Rumor mills tip of a possible WebOS tablet in March next year
Looks like HP might have finally decided to bring the WebOS tablet to reality. It was initially set to release the WebOS tablets – or as the grapevine suggested a few months ago, right after the US computer giant’s acquisition of Palm. But instead, it came out with the Windows 7 powered HP Slate 500 which did not really live up to the expectation. Now there are rumors floating around the net that the WebOS slate could be here as early as March next year. In fact Netbooknews reports of BMO Capital Markets analyst Keith Bachman spending some time with HP after which he came up with this speculation.
Although it is not official whether HP will push this one to the masses or only certain targeted audience, Mr. Bachman says it might turn out to be a niche tablet like the Slate 500. No words on the pricing and availability as of yet.
