Palm confirms it's working on new webOS devices

Rep promises "exciting year ahead"

After HP's acquisition of Palm earlier this year, many speculated that the former PDA titan would never again manufacture a piece of tech, but word is out that the company plans to keep on trucking with new webOS-toting gear.

At an AT&T developers seminar yesterday, a Palm representative revealed there will be more devices reaching our shelves within the next year, but remained tight-lipped as to what will follow the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus.

He also revealed that Palm is working on a new version of the webOS operating system that, the quality of which convinced HP to acquire the floundering phone company in the first place.

The Palm rep said: "I'm not allowed to talk about future roadmaps, especially because we're in the process of being acquired by HP, so I can't say. But yes we have a road map. We are working on future devices. And a new version of the OS. So I think, you're going to find the next year very exciting."

So will the new devices be more smartphones, or tablets? We're certainly expecting the HP Slate to feature webOS, now that the Windows 7 incarnation appears to be dead in the water, but will Palm also out its own tablet, or will we see the webOS smartphone the Palm Pre always should've been?
