HP WebOS Tablet PC

Early last year saw the acquisition of Palm by HP, which changed the market dynamics for HP as well as Palm and also Microsoft. Soon after the acquisition, HP announced its plans for surging forward using the WebOS platform to change the way tablets and smart phones work. At that time, there were rumors that HP would be releasing the PalmPad, carrying the Palm name forward with the new product line. In the later part of 2010, the HP Slate made its rounds in the news. Recent information available shows two tablets, namely the Topaz and the Opal, doing the rounds, without any official announcements from HP yet.

Around the time that HP bought Palm, there was also news that the long-standing Microsoft Windows Phone 7 OS, integrated on the HP product, would be closed. Palm was also in very advanced stages of development of Android devices, and prototypes of the same were also unveiled. This product, probably the HP Slate, was expected to be introduced well in advance of the WebOS product planned for early 2011.

The WebOS tablet PCs are expected in the market sometime in June 2011. Taiwan-based Inventec would probably be kicking off shipments even as early as March. Of course, HP in their standard method would take up the software testing after the so-called introduction of the product well before the actual launch is really announced. So, June or even September could be the right period for the product to be available on the shelves. Recent leaks of information indicate the HP Opal and Topaz tablets sporting 9 inch and 7 inch displays, 1.2 GHz processors, probably a front facing camera, micro USB port and maybe even speakers for audio.

Specifications of the Palm Topaz and Opal tablets seem to be getting more and more a reality with news of the same appearing indicating the Qualcomm dual-core processor, 9.7-inch fingerprint proof Gorilla glass, Adreno GPU, 16 / 32 / 64 GB flash storage, 512MB on-board RAM, Wi-Fi speakers with HP Beats Audio technology, Accelerometer, eCompass, Gyro, Light Sensor, Microphone, 3.5mm audio jack, approximately 13mm thick, etc.

New and different technologies like Touchstone v2, wireless charging, website and picture sharing, audio streaming via Bluetooth and speaker dock, maps and directions, contact sharing, printing, video-streaming, and gaming, will definitely make an impact in the market.

However, indications also point to the fact that HP would definitely revive their WebOS program and would not be outsourcing or sharing this, holding it proprietary for time to come. The WebOS and cloud features that HP plans to introduce, may well change the perspective of smart phones and with the probable integration of the WebOS with Microsoft Server and desktop application and services, the evolution of the mobile computing market is definitely a revolution in the offing.

HP TouchPad™ tablet unveiled

2011 can definitely be termed the year of the tablets. A tablet is a portable device which can be used to perform basic computing tasks. Tablets come with touch screens and also have multi-touch features. HP has been known over time as an innovator and a technological giant in the field of instrumentation, IT and applied IT enabled services like cloud computing.

Microsoft made a mark for itself with the Windows platform, Apple with the the iOS platform, and HP looks like will be setting a new trend with its WebOS platform. After their Mac series, Apple has been in the limelight the last four years with their smartphone technology and the iOS. Apple innovatively brought the smartphone with a sleek design and structured functionality with more than 4 lakh apps.

After the takeover of Palm last year, HP has combined the strength of Palm and the technology of HP, to deliver the next generation tablet, which could probably compete with the likes of Apple iPad and Android based smartphone manufacturers.

The HP TouchPad has an extremely user friendly WebOS interface. The new generation TouchTone technology, the 9.7 inch capacitive, multi-touch screen, Wi-Fi and 3G versions, large storage options, video conferencing cameras, Bluetooth, and wireless charging, are features par excellence. The sleek 13.7 mm thick TouchPad brings in HP’s own Beats Audio engine with the unique tap-to-share feature besides cloud computing options. The 1.2 Giga Hertz, dual core, Snapdragon CPU with a range of sensors inbuilt, including Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Compass, Notification light, and full connectivity with 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, AGPS and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, a powerful battery and stereo speakers as well as microphone, make the tablet unique. The superb user interface of the HP TouchPad is definitely unmatchable, in comparison to Android or iOS. HP Synergy brings in powerful e-mail application and integration as also a wonderful pop-up notification system, VPN support, Google Docs / Quick Office / Drop Box / Box.net compatibility.

HP, the leader in printing technology, has also provided the feature in the tablet for wireless printing with compatible printers in the network. The activity card feature, for visualizing and organizing multiple panels of work, games, e-mails and even grouping of related cards in stacks or automatic stacking is a feature unique to the HP tablet. Making video calls and seeing your photos from Facebook, Snapfish and Photo-Bucket as also collaborating with other users using Google Docs or Box.net are interesting. Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and really high speed browsing of the web is what one looks forward to.

HP plans to launch PCs that can run WebOS

In this competitive world each and every company is developing new techniques to maintain a remarkable position. WebOS is an operating system used in mobile phones. This is a futuristic plan which HP would be implementing in the next year. This would definitely create a new segment in the market and would attract customers. WebOS was first introduced by Palm in the year 2009. This operating system is the successor of Palm OS. The formation of WebOS was by collecting similar things and then combining them so that they work together to sort out many functions. It works on the Linux kernel. This operating system uses the Web 2.0 technology. HP acquired Palm in the year 2010 for the WebOS operating system. The best part of WebOS is the Synergy feature. Through the accounts in Google, Yahoo!, and Facebook, a user can collect information from many resources. Even for messaging, Synergy integrates all the conversations of each contact and makes it a single chat style window. The WebOS utilizes the Webkit layout engine.

The company has decided to use the mobile operating system, that is, WebOS in the desktops. HP has announced that the personal computers that will be shipped in 2012 will be having the ability to run WebOS. The intention behind the introduction of WebOS is to attract the software developers to create applications for the WebOS ecosystem. HP has also prepared the first tablet with WebOS. Since the company is presenting the WebOS along with the other features like tablets, smart phones and third party developers, there would be a bigger audience for vending this application. The basic idea behind including WebOS in the personal computer is to enlarge the developer ecosystem. WebOS has almost 7000 applications inbuilt in it. This particular feature helps HP to be the leading one in the market. Data security is also an important point that HP is paying emphasis on. HP has chosen to increase the device security. This would increase the amount of data that can be secured by the customers.

Either the WebOS will be working as the main operating system or it will be integrated in the Windows. HP is actually trying to bring this technology to the masses and take over the market.
