HP promises webOS on printers, PCs, and more

Towards the tail-end of today’s HP media event, the company laid out its future plans for its acquired operating system, webOS. Citing a more connected, social world, the Palo Alto juggernaut promised to extend webOS beyond smartphones and tablets and on to printers (HP’s cash cow), PCs, and more. HP is one of the world’s largest printer and PC manufacturers, which makes the potential ramifications of such a move very, very interesting. All the talk has been extremely high level — no specifics — but the possibilities are seemingly endless. One thought: seeing that “PC Load Letter” printer error-message on a cute, stylish webOS notification bubble. Priceless.
