Palm to show off new Pad at CES

To be called the PalmPad product family
Palm will being getting deep into the tablet game with a line of new products that are part of their new PalmPad family. The new offerings will be shown at CES by Palm. The designs are said to be derived from hardware designed by HP for a number of tablet products that the company never launched.

The initial offering will be three models that will all be using the Palm WebOS version 2.5.1. A fourth model will also be available, but it will not be shown as CES as it is a custom high-volume production model targeted for schools and universities.

The retail consumer version of the PalmPads will offer Sprint WiMax 4G connectivity in addition to WiFi support, as well as dual cameras with LED flash, USB 3.0 support and mini HDMI support. Size and features vary by device, but the screen size is expected to be between 8.9 to 9.7 inches, depending on the model.

The PalmPad will arrive in March 2011 and HP will also be offering a number of both Microsoft and WebOS designs in early 2011. We are told that while the PalmPad does incorporate some ideas from the never-launched Folo device, the PalmPad is a new unique offering. We are told that Sprint will be one of the first partners to carry the device when it is released in March, which makes sense since the PalmPads offer WiMax support.
