    HP Holding webOS Special Event February 9 In San Francisco

    We’ve just been invited to an HP event on February 9 in San Francisco. The topic? webOS, according to the invitation. The invite’s main header reads: “Think big. Think small. Think beyond.” Could this mean an expansion of webOS to many types of devices? At the very least, we should get the skinny on the full webOS 2.0 release, which is only available in a very limited… Read More

  • Foxconn Said To Be Making Next Gen WebOS Devices

    Industry sources at Foxconn Technology and Compal Communications are stating that they are currently manufacturing multiple WebOS devices including the so-called PalmPad. Read More

  • Spotify sees a future with HP's Palm, launches on webOS

    Say what you will about Spotify‘s delayed US launch or whether its freemium model is ultimately flawed, but when it comes to rolling out mobile clients, the music streaming service can’t be bettered. While other companies set the bar at an iPhone app (and possibly Android), Spotify, with its European roots, has already gone where many dare not, developing a fully-fledged client… Read More

  • Palm's WebOS 2.0 Shows Up On YouTube

    WebOS was initially a bit of a disappointment, to be honest. Sure, there are die-hards that love it, but lets be honest, most people went with Android or the iPhone. Palm’s hoping to change all that with WebOS 2.0, and while there have been some still shots floating around, no one has seen any video until now. Check out the video after the jump. Read More

  • HP's Rahul Sood Optimistic That Upcoming WebOS Devices Will Sell Based On Hardware, Not Apps Alone

    HP’s working on new webOS hardware. That’s a fact, but that’s about all we know so far besides the Palmpad trademark. The company is doing a damn fine job keep things under wraps. Well, I guess there was that insignificant leak the other week that caused HP to go somewhat ballistic just because someone found that webOS 2.0 finally has a virtual keyboard as expected. But… Read More

  • HP's WebOS Tablet Coming Out In Early 2011?

    A rumor just surfaced over at Engadget that basically states HP’s targeting a 2011 Q1 release date for the webOS tablet. You know, the one likely named Palmpad. Apparently the Personal Systems Group VP mentioned that yesterday at some mass HP meeting. Does that mean we’ll see a CES 2011 announcement? It feels just about right. Read More

  • HP Wants To Become Apple. WebOS Is The Key

    HP Wants To Become Apple. WebOS Is The Key

    In season 1 of AMC’s hit show Mad Men, Rachel Menken comes to the advertising firm Sterling Cooper because she wants to give her department store, Menken’s, a makeover, so to speak. She wants to transform it from a successful department store into an elite one. “What kind of people do you want [coming into your store]?,” Creative Director Don Draper asks Menken. Read More

  • Will HP put the Palmpad and Windows 7 Slate head to head?

    Palmpad, eh? That sounds nice and could signal a sort-of departure from the normal slate business model. HP might be prepping more than one tablet product line. Perhaps the Windows 7 Slate project isn’t dead after all. We all know the story. HP bought Palm for a billion dollars, partly for the webOS mobile phone platform. Said operating system will soon be found in other HP devices… Read More

  • Report: HP stops Android tablet development leaving webOS as the likely Slate operating system (yay!)

    HP was apparently working on an Android tablet along with a Windows 7 and webOS model. Yeah, all three at the same time. The Android flavor was even scheduled for a late-2010 release. But the project was reportable canned just like the Windows 7 edition. That’s probably for the best, really. It’s not that surprising to hear that HP had three different versions of the Slate in… Read More

  • 3 lessons HP hopefully learned from the iPad

    The HP webOS Slate is one-step closer to the market now that HP officially owns Palm. It has a real chance to be the iPad-alternative of choice when it launches later this year. Hopefully HP engineers and designers have been taking notes about the iPad from the beginning because even though the iPad is selling like Girl Scout cookies, it’s far from perfect. The Apple branding alone is… Read More

  • HP Completes $1.2 Billion Acquisition Of Palm, Plans webOS Slate PCs And Netbooks

    HP Completes $1.2 Billion Acquisition Of Palm, Plans webOS Slate PCs And Netbooks

    As widely expected following the approval by Palm shareholders, the acquisition of the company by Hewlett-Packard for roughly $1.2 billion has today been announced closed. The price, as previously announced, is $5.70 per share of Palm common stock, paid in cash. Once again, HP repeats that it intends to double down on the innovative webOS platform and Palm’s line of smartphone. The… Read More

  • Palm pays developers to create applications

    Palm certainly has been working on getting their app store populated. They kicked off a promotion back in February, which is ending soon, and has resulted in over 400 developers splitting up their share of a million dollars. Palm is also trying to increase interest in their applications by offering a 50% discount on the majority of their catalog, starting immediately. The good news for… Read More

  • HP's CTO makes more noises about Slate not running Windows

    At a recent conference about tablets and the future of publishing, there was a Q&A with the CTO of HP’s person systems group. While he used typical CTO doubletalk, there was a few nuggets of information to be gleaned from his rather cryptic words on the future of products like HP’s Slate PC. Read More

  • HP not out of the WebOS smartphone business after all

    Now doesn’t this make you feel better? Mark Hurd at HP originally said that there would be no more WebOS smartphones… but now there will be! A Christmas miracle! He said: When we look at the market, we see an array of interconnected devices, including tablets, printers, and of course, smartphones. We believe webOS can become the backbone for many of HP’s small form… Read More

  • HP Taiwan VP confirms webOS plans, indicates the Slate is on track for 2010 launch

    Well this is good to know. An HP Taiwan VP apperently let it slip that HP is working on mobile devices powered by webOS. It’s a shocker, I know. You would think that after HP spent over a billion dollars buying Palm, they would archive all of the acquired intellectual properties and keep moving forward with Microsoft platforms. Interestingly though, Mr. Monty Wong, VP of Personal… Read More

  • The top 5 HP products we would like to see, post-Palm buyout

    HP didn’t just drop $1.2 billion on Palm to simply sit on the assets. There have to be major plans in the works to leverage webOS and slam out some killer consumer devices. This could be huge for not only both companies, but for you and me. Read More

  • Palm Post: Another Exec Set To Take Off

    Palm has seen better days. Following the departure of senior vice president of software, Michael Abbott (who landed at Twitter), the company has been offering packages to try and keep other executives around. That may not be working so well. Caitlin Spaan, Palm’s vice president of carrier marketing will be leaving the company shortly as well, we’ve learned. This was likely not an… Read More

  • WebOS vulnerability found, patched by Palm in latest release

    What to make of this WebOS exploit? It was discovered by the Intrepidus Group security firm, and it has to do with the way the operating system handles SMS messages. Basically, WebOS doesn’t perform a common security check on incoming SMS messages, meaning that any craftily formed SMS can essentially take out the entire phone. Read More

    Good news, Palm fans! If you’ve taken a break from jamming on the “Update” button, it’s time to go tap it one last time: the rollout of webOS 1.4 has just begun. The catch: it seems that it’s only for Sprint handsets right now (Update: In the US, that is – it’s also available on O2 UK, O2 Germany, O2 Ireland, and Movistar in Europe), with the Verizon… Read More
