MyHPMini notes that HP has filed for a US trademark on the term “PalmPad.” The trademark would apply to computers, portable and handheld computers, PDAs, electronic notepads, and mobile digital electronic devices. Sounds like that would cover a tablet, wouldn’t it?
I kind of hope that this is just one of the options HP is considering, because PalmPad really just doesn’t sound right. But I guess the world got over the awkwardness of the Apple iPad quickly enough. Maybe PalmPad will grow on us too.
