HP/Palm is holding an event on February 9th for a new exciting webOS announcement. To get people talking past all the CES news HP exec Jon Zilber took the time to write a poem titled “Twas the week after Christmas”. Nothing really revealing except that “More smartphones are coming” and that “you’ve heard that a tablet is nigh, And lots more phones, and ePrint, and cool apps”.
‘Twas the week after Christmas, when all over Palm
All the creatures were stirring, no mouses were calm;
More smartphones are coming in two-o-one-one,
To bring more mobility to everyone;
Designers are nestled all snug in their cubes,
With visions of webOS (a series of tubes);
We’ve read all your tweetering (no need for ALL CAPS),
We all know that this ain’t a time for no naps.
Yes, out on the blogs there has been so much chatter,
You’d think it was truly a death-or-life matter
The webOS update brings goodies like Flash,
And Just Type and stacking (and won’t cost you cash).
More treats that the new year will bring unto you?
(We have heard that you’re feeling they’re long overdue.)
And what to your wondering eyes will appear?
Not a miniature hint now, but never you fear,
We’ll have news to share with you, soon as we can,
I know what you’re thinking: “Just tell us your plan!”
I’m sure that you’ve heard that a tablet is nigh,
And lots more phones, and ePrint, and cool apps, oh my,
“First, Palm Pre! then, Pixi! and, Pre Plus (and Pre 2)!
Next, Whatzis? or Whosit! or, Thingabob? and Yoohoo!”
(Those aren’t the real names! they’re not even the codes!
You’ll have to wait! have to wait! the future bodes!)
But for now I’ll exclaim that unless something leaks,
“Happy newness to all…in the forthcoming weeks.”
