HP may be working on yet another tablet

A future HP tablet equipped with Windows 8 is a possibility

HP may be down but not out, as the American multinational IT corporation  recently hinted at a possible upcoming tablet.

According to, VP of HP’s PSG commercial channel Andrew Bodson claimed that HP is still looking into reentering the tablet market, maybe even releasing a Windows 8 tablet when appropriate.

We will still have tablet solutions,” said Bodson. “We are evaluating Windows 8, but it is a few months away.” Separate sources from say that VP of HP Ann Livermore recently made a similar comment on HP’s continuing interest in the tablet market.

The move is definitely a possibility as Windows 8 will be a much more stable platform compared to webOS in terms of support and potential market share. Still, the idea of an HP tablet may leave a sour taste in consumers due to the explicit and almost sudden failure of the TouchPad. After the hefty $1.2 billion investment in Palm Inc. and more, HP may have left itself a scar in the tablet world.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
