HP delays Android tablet plans

We all know with the success of the iPad that hoards of other tablet computers are coming to market. HP is working on several tablets that run different operating systems including Windows 7 and with the purchase of Palm a webOS tablet is coming. One of the tablets was expected to run Android.

AllThingsD reports that HP has now delayed those Android tablet plans. The HP Android tablet had been expected to land on the market in Q4 2010. AllThingsD cites sources that tablet has been pushed from that expected Q4 launch date.

I don’t think many would be surprised to hear that the Android version will never come to market. With the purchase of Palm HP is keen to use its new WebOS in all the products it can. I won’t be surprised if HP opts to not compete with its own webOS tablet dreams by putting an Android tablet on the market. Windows 7 and WebOS aren’t seen as direct competitors.
