PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, if we had one of those obnoxious "BREAKING!"-tags on OSNews, this would definitely fit the bill. While we were busy discussing whether HTC or Lenovo would snap up Palm, another major worldwide computer company picked up the Sunnyvale-based mobile outfit: Hewlett-Packard has bought Palm. Updates from the conference call inside.

HP is working at making Windows redundant.

HP is working at making Windows redundant.

It won't be on the desktop right away. It will take awhile. But with HTML5 and Ajax what can't you write application wise for web browsers.

Next, what about SunOffice/OpenOffice? That would give HP and office suits. Sorry but Sun just didn't seem to know what to do with Star/Sun/Open Office after awhile. I don't think Oracle knows what to do with it/how to take advantage of owning it. Maybe HP can do more with it.

Please note: The people outside of Sun seem to know what to do with OpenOffice. Sun/Oracle still owns the rights the StarOffice or whatever it was last called.

Anyway, webos is HP's way of making Windows redundant starting at the low end and they will work their way up. YES, WebOS with HTML5 and Ajax (if they use that) will let them work their way up the chain of their computers.
