All of the puzzle pieces are starting to fall into place for a major competitor to Apple and their iPad. It may no longer have the HP Slate name we’ve been hearing over and over, however, it appears that HP has filed for a trademark on the name Palmpad. This is line with all the previous news and rumors that HP is largely abandoning the Google Android-powered and Windows 7 versions of its tablet. Instead, they’re focusing energies on their newly acquired webOS platform. That is, after all, why HP chose to buy Palm in the first place isn’t it?
