This isn't new news
Ive been waiting for that tablet and the next generation of webos phones
to come out for a while. HP announced it as their plan as soon as they
bought Palm. They are going to include WebOS in every thing even a
striped down version as an embedded OS in their printers. the
announcement last year of the Web OS based tablet is the primary reason
I havent considered buying an ebook reader yet.
