When HP rescued Palm and purchased them for $1.2 billion they got the rights for their new webOS platform. HP announced today that they will be releasing new smartphones in early 2011 that will be powered by webOS. Senior Vice President Eric Cador was at a conference in Barcelona and stated “You will see us coming early next year with new phones”. No other details were given on if these new phones will be branded HP or Palm – hopefully not the iPAQ series and Palm lives on. Maybe Cador is talking about those mysterious HP devices that CTO Phil McKinney was playing with a few weeks ago.

    And nobody really cares about Palm right now, because releasing new phone every year isn’t going to work for them as good as it does with Apple.
