Palm, the creators of the acclaimed webOS platform, has an important announcement to make - important enough to skip CES at least and hold its own special event on February 9th.
Posted via the official Palm blog, the announcement was accompanied by a rather upbeat poem that hints at what may be up to four new devices incoming from the smartphone pioneer.
A link nestled inside one of the lines takes visitors to the actual announcement, which boasts a banner saying: ‘Think big. Think small. Think beyond.’
Think big is obviously a tablet (big), which HP has made no secret about. Think small could well be a new, actual successor to the Pre. And think beyond? We are thinking webOS toaster. Hey, why not?
HP is all about convergence and is obviously keen to expand webOS to other devices and all eyes will be on the tech giant next month to determine if it was a good business decision to pay $1.2 billion in summer to acquire Palm last summer.
With Google’s Android outpacing even the iPhone and emerging players like Windows Phone 7 in the fray for market share, whatever HPalm has been cooking up will have to make a damn good first impression and we can’t wait to find out.
