HP's TouchPad tablet will come out in June and the company hopes to get its WebOS operating system onto 100 million devices, chief executive Leo Apotheker said on Monday.

Apotheker was speaking at the HP Summit in San Francisco. According to a report of his presentation from PreCentral.net, he said the tablet's release would be followed by "wave after wave of technology coming out to support the WebOS platform". The plan is to have WebOS running on TouchPads, PCs, smartphones and printers.

HP's chief said last week that the company would preinstall WebOS on its PCs from next year. He said on Monday that a beta would come out at the end of this year "running on a browser".
