We all know that the market will soon be flooded with tablets from a myriad of manufacturers... but one big name thought to be on that list perviously won't be: HP.
HP of course acquired Palm and all of it's assets around 6 months ago and it has begun to integrate into the HP Product Stream. Previously in development was an Android Tablet which worked with an HP Printer, the eStation. That, sadly, will be the only Android Tablet to come out of HP according to Jon Rubinstein. Jon is the former CEO of Palm and is now in charge of HP's gadget business -- so he should know a thing or two about the situation.
Instead, HP will concentrate on making webOS tablets. It's a gamble, but at the very least separates HP from all the other Tablet makers. Will the gamble pay off? I'm guessing no, but then again I'm biased.
What are your thoughts?
