HP Palm posts teaser video for Feb. 9 event

Adding more mystery to its February 9 event, HP Palm posts a teaser video with glimpses of a new device.

I've got to give HP Palm credit. Even after Engadget seemingly spoiled the surprise of February 9 event with a story and photos of two WebOS-based tablets , the company shot back with a message saying, "Think you saw the latest on Engadget? Think again." It certainly piqued our interest and now, we're even more enthralled thanks to a new teaser video.

The clip is brief and shows close-ups of a device from several different angles, but aside from a couple of buttons and switches, it's hard to determine what exactly you're looking at. Beneath the video on Palm's YouTube page, the description simply reads, "Think big. Think small. Think ahead. Think beyond."

Just last week, HP CEO Leo Apotheker dropped hints that we'd see WebOS smartphones and tablets at the event and said the products would ship just a few weeks after the announcement. Fortunately, we also don't have to wait too much longer, as the February 9 is just a few days away.

The press conference kicks off at 10 a.m. PT, and of course, CNET will be there to bring you all the latest news live, so be sure to tune in then.
