HP planning WebOS event for February 9

The company hasn't given any indication about what its announcement is about, other than saying it plans on making customers: "Think big. Think small. Think beyond."

Don't expect all the big announcements to end at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.

Hewlett-Packard will be hosting a special WebOS event on February 9 in San Francisco. The company didn't say what it will announce at the event, but the invitation's tagline says, "Think big. Think small. Think beyond."

It's possible that the company will unveil its rumored tablet, the PalmPad. That device is expected to run WebOS and could feature a few different form factors. However, rumors surfaced last month claiming HP would be unveiling the device at CES this week.

But given the timing of this announcement--just two days before the start of CES--those predictions might be off. Either way, CNET will keep you posted.
