Hewlett Packard executive Todd Bradley has for the first time referred to the upcoming webOS tablet of the company, giving it a name. The executive vice president of the Personal Systems Group, at an analyst meeting, said that HP would push the product range beyond smartphones and would introduce a “webOS-powered PalmPad”, which would be released early in 2011.
The PalmPad branding has not surfaced for the first time with this occasion. Earlier this year, it appeared in a USPTO trademark application. What features the device would have is still unclear, but it is believed to be based on an ARM processor and also integrate a multi-touch display.
Todd Bradley recently brought into light the tablet strategy of the company, which intends to take advantage of a more than $40 billion valued market. Team members are focused on building the application market and enhancing the webOS software. They are also expected to continue the expansion of the platform and attract more mobile devices.
