Comments on: An Ill Fate For HP's Windows 7 Slate?
The reason? According to TC, Win 7's performance as a tablet OS just isn't up to snuff - whether this is due to speed issues, battery life problems or a combination of both isn't delved into, although it's mentioned that HP may also be abandoning Intel-based internals for its Slate lineup entirely. Given that this news comes right on the tail of the Palm acquisition - not to mention the hints dropped by executives - the idea that HP will forge ahead exclusively with an in-house, mobile-optimized webOS tablet is definitely within the realm of possibility. The company remains tight-lipped, giving Engadget the standard line: "We don't comment on rumours or speculation."
