HP webOS Special Announcement Scheduled for February 9th

The first part of the year is always a busy one companies, and with as much talk about what HP is bringing to the tablet for not only smartphones, but tablets as well, in the year 2011, an announcement from HP that they've got a special announcement coming up in just over a month comes as a welcomed surprise.

Palm Pre 2 for Verizon Appears in Best Buy’s System, Still Not Available

It's been over two months since the Palm Pre 2 was announced, with the company saying that the Verizon version of the device would be released "in the coming months." The handset's available in Europe, and you can even buy yourself a GSM-based unlocked version of the second generation Pre, but there hasn't been any word on the handset landing on Verizon since its announcement. Of course, there's been rumors, but nothing official. And while seeing the Pre 2 appear in Best Buy's system is no indicator as to when, exactly, the handset will be showing up for sale, at least we know that the retailer is getting ready to sell it. And that's a pretty good step forward.

While the Palm Pre 2 may be making the rounds over in some European countries right now, as well as in GSM form, and unlocked here in the States, there are several fans of the new device, and primarily webOS 2.0, that are (trying to) wait patiently for the device to land on Verizon.

And sure enough, someone with one of those devices put it up on eBay, where you could have been the lucky buyer. Until the auction got pulled.

HP/Palm’s Jon Rubinstein made Amazon director: Kindle tablet in his remit?

Amazon has quietly announced that ex-Palm CEO and current HP SVP Jon Rubinstein has joined as a director. The news, part of a security and exchange commission filing, does not suggest that Rubinstein's role as director will include, but it's possible that he could assist in Amazon's development of a Kindle-brand tablet to better compete with the iPad and Barnes & Noble NOOKcolor.

Speculation regarding an Amazon tablet has been circulating for some time, though the company has resolutely stuck to the party line that it is focused on its Kindle range of dedicated ebook readers.
