    Hi all,

    I found this interesting, I think all of us Palm fans will too!

    Take care,

    Jay

    WebOS tablet from HP to be called ‘Palmpad’?

    WebOS tablet from HP to be called ‘Palmpad’?

    When HP picked up Palm it was clear that they aren’t just looking at the Pre (smartphones). They are interested in the awesome software poweress of Palm and WebOS is exactly what they wanted on the Slate. So out goes Android / Windows 7 and in comes the Palm WebOS. So after promises and hopes of a WebOS tablet and other gizmos, it seems we have some hint on whats cooking over at HP-Palm.

    Crunchgear reports that HP has applied for a trademark that reads ‘PALMPAD’. Its a no-brainer that this would be the HP tablet powered by the Palm team. But is the final name of this tablet the Palmpad? or just one of the many names HP is securing to play around with? Nevertheless we are excited for sure!

    I like the name. The next version of it could be called the 'Palm Pad Plus'.

    Like the name - hope it will get some good publicity as an alternative to the iPad.

    I don't need no pads thanks.

    HP Slate has a bit of originality and I don't see HP leaving out their name, which would after all be more marketable.

    Maybe they are doing this to take the name out of circulation.

    I called it WAYYYYYYY back when. Well ok, a few of us did. I will be one of the first in line for a PalmPad with WebOS. There are times that I would just like something smaller for the quick on the go hops yet more real estate than a smartphone.

    Not many people realise, but everyone stole 'pad' from Apple. IBM, using a Time Capsule stolen from Apple, travelled backwards in time to use the 'pad' name.

    HI all,

    How about Palmpad from HP? This uses both names effectively!

    Take care,

    Jay

    I like the idea of PalmPad as a brand name, but I do hope that they use Hurricane for the model, much better ring to it.
