We’re finally starting to see the results of the HP – Palm merger, as the two companies are working on a tablet. This info was recently confirmed by the fact that HP filed for the “Palmpad” trademark. We’re talking about a USPTO Trademark application filed on July 9th by HP, one that lists “computers, computer hardware, software, peripherals, portable computers, PDAs” and more.

There’s also a rumoured launch date, as the upcoming Palmpad slate is supposed to debut in Q3. It all seems a bit too early, but Palm might have already been working on a device that HP took over and perfected. What about the naming? Do you like it?

What are the odds of Palmpad getting Windows 7?
