HP: New WebOS Phones, Early 2011

Prepare for the rise of Zombie-Palm!

The Pre will not be a lone soldier standing in the darkness, doomed to fall alone and unmourned. If webOS smartphones fail for good, they'll be bringing Hewlett-Packard with them. Reuters reports that SVP Eric Cador of HP stated in an industry conference that, "You will see us early next year with new phones,".

That's about as solid as confirmation gets. WebOS is an excellent OS. It multitasks better and more easily than Android, and on the whole has one of the simplest and most satisfying UIs on the smartphone market. The Pre's failure had nothing to do with its qualities as a phone. Palm simply sucked at marketing and dropped the ball big-time on apps. Of course, Android and iOS may simply be too far ahead of the pack for webOS to establish anything more than a niche stronghold.

We've already seen rumors for the Palm Mansion, which will be a pure touchscreen device. In addition, a webOS PalmPad has been outed for 2011.
