AT&T will be offering mobile customers with select plans the ability to make unlimited calls to any other mobile number. Starting February 10th, customers can sign up for the program online as long as they already have unlimited messaging and a “qualifying voice plan.” This is another way AT&T hopes to make up for Verizon’s iPhone sales. In other news, HP is finally getting into the mobile market. After buying Palm a year ago, HP is releasing a tablet and multiple smartphones that use Palm’s webOS operating system. The tablet, named the “Touchpad,” will weigh 1.5 pounds and have a 9.7-inch screen. And finally, a memo from Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop was leaked and revealed harsh disappointment in Nokia’s progress. The memo says that while Nokia has sources of innovation, it has not been brought to the market fast enough. Elop ultimately compared Nokia to a “burning oil platform.”
