Palm announces tablet, hoping to give iPad some competition
FOX News reported this morning that Palm is launching a competitor to the iPad.
Palm and parent company Hewlett-Packard will introduce three models of the tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show next month, the report said. All will run the WebOS operating system. The FOX report said that the new tablet's specs are "nearly identical" to the iPad and will run on Sprint's 4G network.
A fourth version of the tablet, geared toward university students, is to come, and HP hopes that it can hit classrooms as early as next fall.
Palm says early adopters can get their hands on the gadget in March.
