    just saw the tweet from Adora, A Palm dev relations hot shot, she is linking to this article.


    HP: WebOS Slate on the Way | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

    but details are scarce....

    Palm CEO John Rubinstein will continue to head up his webOS team under new boss HP, and will be working on smartphones, “future slate PCs and netbooks,” according to a statement from HP

    The computer giant completed its acquisition of Palm yesterday, and announced that Palm will continue to develop both hardware and software, headed up by former Apple employee Rubinstein.

    This will include new phones (the Pre and Pixi lines are now also owned by HP), but most exciting is the confirmation that there will be webOS tablets. After all, apart from iOS, name another operating system that is as suited to a tablet as the webOS (sure, Android is close, but still a little too clunky).

    Better still, HP has the deep pockets to go up against Apple, and if Rubinstein and team are left to work on great machines their combined experience (many of them are also Apple alumni) should finally provide an iPad competitor. And even if you are a total, unashamed iPad ******, this should still excite you. Competition is good for us buyers. Take a look at the iPhone 4: Do you think it would be this good if Android and Palm weren’t chasing so close behind?

    Well this thread is from 18 days ago.

    But it is pretty much assumed they canceled the Windows 7 slate (though at one time they implied that this wasn't true), and the front page of Precentral has a few news updates on Hurricane or PalmPad.
