HP boss Todd Bradley has revealed the existence of a device called the PalmPad, due for release in early 2011.

Tablet PCs are, of course, all the rage right now. Which is why it is interesting that HP's Todd Bradley just confirmed that the company is planning to release a new 'PalmPad' computer early next year.

HP's webOS-based tablet will arrive at some as-yet-unspecified date in 2011, as was revealed in an analyst meeting earlier this month, when HP EVP Todd Bradley was the first to actually refer to the product by the name 'PalmPad'.

"We've already announced the expansion of our future product portfolio well beyond smartphones. We'll have a webOS-powered PalmPad that will be set for release early in 2011," said the HP boss.
