Clayton Morris: HP to Unveil WebOS PalmPad Tablets at CES

Clayton Morris, Fox News: has obtained spec sheets for HP’s forthcoming PalmPad tablet this week from a trusted source. […] HP will introduce three models of the PalmPad at CES, with minor hardware differences distinguishing them. All three will run a new iteration of the WebOS operating system, version 2.5.1; they’re collectively a spin-off of the never-released HP Slate.

At last year’s CES, it was an HP Slate that Ballmer held up as Microsoft’s flagship new product of the year.

Update: Engadget is skeptical, both of the purported timing (CES, in just two weeks) and Morris’s claim that the device will have the same form factor as the previously announced slate.
