HP will still be using Palm's webOS in tablets

Hewlett-Packard's CEO Meg Whitman has confirmed in an interview on Friday that the webOS, which is now going open source, will still be used by the company and in the larger touch screen tablet devices.

Technology news website The Verge has published an interview with the CEO of HP, after the future of the operating system moving to an open source model was made public at the very end of last week.

The website asked Meg Whitman ‘Will HP be creating any new webOS hardware?', where the answer came back 'yes but what I can't tell you is whether that will be in 2012 or not. But we will use webOS in new hardware', whilst going on to elaborate, ‘I would think tablets, I do not believe we will be in the smartphone business again'.

This was after the follow up question of ‘Are we talking printers? Or tablets and phones?', which was backed up with ‘But tablets are a real possibility?' by the website - with HP's CEO confirming once again, ‘Yes'.

HP announced at mid-August that it will stop making webOS based devices, which included the Palm Pre and Pixi range of smartphones and the HP TouchPad tablet where this news is a reprieve for the platform.
