HP were due to launch their first tablet which would run Windows 7, and the tablet was going to be called the HP Slate, that was until HP decided to buy Palm and then announce that the HP Slate would be shelved.
HP then told us that they would be investing heavily in Palm’s webOS operating system that runs on the Palm Pre and Palm Pixi smartphones, and that they would also start producing tablets based on webOS.
It seems details have been revealed of the first webOS based tablet from HP, and it will be called the HP Hurricane. According to the Examiner who got the information from a HP Insider, HP’s first webOS tablet will launch in Q3 of 2010.
Unfortunately there are no details on what sort of hardware we will see inside the HP Hurricane Tablet, although we expect it to be very similar to the original HP Slate, which HP have already invested in developing.
As soon as we get some more details on the HP Hurricane Tablet we will let you guys know.
