lg webos hp acquire palm

LG purchased webOS when smartphones and tablets powered by it didn’t achieve much commercial success. HP even launched a fire sale of its webOS tablet just to get rid of the inventory that would have otherwise gathered dust in warehouses. The Korean manufacturer has confirmed that it is going to unveil a webOS powered gadget very soon. LG is going to unveil its webOS smart TV at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 next month and rumor has it that the operating system is going to retain its unique “cards” interface.

The cards interface allowed for effective multitasking, and we’ve seen it inspire multitasking interfaces in Android and iOS. The Wall Street Journal has heard from an anonymous source that LG webOS TV is going to retain the cards interface. Not much has been revealed about this TV, it is believed to be powered by a 2.2GHz dualcore processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. While the company hasn’t confirmed anything about the interface, it has mentioned in the past that it was revamping the interface, and that it would be a “game changer.” The company has already confirmed that it will finally unveil this TV at CES 2014, so its only a matter of days before we finally know what the revamped webOS looks like.
