In the realm of mobile phones, Hewlett-Packard will be making use of the $1.2 billion it recently paid to acquire Palm by launching new phones with Palm’s "webOS" interface "early next year," according to HP’s Eric Cador.
And wouldn’t you know it, those webOS phones will probably go quite nicely with the webOS tablet that HP’s Todd Bradley promised would also come out "in early 2011."
Add to all that the fact that HP and Palm recently rolled out a preview of webOS 2.0 to developers, and all the parts appear to jive with the early 2011 timeframe—likely in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
