HP’s webOS 2.0 will be making its way to tablets and larger phones, according to an announcement that was made by the company today. On the same day that the company announced that they had recorded large increases in revenue and profit throughout the last quarter, the announcement came that they were looking to further expand their webOS 2.0 operating system to encompass many more devices. With the Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 handset have a large market, it will be interesting to see which devices are targeted by the company with their new operating system.
Scott Miles from HP demoed the OS earlier in the week, showing off an email application and the Chrome browser (the same chrome browser that runs on desktop machines) smoothly running on webOS 2.0.
Perhaps the most interesting piece of the announcement was that apps for the IOS will scale to a number of different aspect ratios, allowing the apps to keep the same appearance and functionality form one device to another, whether it be a point and click device or a touchscreen device.
Enyo is a project that the company has put a lot of stock into. Their ability to cater to what mobile users are looking for has made the new operating system highly anticipated, and the announcement that the OS will support larger devices and smaller devices utilizing the same software makes it a viable option for many different devices.
Enyo will reportedly be available i the first quarter of 2011, and is expected to become a mainstay for years to come. The company also released a video that demoed some of the features from the software that was shown at the NYC technology convention earlier in the day. It will be interesting to see if the software garners enough attention from device manufacturers to compete with some of the larger operating system.
