Ever since HPO purchased Palm and announced that they would be investing heavily in Palm’s webOS, we knew that they would be producing a tablet computer based on webOS.
Now HP have filed for a trademark, which we expect they will use for their webOS tablet, the trademark is called ‘Palmpad’. HP has recently put on hold the Google Android tablet it was developing and also the Window 7 based one.
HP can obviously see great potential in using Palm’s webOS for a tablet, and with all the investment they are putting into webOS we can expect to see something pretty interesting.
We still have no idea when HP will launch the Palmpad webOS based tablet, and what sort of specifications it will have, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
