HP to Ship All PCs With webOS Option

“Desktop PCs stopped being the hub of much innovation over the
past several years. Notable improvements include the addition of
Windows 7-based models, sleeker designs, speed improvements and
lower prices, but that’s been about it. PCs, including notebooks,
have become commodity items on the CIO’s shopping list.

“But computer giant HP, a leading provider of PCs and notebooks,
plans to set its models apart next year by adding webOS, the
operating system software the company now owns thanks to its
blockbuster $1.2 billion purchase of Palm last year. HP’s CEO Leo
Apotheker told Bloomberg today that starting next year, all of the
PCs HP ships will include the ability to run webOS in addition to
Microsoft’s Windows.”
