PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We've been expecting HP to make an official announcement on its rumored webOS tablet since their acquisition of Palm, but have come up with nothing yet. Crave is reporting that we may at least finally have a name for the device after the United States Patent and Trademark Office granted HP a trademark last week. The name? The HP PalmPad. While not entirely original, it's a nice nod to the company which is making the device possible and is at least more descriptive than say the Streak or the (what the hell is a) JooJoo.

I liked "Slate" better

That's too bad. The term "slate" has been starting to catch on in the CS rags as a general term. I'm not as fond of the term "pad".
