Since HP acquired Palm there have been plenty of rumors floating about which suggest that a webOS tablet could be on the way, well we are now hearing more rumors which apparently confirm the codename for the device along with a release period.

According to sources the HP tablet will run webOS and should arrive during Q1 2011, apparently HP have codenamed the project “Hurricane”, however it is doubtful that this will be the devices name when it launches.

This article heavily depends on just how reliable Engadget’s sources really are, I must say that a webOS based tablet sounds a lot more appealing than a Windows 7-based tablet, especially when taking into account battery life and mobile apps.

So what do you make of this news? Do you think a webOS tablet can compete with the iPad?
