HP Windows 7 Tablet mystery continues [Update: Development on “hold”]

Speculation around HP's tablet continues, with the company still yet to step up and confirm whether or not the project has been canned.  After a report last week suggested that the Windows 7 slate had been axed shortly after HP's acquisition of Palm, followed by a contrary report supposedly from a source within HP, the Mercury News is quoting analyst Ezra Gottheil who still expects the tablet to see a commercial launch.

HP Windows 7 Tablet Gets Canceled, We Hope for webOS Tablet Instead

HP Windows 7 Tablet Gets Canceled, We Hope for webOS Tablet Instead

Apparently tonight is not a good night for tablet devices. Though, if you were to ask a few people, it may still continue to be a very good couple of days for Hewlett-Packard. After the announcement that HP had bought Palm, suggestions of an HP Slate with webOS started coming left and right. It doesn't help when HP is telling the world that tablets are definitely on the agenda. And now, word is that HP has killed the Windows 7 tablet project, better known as the HP Slate (which debuted at CES this year). Coincidence?

Slate 2 resurrects HP’s tablet dreams with Windows 7, on sale this month

Slate 2 resurrects HP’s tablet dreams with Windows 7, on sale this month

HP's original Slate 500 was a highly anticipated tablet that failed to make a splash, but found itself a loyal group of followers. Now months after the TouchPad's sadly curtailed run, HP is returning to its Windows stomping grounds with the Slate 2, a refreshed model with some tweaks more appropriate for touch and pen-based input. The new Slate will improve on the first with six hours of quoted battery life - a 300% increase.

HP Spectre x360 hands-on: When PC makers get OCD

HP Spectre x360 hands-on: When PC makers get OCD

The HP Spectre x360 is, if you're brave enough to play Devil’s Advocate, the Windows notebook you create when you channel Apple levels of obsessive-compulsion. Latest in HP’s high-end ultraportable family, the new Spectre isn’t just a capable aluminum laptop but a turning point in involvement between an OEM and Microsoft: a never-before-seen investment in time, energy, and Very Clever People. In fact, you could well argue that the Spectre x360 is the Surface Laptop that Microsoft refuses to make. I caught up with both companies to get my hands on their collaborative aluminum slab, and find out what makes it really special.

Small Windows 10 tablets won’t get desktop mode

Small Windows 10 tablets won’t get desktop mode

Perhaps Microsoft was too quick to sing the Windows 10 unification song, and perhaps we were to quick to buy the spiel. After practically saying that Windows 10 is for everyone, Redmond is now revealing the fine print, slowly and in bits and pieces. After vaguely alluding to the Windows RT's demise, Microsoft is more clearly and more explicitly revealing one subtle yet important caveat to the Windows 10 promise. Any Window 10 device smaller than 8 inches, whether phone or tablet, will not be getting the desktop mode.

What to expect from tomorrow’s Windows 10 event

What to expect from tomorrow’s Windows 10 event

In a few short months, we’ve seen Microsoft go in a new direction with Windows. Possibly in an attempt to distance themselves from the aspirational (but ultimately confusing and misguided) Windows 8, we’re now getting Windows 10. Though Microsoft probably isn’t quite ready to bring Windows 10 to the consumer space, tomorrow will likely give us a better idea of what they’ve been working on since last time we heard from them. We won’t expect anything huge, but there’s still reason to be excited.

HP tricks out tablet brood with WiGig and keyboard docks, more

HP's tablet ambitions don't end with the Pro Slate 8 and 12 and their ultrasonic stylus, with a clutch of new Android and Windows 8 slates unveiled with features like ruggedized casings, 2-in-1 docks, and more. Most curious of the bunch is likely the HP Elite x2 1011 G1, an 11.6-inch Windows 8.1 tablet with baked-in LTE, an optional Wacom stylus, and a WiGig docking station; it runs one of Intel's new Core M processors, and has an 11.6-inch touchscreen running at up to 1920 x 1080 resolution.

HP Pro Tablet 408 rocks 8-inch screen and Windows OS

HP already has a couple tablets that it offers to tablet users that run the Windows operating system. It has the HP Stream 7 and Stream 8 for instance. Those are both rather inexpensive tablets with the Stream 7 selling for around $100 and the Stream 8 for around $150. Those tablets are both mostly aimed at normal consumers rather than professional users.
