HP Palm webOS Booting on PC: Slate next?

You have to hand it to PreCentral user cdowers, has he taken the very popular webOS and got it booting on a PC, which you can see for yourself in the video below. Now that we know that a standard version of webOS can boot from a Dell C600 — this makes us wonder if HP and Palm will now consider making a Slate device with webOS as its mobile operating system platform?

According to PreCentral, you have to take the webOS image from the emulator and then transfer it to an IDE hard drive — this means that the mobile OS is booting from a real machine and not a virtual one. So we now know that it is also possible for HP to have a netbook running on webOS, would this be something that you would like to see?

This would not be an easy task, as there would be a number of challenges to overcome. However, with both HP and Palm able to pull its resources together — we have to wonder if almost anything is possible now.

If Apple is able to make its iPhone OS run on its iPad tablet device, then running Palm’s webOS on HP’s Slate device would be a much better solution than running a full version of Window 7.
