HP to unveil WebOS tablets next month

PCs and TVs too, hints exec

Mobile application security vulnerability report

HP has been sending out invites to an event its hosting on 9 February, and it's widely expected to focus on WebOS handsets and tablets.

Don't take our word for it. HP senior Personal Systems staffer Todd Bradley told US TV channel CNBC last night that he'll talk about differentiating HP's offerings from Apple's iPad "on the ninth", Pre Central reports.

“So we’ve announced February ninth we have a broad public set of announcements, broadly about the future of WebOS and the breadth of products that it’ll enable," said Bradley.

Bradley, by the way, used to run Palm. Now he's at HP, and HP last year acquired Palm, he's essentially overseeing his old operation again.

And he's nudging it not simply from smartphones to tablets but beyond, it seems:

“As we think about how [WebOS] enables everything from smartphones to tablets to PCs to potentially other large screen devices, we see an enormous opportunity," he told CNBC. That's our emphasis, by the way.

WebOS on your telly, anyone? ®
