smartphone market is a $100 billion market). HP of course, is looking to be a part of this market with its own iPad competitors.

The strategy with webOS is not just the OS but it’s also to have a consistent interface from phones to tablets, says Bradley. He adds that the main reason HP acquired Palm was for the WebOS. Bradley adds however, that Palm will not license iOS, as Google has with the Android platform.
