HP Schedules Post-CES webOS Event

We knew that HP didn't buy Palm just to sit on it, and we also knew the company was planning new devices for 2011. Thus, it's no surprise that HP has an event coming, on Feb. 9, at which attendees are supposed to "Think Big. Think Small. Think Beyond."

It sounds, from the teaser, that HP will be unveiling a series of devices, from tablets to smartphones. It also means that the odds of HP unveiling anything webOS related at CES just dropped to nil.

We already expect the HP webOS tablet to be called the PalmPad. What will its new smartphones be dubbed, and is it already too late to catch up to Android and iOS?
