The new year is just around the corner, and major tech companies have promised us some innovative new products to arrive in coming months. Of course, we'll see the really new stuff at the Consumer Electronics Show in January (along with a lot of concepts and vaporware), but the 2011-ready products have been in the making for a long time. A Sony PSP phone, a white iPhone, Windows and Android tablets, and a 3D VAIO laptop are just a few of the things we're looking forward to.
So here are some of the most anticipated tech products of 2011--check them out.
Hewlett-Packard WebOS Tablet
Expected pricing: Unknown
Expected specs: One-panel touchscreen, WebOS 2, touch and stylus inputs
About: HP has confirmed that the device is coming, but little is known about HP's WebOS tablet. It may or may not be called the PalmPad and may or may not run WebOS 2.0. But using Palm's critically acclaimed smartphone OS in a tablet could be a big winner for HP, and may pose a credible challenge to the iPad. In addition to powering tablets, WebOS is expected to run new smartphones, netbooks and even wireless printers in 2011.
