Apple iPad Killer: Palm webOS Tablet PC

With little over a week to go until the Apple iPad begins shipping, other companies can only watch in amazement at how popular the tablet PC is to become — and it is the Cupertino company that has the jump on everybody. Palm would be one of those companies as they are watching their company slowly go down the pan, experts believe their shares will be worth $0 in a year.

However, Palm could do something to help take the fight to Apple’s iPad and help bring its brand back from the pan — with a little help from webOS. PC World wonders what would happen if troubled Palm went back to its PDA roots and launched a tablet PC device of their own.

This is certainly something that has gotten the attention of many of us; just consider what it would be like to have a tablet device running on the remarkable webOS. The first thing that Palm would need to do is secure a deal not just with Sprint, but Verizon and AT&T as well.

The Palm tablet would be able to use the same multitasking capability as the Pre, something that the current iPhone and upcoming iPad cannot — although this could happen in the next version of iPhone OS.

PC World reckons that Palm should abandon the smartphone market — instead concentrating on a webOS tablet instead. If Palm do this right, then its Palm device could take the fight to Apple and could even win, thanks to a little support from more carriers — unlike the iPads one, AT&T.
