We all know that tablets were the rage at CES, but one of the giants, HP-Palm weren’t displaying any webOS 2.0 tablets. As it turns out, they have something bigger planned instead. HP’s Todd Bradley was interviewed by CNBC during CES and it was there he explained why they weren’t showing off their tablets during the show. They have plans to unveil their wide range of webOS 2.0 devices at their own event on February 9. He mentioned that their devices were all about the complete experience they would bring instead of just showing off the latest features and hardware. It wasn’t specifically mentioned that they will be unveiling tablets, but during the interview, there were references to mobile computing and webOS 2.0, as well as the iPad, so we can certainly expect one or two tablets at the event.
HP made a wise decision about delaying the unveiling of the tablets. Whether it just so they could have their own show next month or they weren’t ready yet, the whole event was so saturated with tablets that if they showed off their tablets there, they might have been easily forgotten. February 9 isn’t too far away, but mark the date on your calendars if you’re keen to find out about the future of webOS 2.0 with HP.

HP Tablets Could Be Rebranded Huawei Devices
HP has indulged in the tablet market for quite a number of years already, although they have not exactly been the most successful of companies in this particular niche. This time around, it does look as though HP will be preparing a couple of new tablets – that do seem to obtain a strong influence from Huawei, so much so that they could very well be just rebranded devices.
Alleged HP Smartphone Render Leaked
How does a HP branded smartphone sound to you? I am quite sure that those of us out there who are more concerned about reliability might prefer a brand name that has fared far better than HP in the smartphone industry, such as the likes of Samsung, Apple, Nokia or LG. Well, if you love rooting for the underdog always, and want to give something different a try, HP might have just the thing for you.
An alleged HP smartphone was leaked out earlier this week, and it certainly seemed to jive with what HP Senior Director Yam Su Yin mentioned earlier this month, that HP intends to make a return to the smartphone business by introducing a unique model. The executive was even quoted, that “HP has to be in the game.” Do you think you will pick up a HP branded smartphone when the time comes?
HP Slatebook 10 X2 Rumors Appear
HP could be working on a spanking new high end Android-powered tablet which they have seen fit to call the HP SlateBook 10 X2. Of course, this is a particularly new piece of tech which was first picked up by the good people over at TabTech of Germany, courtesy of an AnTuTu benchmark. The HP SlateBook 10 X2 does seem to come with a 10” display of unknown resolution count, where it will be accompanied by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor that has been clocked at 1.8GHz, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in tow.
No idea on pricing or availability of the HP SlateBook 10 X2 though, but then again, it would not be the first of such devices to be announced by what was once a major computer manufacturing force in the world, since we have been acquainted with the Windows 8-powered HP Envy X2 before this. We do, however, hope to hear and see more about the HP SlateBook 10 X2 in due time.
