Since the acquisition of Palm, HP has been relatively quiet, but now some certification and a slew of screenshots suggests the ball is rolling.

HP has filed two new devices for certification under Palm Inc which may well be the last piece of convincing we need that HP will indeed be entering the smartphone market again with two brand new Palm devices.

The certification was not only for two new devices that would be CDMA and GSM enabled, but also for a device called an 'inductive battery charger' which sounds suspiciously like it's an updated version of the Touchstone charger used for the Palm Pre.

As if to make things even more transparent Engadget yesterday revealed a slew of screenshots showing the brand new WebOS 2.0 which will then no doubt be placed onto these new devices.

It's promising stuff, the Palm Pre was always a hugely desirable gadget even if it wasn't perfect in some areas, so the question will now be, can HP give it the finishing touches that could really make it a must-have smartphone?
