HP seeks PalmPad trademark

HP seeks PalmPad trademark

Hewlett-Packard Co. is seeking to trademark the name “PalmPad” for computer hardware and mobile devices, providing a solid indication that a tablet computer borne of HP’s purchase of Palm and its WebOS operating system is under development.

HP could be preparing a tablet designed primarily to compete with Apple Inc.’s iPad, and could possibly put it on sale by year’s end, industry analysts and bloggers said. HP didn’t comment. However, a recent trademark application that HP submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office speaks for itself, according to industry experts. Trademark applications are usually tantamount to receiving a trademark, unless the same trademark is found to be in use by another party, noted Jack Gold, principal analyst at J.Gold Associates LLC.

Gold said HP is expected to build a WebOS tablet, using the operating system that’s in the Palm Pre and Pixi smartphones, and the trademark filing gives more credence to that idea. “It’s not far-fetched to think that a variant of WebOS is ready for a tablet,” he said.
