Continuing its hot streak of being a hotly debated topic all around, some might have been taken off guard by RIM's choice of choosing the PlayBook moniker for their tablet as opposed to other names like the BlackPad or SurfBook. Now, the next tablet name that'll be in the minds of people will be the one coming from HP's camp which is going to be powered by their tried and true webOS platform – and is scheduled for a 2011 release.

Although it's a safe bet to refer to it as a webOS powered tablet, some interesting tid bits managed to ooze out of an analyst meeting which was held today. Specifically, HP's Todd Bradley referred to this upcoming device as the "PalmPad," which is interesting since HP filed a trademark for that back in July. He said, “We've already announced the expansion of our future product portfolio well beyond smartphones. We'll have a webOS-powered PalmPad that will be set for release early in 2011.”

Now it's rather difficult to say whether or not it accidentally slipped out, but would nevertheless seem like a fitting name. Still, we never know what to expect when it comes down to model names.

I think it should be named the HP Palm Pilot Slate. Cus whenever I would tell people I have a Palm Pre, they would say "Palm? As in Palm Pilot?" So that name has a lot of cache in the masses minds.
