HP: webOS also coming to notebooks and desktop computers
Ars Technica
Ryan Paul shares more details about HP’s plans for its webOS platform.

“Although the new Touchpad tablet was the highlight of HP’s (recent) press event, the company also dropped some tantalizing hints about its future plans for the webOS platform. HP says that it plans to bring the operating system to a wide range of form factors and expects to eventually ship it on desktop and notebook computers. One of the most intriguing innovations that HP demonstrated was the seamless communication between its webOS devices. For example, users can share a Web page URL between a Touchpad tablet and the Pre 3 by simply tapping them together. The prospect of being able to take advantage of cross-device syncing and communication across the full spectrum of mobile devices and desktop computers seems extremely compelling.”
