PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Not too long ago, a lot of people were pleasantly surprised when HP announced it would buy smartphone maker Palm. While Palm launched a very well-received mobile operating system, the hardware it ran on was of questionable quality, leading to lower-than-expected sales and thus financial problems. Now that HP has bought Palm, we're certainly going to see the webOS running on top-notch smartphones, right? Well, not if it's up to HP CEO Mark Hurd. Update: This gives a slightly different angle.

Excellent question.

I've heard much about the good webOS and the Palm Pre. Searched for videos on Youtube and saw a dog slow Pre Plus booting in 2 minutes and XX seconds. Reaction? "Never, ever".

I don't see how they'll manage to put it in printers. I already have a Deskjet F4580 wifi printer, which gets ready to print in a little more than 30 seconds... I know I would hate it if I had to do more than switch it on, print 3 or 4 pages, turn it off until the next time I need to print something. Which hasn't happened in the past two months.
