PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And here's to the good stuff. When HP bought Palm a few weeks ago, the computer giant made it very clear they are going to put the webOS on a tablet, and maybe even on a netbook. While it has never been a secret that the webOS actually runs just fine on x86, nobody ever tried to actually boot it on real hardware. Until now, that is - and it works, without any modifications.

Thinking about it, I guess you're right. The HP tablet won't be a PC per se, but it will be a completely different system than the other Linux distros.
It won't matter if it's run on arm or X86 because it will it own specific applications.

Therefore, my guess is that it will be taking the route of the "iTable".
