The recent news of the upcoming Palm Pre 2 may just be the tip of the iceberg for new WebOS devices in the coming year. A report
from the Chinese industry publication CENS.com
is claiming that OEM giants Foxconn and Compal have landed contracts with HP to produce a slew of new WebOS devices. Reportedly, a total of 5-6 devices are in the works and all set to hit the market sometime in 2011. Additional details are also being reported by Telecompaper.com
Both articles are fairly light on details but do indicate that Foxconn will be the primary supplier of four or five devices, with Compal providing the remaining device. Interestingly enough, the CENS article specifically mentions "smartphones" and not tablet-style or netbook-style devices.
