Today saw HP unveil some new Pavilion notebooks.

HP-Pavilion-G6-main

Here is the press release:

HP today unveiled Pavilion notebook PCs that delight users with new styles and enhanced features. The updated consumer notebooks PCs reflect HP’s new Mosaic design approach, ensuring that each HP notebook, while individually unique, breathes a common design DNA.

The Mosaic approach is an extension of the MUSE (materials, usability, sensory appeal and experience) design philosophy, introduced in May 2010. Mosaic fuses together the multi-faceted elements of MUSE, including rich colours, premium materials and purposeful shapes, to form one comprehensive design language that spans the consumer notebook portfolio. Similar to a mosaic art piece, each HP notebook line represents a small piece of the canvas that, when combined, builds into a beautiful picture of the HP product family.

HP Pavilion g-series notebook PCs – simple yet distinct

Inspired by close connections and interlocking layers, the redesigned HP Pavilion g6 and g7 feature curved, beveled edges with elements of precision. Available in sparkling black, winter blue and ruby red, the g-series is characterised by its comfort and style, with a set of delicate details to make the products stand out. A bowl-shape keyboard deck with island style keyboard and numeric keypad alongside a textured touchpad with bowl-set curvature define the series’ distinct form. The HP g6 and g7 notebooks allow users to enjoy everyday computing with a series of advanced extras, integrated HP Webcam, Dolby Advanced Audio and Altec Lansing speakers and USB 3.0 for faster file transfers.

The g-series audio experience is enhanced with both design and functional elements. A chrome strip bordering the speaker serves as a visual cue for audio, while the exposed speaker bar provides better sound projection.

HP Pavilion dv-series notebook PCs – powerful yet graceful

Influenced by kinetic energy with its tapered chassis and slim top view, the new HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7 boast a brushed aluminum metal finish and an infinity waterfall edge. The sleek dv-series comes in a chic midnight black colour and thanks to the soft-touch bottom panel, it conforms comfortably to the hand, making it easy to hold. Experience sound like never before with Beats Audio™ technology and four internal speakers. An exposed speaker bar integrated with the display further magnifies the dv-series’ audio experience, projecting sound directly towards the user.

Both the g-series and the dv-series come with HP CoolSense, helping your notebook to operate at a lower temperature, even when running demanding programs and HP ProtectSmart to protect your hard drive should your notebook receive a potentially damaging impact. The dv-series also comes with the HP SimplePass innovation which allows for fingerprint identification for notebook user profiles.

The redesigned HP notebooks with Mosaic design elements are expected to be available on in store at the end of April.

– HP Pavilion g6 and g7 will have a starting price of £399.

– HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7 will have a starting price of £599.

HP today announced the roadmap to full open source status for webOS and the related Enyo platform.  Read on for details.

HPcirclelogo

HP announced a few weeks ago that they intended to contribute webOS, the operating system acquired when they purchased Palm, to the open source community following the failure of the TouchPad.  Today, they announced the plan to release the code.  Here are the important parts of the press release:

HP to Commit webOS to Open Source by Fall 2012

New version of acclaimed Enyo developer tool and source code available now

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 25, 2012

HP today began executing its plan to deliver an open webOS by committing to a schedule for making the platform’s source code available under an open source license.

The company aims to complete this milestone in its entirety by September.

HP also announced it is releasing version 2.0 of webOS’s innovative developer tool, Enyo. Enyo 2.0 enables developers to write a single application that works across mobile devices and desktop web browsers, from the webOS, iOS and Android platforms to the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers – and more. The source code for Enyo is available today, giving the open source community immediate access to the acclaimed application framework for webOS.

By contributing webOS to the open source community, HP unleashes the creativity of hardware and software developers to build a new generation of applications and devices.

“HP is bringing the innovation of the webOS platform to the open source community,” said Bill Veghte, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, HP. “This is a decisive step toward meeting our goal of accelerating the platform’s development and ensuring that its benefits will be delivered to the entire ecosystem of web applications.”

The webOS code will be made available under the Apache License, Version 2.0, beginning with the source code for Enyo.

Last week at CES HP invited us to a private briefing that included their new HP Omni27 All-in-One PC. We got to spend a little time with it and here are our thoughts.

UWHS - HP Omni27 - 1

Let’s just remind ourselves about the Omni27:

The HP Omni27 All-in-One PC is designed specifically for consumers who demand meticulous design, simplicity and performance and an expanding viewing experience. Its elegant flat panel display features edge-to-edge glass and tilts up to 25 degrees, allowing users to adjust the 68.6 cm (27”) diagonal high-definition (HD) screen to their comfort level.

The HP Omni27 features HP’s Magic Canvas software allowing the desktop to expand horizontally and accommodate all the photos, videos and applications consumers need. Windows desktop shortcuts, task bar and start menu can all be accessed through the Magic Canvas allowing users to work without ever leaving the interface. Convenient features like HP LinkUp let users access and edit content from a notebook PC on the Omni27’s large display with virtually no file transfer hassles.

The HP Omni27 offers multi-core processors, advanced HD graphics and up to 2TB of storage.(2) Additionally, standard features such as Beats Audio, and optional ones such as the Blu-Ray disc drive and TV tuner make it the ultimate multimedia machine.

So let’s take a closer look in pictures:

All-in-all (see what we did there), the new Omni27 All-in-One PC packs quite a lot into its body. There is a Blu-ray writer, and there is even an HDMI input so that you can connect other devices to the screen.

I was very impressed on how well the screen performed at different angles – and the quality was excellent.

There are also enough ports to keep most people happy!

I look forward to putting the Omni27 through it’s paces properly, because from the few minutes we got with it, I was very impressed.

The HP Omni27 All-in-One PCs are expected to be available on March 5th in EMEA at a starting price of € 999.
