With rumours over the iPad and iPhone 4 out of the way, there's plenty of time for tech fanboys, geeks and journalists (not to mention monstrous combinations of all three) to speculate over what the nuances of the yet sight unseen Hewlett Packard tablet. On Monday, a tidbit about the tablet--that it'll be called the PalmPad--surfaced. Back when HP purchased brow-beaten tech giant Palm, they were blunt in saying that a tablet PC utilizing Palm's webOS was most certainly in the card. Bully on both counts.
Well that didn't take long. After finalizing the purchase of beleaguered mobile tech company Palm back on the first of July, Hewlett Packard has already filed the company's first patent under the banner of their new acquisition. Will HP's newly acquired webOS be able to gain traction in a mobile market that at this time belongs to iOS and Android?
Okay, so the world didn't
change. Steve Jobs came out, unveiled the iPad, it was pretty much most
of what we'd come to expect by this point with a surprise or two thrown
in. Seriously, Apple, AT&T again? That we didn't see coming.
you know what you should see coming? A week's worth of articles, sliced
and diced, chopped and grated, and summarized for your pleasure below. Who says the only thing going on is the freaking Super Bowl?
