It is recently rumored that HP, Hewlett-Packard, one of the world’s largest information technology companies and operates in nearly every country, is planning to release both Windows and WebOS-based tablets. It is the first time the company has given their plans to the public. The confirmation is unveiled by the personal systems chief Todd Bradley during the company’s quarterly results call. HP also announces that Windows Slate would be the first tablet to appear in the coming future. This would be followed by the launching of the WebOS tablet which will be named PalmPad soon in 2011. Let’s take an in-dept review about these two latest HP tablets powered on Windows and WebOS as follows:
The acquisitions of Palm make many people to believe that it is more suitable for the company to sell a tablet based on WebOS simply due to it would obviously be cheaper to use in-house code. However, the silence of the company on its plans and even some of its public statements also force some other companies in the media to stop researching on the Windows Slate altogether.
