HP’s Nova Dartfish In The Works
Hewlett-Packard has said in the past that its Mobile WebOS platform could be used on platforms other than smartphones and tablets. With this information in mind, HP is creating a new device that will essentially be a laptop running the mobile OS. The screen resolution will be a meager 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, identical to the HP TouchPad and have full support for WiFi, Bluetooth, and a non-swappable battery.
The leak came from a developer log intended to be kept secret, and came soon after Google announced its Chromebook at Google’s I/O. HP also announced cloud computing plans earlier this month, hinting that perhaps the Nova Dartfish will use HP’s cloud infrastructure to create a device similar to Chrome notebook.
After all, why does Google get to have all the market share? We’ve seen the WebOS working on a laptop before, which lends more evidence that HP will create a netbook-spec laptop very similar to the Chromebook. This is a very young leak and is all based on a leaked log and a few observations but we will write more once HP officially announces any such notebook. Until then, please don’t spear any Nova Dartfish, we don’t care how hungry you are!
