Now HP has slapped the fabled webOS tablet with a name, PalmPad, the rumours can begin in earnest. First up is talk that the new Palm-backed tablet will pack in stylus support, aimed at giving it a business edge over the iPad.
Word from an insider suggests that the PalmPad will support a wacom pen, which would make note taking and searching much more straightforward than on Apple’s slab of touchscreen magic.
Such a move would set the PalmPad apart from the iPad at a time when it’s surging ahead of the virtually non-existent competition. It would also pit it directly against the supposedly workaholic theme behind the BlackBerry Tablet.
