HP says all its future smartphones are going to use the webOS, and it won't be offering devices with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7. This announcement comes a few weeks after HP acquired the webOS along with Palm, Inc.
Smartphone sales are poised for major growth over the next three months, with Apple and HTC on the upswing in consumer preferences and Motorola and RIM on the downswing, says a new survey by ChangeWave.
Cellular communications and Wi-Fi networks were at one time bitter foes. Recently, the hostility has abated and rather than competitive alternatives, the two are viewed as complimentary services.
While some studies claim that cell phone radiation and frequent use of cell phones can be hazardous to your health, there is still no concrete evidence linking cell phones to illnesses and death.
Now that it owns Palm, HP has opened a phone store where it is offering the Palm Pre Plus for free to those who are switching to AT&T or Verizon to get this webOS-based smartphone. The Palm Pixi Plus is widely available for free with contract.
A half price sale in the webOS App Catalog started last month, and this has now been extended for several more weeks. This allows customers to pick up software for the Palm Pre and Pixi at bargain basemant prices.
HP has officially completed its acquisition of Palm, Inc. As a division of the world's largest computer maker, Palm will continue to make smartphones running the webOS, as well as other devices using this consumer-oriented operating system.
Only 10% of unwanted cell phones are recycled annually, according to the EPA. And that may be an optimistic estimate. Why is the number so low, and what can be done about it?
In a conference call with developers yesterday, Palm promised that it has new models based on the webOS in the pipeline, though it declined to be more specific. Many are hoping the company will introduce a new flagship smartphone soon.
Although smartphones have become quite advanced, there is one area they are very weak: printing. HP is hoping to change that with a line of printers that will allow virtually any mobile device to print documents.
HP's CEO says his company isn't planning to use the newly-acquired webOS to go into the smartphone business, but will employ this operating system in "small form factor web-connected devices".
In the midst of ongoing research, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now saying that there is scientific evidence to suggest that cell phones do not pose a significant health risk as a result of radio frequency (RF) energy.
