Hewlett-Packard CEO Leo Apotheker spoke with the BBC during the World Economic Forum in Davos, shedding new light on the company’s plans for webOS over the next two months. Moving forward, the HP boss claims the gap between product announcements and launches will shrink substantially. In fact, we should expect webOS devices to launch “within weeks” of next month’s event on February 9th. Of note, Apotheker says that upcoming devices will be HP-branded so we might soon have to say goodbye to the Palm name when it comes to webOS devices. Looking beyond February, HP will have another major announcement coming on March 14th, when the company will detail its “vision of what HP is capable of in the future.” We have to say, we’re now more excited than ever to see what might come when Palm’s silky smooth webOS platform is finally slipped into the top-notch hardware it deserves.
