Slideshow: HP Tablet Announced

We are here at beautiful Fort Mason in San Francisco on a spectacular day. The Bay is sparkling, Alcatraz beckons (for some of us), and somewhere inside the theater HP is making all the final preparations. The line to get in is already pretty long, and growing. We are about to see the launch of a new lineup of HP mobile products based on the company's WebOS platform.

HP chose Fort Mason, nestled in the Marina district in San Francisco, along the Bay, for the unveiling of a new line-up of mobile products that included two new phones (the tiny Veer and the Palm 3, which the company deems its workhorse phone) and a tablet (the TouchPad).
