HP plans to release a webOS powered tablet in Q1 2011
HP placed themselves in the spotlight recently, but unfortunately for them, it didn't involve anything related to their wonderful and eclectic mix of consumers products. The abrupt resignation of ex-CEO Mark Hurd might've given the company some face time in the media, however, things might shift once again after news surfaced regarding a webOS powered tablet. There was an all-hands employee meeting held yesterday when Personal Systems Group VP, Todd Bradley, mentioned some interesting news surrounding a new project that's commencing and is being referred to internally as “Hurricane.” This project is reported to be the all too knowing webOS powered tablet which will bypass the busy holiday season and make its launch some time in Q1 2011 – which we'd imagine would provide them ample time getting this fine tuned and ready for the competition. Since they're going to miss out on the important holiday season, the bar will naturally be set a bit higher since they're already in the process of completing webOS 2.0 – which is something that'll hopefully breathe in some new life to the once fledgling platform.

No one asked for the IPad either, as I recall. But it suddenly became the 'must-have' simply because it existed and it was Apple. I hope a WebOS tablet succeeds. WebOS deserves a better fate than what it's going through now.
