    The other company who really understands this OS vision and opportunity is HP. It did not buy Palm and its Web OS just for use in smartphones. The Palm OS is also highly extensible and will power the new Palm smartphones, as well as HP's printers, tablets and netbooks, and it could be integrated into many other digital devices in the future. Palm OS also has a solid SDK and will develop an app ecosystem that also can be used across devices, making it, potentially, the third key OS used on all of the screens in our lives.[/QUOTE]

    This was a very interesting article that looked past the smartphones to what some call a "digital ecosystem" and envisioned an OS that could work across multiple devices. Exactly what HP has been touting as the future of HP webOS. Nice catch OP!

    Nice to see webOS talked up, but this is kind of a pointless article and the guy doesn't really seem to know the systems he is talking about. For example, he says about MeeGo: "Today it is aimed at smartphones and could eventually find its way onto a tablet, but it would need a great deal of work to make it a true cross-device platform OS". If you just look at the front page of meego.com, you can see that Nokia and Intel would beg to differ.

    I agree with the article. Now we all wait in anticipation to see what HP/Palm does next with HP webOS
