HP could include webOS in printers of the future

After acquiring Palm, HP is quick to get off the mark by finding a way to utilize the webOS plaform, and according to HP CEO Mark Hurd, “We expect to leverage webOS in a number of form factors, including slates and Web-connected printers. We’ve got a whole series of Web-connected printers now and as they connect to the Web, they need an OS.” Hmmm, a webOS-powered printer makes some sense, since it would throw in a whole new way of interacting with your printer, although do expect prices of such new printers to rise by some margin if they were to be released. Imagine waiting for a multiple page document to print, while you keep yourself entertained with a webOS-powered game on the touchscreen display.
