webOS launch in San Francisco!
We showed a true webOS smart phone, the Veer, no larger than your credit card yet a fully capable smart phone running the latest webOS. We demonstrated a true workhorse, Pre 3, with a beautiful big screen and a qwerty keyboard. At the same time, we launched the HP TouchPad, a large beautiful tablet running the same webOS.
Let’s then think about the products together. Touch and share. Download and study information about the Sharks today’s game on your Touch Pad. Then, touch the pad with your Veer before leaving home – and take the information with you to go. This is pretty close to my old vision – now just much better implemented!
And, with webOS, you can use the small phone to so much more than just talking. Veer is a true full featured smart phone. And for a tablet, I claim the webOS is better than any other OS for that form factor.
There are three aspects that, in my mind, make webOS so great:
- It is designed for cloud. Synergy is a part of the webOS running in the cloud.
- It is task oriented. The highly scalable UI promotes tasks and activities you want to perform. You can do you task on a small screen or on a big screen – but instead of concentrating on launching apps it concentrates on getting your things done.
But I wanna talk more about these later. Now, let’s party!
