webOS tablet gets official for early 2011 release

HP recently held its earnings call and one important tidbit to surface during the call is that the long anticipated and expected webOS tablet is coming in early 2011. A bunch of computer makers are trying to get investors and analysts excited by the prospects of a tablet that can complete with the iPad.

We have known that the webOS tablet would be a product that HP would be tossing onto the market since it gobbled up Palm specifically to get the operating system. HP is already putting webOS to work in internet connected printers and other places.

I think that there are still a lot of people out there who want to see webOS land on a smartphone that is better than the Pre and the Pixi. Better hardware would have gone a long way towards making webOS a stronger weapon in the smartphone wars.
