Many consumers are now adopting into the kind of style and innovation slate computers offers them. With this, they have come into mind of making their own competitive version using the new acquired WebOS operating system from the Palm.

New era of Slate Computers

Slate computers or most popularly known as the tablet computers are designed in a touch screen basis but with the functions of a desktop computers.

Since the last released of the Apple’s iPad, consumers have been shifting their way and sense of style on choosing the right computers for them. With Apple’s increase of revenue from the tremendous sale of iPad alone, businessmen and rival companies have concluded the new approach and trend the slate computers brought in today’s time.

New HP Hurricane tablet for Q3 2010 release

All iPad users that thought that their tablet had a monopoly in the market can now be proved wrong. If you look at the market right now you would be convinced that there is nothing in this word that is beautiful or could even come remotely close to the iPad tablet. But it looks like this might not last for long, there could be other strong competitors in the market and they could give the Apple iPad a run for its money. It could also work the other way round, where the other tablets could slump off their sales in the market, leaving the iPad to rule the roost.

New Competition?

Continuing with the news about other tablets making its way into the market and raising the competitive bar for the iPad is something to vouch for especially in the context of HP Slate. The original plan for the HP Slate which is a tablet created by Hewlett Packard was that it was to run on the a Windows 7 OS. It seemed that HP was very eager to make known to the world about their ingenious plan and the deal that they had devised along with Palm.

However this is what probably most of us would not know especially if we are stuck onto the idea about HP and Windows 7. HP has only in the very recent times made an announcement that went public and took some of those who were desperately waiting for the HP Slate along with Windows 7 by surprise. The news now is that HP will be doing away with Windows 7 as their operating system, as they have planned on “Doubling down on webOS” in other words this also means that the HP products will carry webOS within them. Now those who do not know what the webOS is all about, then here is a small hint; it’s the OS on mobiles, the one that many feel would be a full rounder if used on the Apple iPhone OS.

Release date of HP Hurricane

The new HP tablet with the webOS will now be renamed as the HP Hurricane and is scheduled to be released in the 3rd quarter of 2010, which is some months from now. The change in the webOS is confirmed news from HP insiders. If you are still looking for some news tidbits, then there is none for now apart from the new webOS.

Competition in the tablet market will soon steam up and we will soon see a range of manufactures eying for that viable spot in the market. However who makes it to the top, will only have to be seen in the near future, especially when international sales of the HP hurricane kick off. Till its release, users will have to continue to be content with the iPad. With the competition only heating up further we might get in some more news about the HP Hurricane.

Smart dust technology could still take a while

Kris Pister a researcher from the 1990’s had a dream that no one of his time thought could turn into reality. His dream was simple, scatter sensor like devices just like dust over the earth. These sensors were thought of not being anything bigger than the size of a grain of rice. He called these no bigger than a grain of rice particles “Smart Dust.

These particles would have the ability to monitor everything right from wireless radios, sensing equipment wireless radios and a lot more. All this because of simple computing power, you would have information at your finger tips like information on cities, information on people and even their natural environment.

This revolutionary idea is no longer a dream, infact after all these years we now see it coming to reality. One mans vision is another man’s invention that’s what we would like to call it.

Pister who is now a computing professor and teaching at the University of California, Berkeley seems to be very thrilled about his idea coming to life. Although it was 14 years ago that he had dreamt if this technological phase, it is finally being devised.

Hewlett-Packard had made an announcement a few days ago, that it was working on a new project that they call “Central Nervous System for the Earth.” The company has planned it big and has mentioned that it would look at computing trillion sensors that would be scattered in every part of the planet.

The devices that HP would create will not only check our ecosystems regularly but would also help in knowing beforehand if there is any possibility of natural disasters occurring. The plan is huge, and its use is seamless, the possibilities are endless as well. HP says that the particles will also help in reducing the accident rates worldwide.

The move will begin around two years later; this was mentioned by the senior research Pete Hartwell at the HP lab in Palo Alto. The company has already teamed up with Royal Dutch Shell so that it can go ahead and install about 1 million of those minute monitoring particles. This move will help in oil exploration simply by checking the movement and vibrations in rocks. The sensors will work across an area that spans 6sq miles.

The sensors that HP has already manufactured are around the size of a VHS tape, and that is after all the sensors are put into a box so as to protect it. These sensors although the size of a matchbox are 1,000 times powerful than what you have in your Smartphone’s!

However the idea of Smart Dust may still take a while to make its appearance. You have to give technology time to come up with ways and plans so that sensors are no bigger than a few millimetres. Researches at Berkeley are working endlessly at this possibility of creating smart dust that can be sprinkled casually around the surface of the earth. It might take us a while before we come to that phase of technology.

HP aims for the Palm

Hewlett Packard has announced on last Wednesday that it will buy the industry’s struggling dwarf, Palm for $1.2 Billion. The announcement has triggered the shares of Palm to increase their value by about 28%.  This move marks the entrance of HP into the smart phone segment, a company more known as the one of the world’s largest desktop and laptop manufacturer.

HP’s vice president Todd Bradley has issued a statement that HP aims to build up on Palm’s innovative technology for the mobile platform and also expand on it. Palm has been struggling to survive in the cut throat competition since a long time. Ever since the Palm Pre and its sister phone the Pixi failed, Palm has been given the choice to either sell itself or declare bankruptcy by industry analysts. The last few months quite a few rumours have been floated about the potential buyers for Palm. First it was HTC which was rumoured to buy Palm but soon HTC backed out. There were also rumours of Lenovo considering to buy Palm which would enable them to enter the smart phone market. Finally HP has officially announced the takeover.

A lot was expected from the all new webOS from Palm but a wrong marketing strategy, the tremendous success of the iPhone and also the positive reviews for Google’s Android platform had closed the doors for Palm. HP’s takeover of Palm opens a lot of doors for Palm. Palm as a company possesses a lot of bench strength in terms of engineering skill and innovative knowledge. HP can now revive its almost non-existent smart phone business. Also the technology HP’s seeks to gain from this takeover is more in terms of software rather than hardware. Palm’s webOS is a brilliant idea whose potential the company has failed to capitalise on. HP can now build on this platform combining with it its own hardware specialization thereby getting into the mainstream competition in no time. HP also has a worldwide distribution network, another factor which will help in recovering Palm.

The most interesting point to be noted is what HP will do with the webOS. Windows Phone 7 Series has proven itself to be a great OS for the smart phone and every smart phone manufacturer is now intent on releasing Windows based phones along with Android based ones. HP could also go the Apple way and utilize the webOS for tablets. Palm’s takeover also empower HP over any possible legal disputes thanks to Palm’s patents.
