HP bought Palm in April, and we speculated that it wanted to get its hands on the webOS operating system, which powers the Palm Pre and the Palm Pixi Plus, in order to use it on tablet PCs and netbooks.
Palm's smart phones failed to set the world on fire here in the UK, but we loved how innovative and touchably usable the Palm operating system was. If a webOS tablet is done right, it could lead to a more user-friendly and simpler gadget than HP's other upcoming tablet, the HP Slate, which runs Windows 7.
Are you tempted by a giant Palm Pre, or is HP is just covering its bases in case it wants to get into some kind of combination glove/sanitary pad business? Let us know in the comments.
