HP has invited the press to an event in San Francisco on February 9 where the company says it has to announce something webOS related. The E-Mail teases "Think big", "Think small", Think beyond" which sounds like tablet(s) (big), smartphone(s) (small) and services/connectivity (beyond). Sure, it was rumored that HP Palm might release a tablet anytime sooner or later, and webOS might be the perfect mobile OS for tablets but we have to wait and see. In terms of new smartphones, webOS lovers can only hope that HP Palm will come around the corner with a totally new and groundbreaking hardware design - nobody wants to see a Palm Pre 3 which looks like the Palm Pre, Palm Pre Plus or Palm Pre 2.
In any case, HP Palm has still a couple more das to fine tune its 2011 portfolio of devices and services! Let's hope they'll do so and we might see the final portfolio during next month's Mobile World Congress as well.
