[Video] HP’s Todd Bradley all but confirms webOS tablet only one piece of ecosystem

HP’s Tom Bradley talks with CNBC about what HP plans for their February 9th event. In his conversation, he states that “webOS tablet is only one piece of the ecosystem – one piece of that connected experience that we are going to create” and “a broad set of public announcements – and a breadth of products we are going to unveil.” You heard it directly from the horses mouth. We expect Palm to come out swinging with a multitude of products, including tablets, phones and possibly PC’s. I know that a few of here at fonefrenzy can’t wait to see what HP/Palm has in store on February 9th.

This is the future, O2 getting rid of unlimited data plans

Looks like tiered data plans are coming sooner than we thought. O2 has announced that it will be getting rid of its data plans and introducing new options that will be beginning on June 24th, O2 will also be carrying the new iPhone 4 on that same day.  Users can pay £25 for 500MB, £40 for 750MB, and £60 for 1GB of data per month. Users who go over those totals will have to purchase additional data of £5 for 500MB or £10 for 1GB. AT&T introduced their plans earlier this week to coincide with the iPhone 4 announcement, I suppose the iPhone 4 will be using a lot of data for all of its new features. According to O2, only 3% of its customers will be affected by this change. Existing customers with unlimited data will be honored, and a promotion for unlimited data will be available for new customers until October.

Android Gingerbread due in Q4 of 2010

According to the WebM project, not only can we expect Android 2.2 very soon, but Google is well on the way working to build out Android 3.0 or known as Gingerbread. In a statement on the website, WebM says:

When will other Google products support WebM and VP8? “WebM support in Android is expected in the Gingerbread release (currently planned for Q4, 2010). We expect many other Google products to adopt WebM and VP8 as they prioritize it with their other product requirements. Keep an eye on the WebM blog for announcements”

Feature list should be forthcoming in the very near future. In the meantime, we just want Froyo to come as quickly as possible (today).
