HP promises webOS netbooks to go along with smartphones and slates

Todd Bradley did promise us there'd be more than just slates on HP's webOS menu and today we can add netbooks to the list of form factors for Palm's famed OS. This heretofore unknown slice of info comes from a carrier training website HP has set up to educate resellers on the strong points of its forthcoming products. The training video on the site speaks of the great synergies that can result from smartphones, slates and netbooks all running the same OS and "speaking" to one another, which echoes Bradley's "connected experience" mantra from a couple of days ago. Smartphones are said to be the beginning of a new family of webOS products, with their larger siblings set to come "soon enough." Is February 9th soon enough? We'd say so.
