Phil McKinney, VP and CTO for HP’s Personal Systems Group, was at the MobileBeat 2010 conference on Monday showcasing some of HP’s innovative products. One product receiving a good amount of attention is a low-power, mylar-based flexible display capable of playing video. McKinney offered a tantalizing morsel for webOS diehards by stating that “these are the kinds of display technologies that will change what we think of in form factors, both in products from Palm with flexible displays, and with HP.” Good news for Palm and webOS supporters as these comments indicate again that HP is in for the long haul with webOS and  is looking to integrate the mobile OS into products that are coming soon as well as those that are years away.
