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

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: new Windows 10 devices will land on Day One

In about two weeks, the world will finally see what Windows 10 is all about. Or at least some will. Microsoft detailed the staged rollout of Windows 10 to various partners and consumers, indicating that most end users won't see the new OS until a much later date. That may be true for existing Windows 7 or 8.1 users, the legit ones at least, but new owners might see a different story. HP is now coming out to say that some people will be able to get their hands on a shiny new Windows 10 laptop on July 29 itself.

Did Nadella just put the nail in Windows Phone’s coffin?

Did Nadella just put the nail in Windows Phone’s coffin?

Just a while ago we looked into the reasons why it wouldn't be in Microsoft's best interests to suddenly switch to Android as its mobile platform. And then head honcho Satya Nadella dropped the huge bombshell. Microsoft has, for all intents and purposes, stricken off Nokia from its books. This has lead many to conclude Microsoft's surrender in the smartphone market. And they might very well be right. Or not. Like many things in life, things aren't as clear cut as we would like, and Microsoft's struggle with mobile is far from over.

Quo vadis Tablet? The future of mobile slabs

Quo vadis Tablet? The future of mobile slabs

The once well-defined boundaries between computing devices, delineated by form factors, are blurring. PCs are no longer towering boxes but can also be found in something as small as an HDMI dongle. Laptops are no longer just rigid folding portable computers. There are smartphones that can barely fit in your hand, much less your pockets. And tablets, well, they've become less defined these days. They might also be less needed, threatened by phablets on one end and hybrid laptops on the other. Is there a future for tablets? Perhaps, but not without some major changes, particularly in how consumers see them.

HP’s $299 Pavilion x2 tablet hybrid blew me away

Making a sleek tablet with a detachable keyboard isn’t tough, but making one with both style and an affordable price tag takes another level of commitment. HP believes it has just the thing, however, in the shape of the new HP Pavilion x2. A 10-inch Windows tablet with a magnetically-clinging keyboard, USB-C, and over 10hrs of battery life, it’s hard not to see Microsoft’s Surface 3 right in HP’s sights. Surprisingly, though, the Pavilion x2 will start at under $300.
