It wasn’t all that long ago (On February 9th, to be specific) HP announced the next big step in the HP vision for webOS. We finally lifted the veil to talk about the HP TouchPad tablet and two new phones, the HP Veer and HP Pre3. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m psyched to lay hands upon a TouchPad after playing with it during that event, but what got me really excited is seeing where webOS goes next. When we first talked about how the OS will live across devices – and even on PCs – a light bulb went off for me.
First, this could expand the definitions of what we consider “connected devices.” Second, I’m already envisioning how these devices will speed up data flow and keep everything in sync. Or synergy. Or whatever. But how will this affect your day-to-day life? Check out this quick youtube clip where Stephen DeWitt, the senior vice president and general manager of HP’s Personal Systems Group in the Americas, delves a little deeper to discusses HP’s webOS vision…and talk about some of the cool opportunities this platform could bring to developers.
As Stephen puts it, “your applications, your content, the things that are of value to you have to be presented to you on the right form factor, in the right place, at the right time. That, in essence, is what webOS is all about.”
But what are you about? What would you like to see come out of this vision of an interconnected future? Share your thoughts in the comment box below.
