WebOS Netbooks coming soon from HP

WebOS keeps climbing up the corporate ladder at HP, it seems.  First it was (obviously) smartphones then HP alluded to killing the Microsoft Slate and building a webOS tablet.  Then webOS printers started becoming interesting.

Now, from the ‘HP buys Palm’ closing statement we learn that HP plans some (MacBook Air competing?) Netbooks with the WebOS running behind the scenes.  You ever get the feeling that HP might be a little sick of Microsoft after all of these years?

Palm will be responsible for webOS software development and webOS based hardware products, from a robust smartphone roadmap to future slate PCs and netbooks.

We’re waiting to hear next about webOS calculators and Blade servers in the coming months.
