Ok, this is not exactly "Future" webOS gadgets but at one point it time it looks like they were. On January 2nd, Dieter Bohn wrote an article for the Verge titled, "The lost secrets of webOS"  that is a very interesting read. Dieter reveils gadgets on the planning board of HP before Leo killed the entire webOS project. In the article he reveils future gadgets code named Twain, Mako, Sapphire, & Embark.


The Twain is an interesting piece of hardware which looked to be ahead of its time a bit as we are seeing tablets like this now.





Dieter also reveils that the iPad 2 is what scared them all off. It was thinner and lighter than the Touchpad. had they rode it out, who knows what webOs could have been today.


Apple announced the iPad 2 on March 2nd, less than one month later and well before Palm's TouchPad was released. Though webOS on the TouchPad had some clever features and an elegant software design, the TouchPad itself was a hulking, plastic monster. It was for all intents and purposes a glossy black look-alike of the original iPad.


Apple's iPad 2 was as much of a revelation as the original iPad. It was radically thinner, lighter, and faster than what had come before and it immediately made the TouchPad — not to mention competing Android tablets — look stale by comparison. Apple released the iPad 2 to consumers just over a week after it was announced, while the TouchPad wasn't released until July.

It would be nice if they unleashed a webOS phone.

Yes it definately would. They may based on some of the review videos and interviews from CES that I've seen.
