    What a bunch of spineless fools.

    '..Todd Bradley, executive vice president of the Personal Systems Group, acknowledges that HP still has some things to figure out when it comes to tablets, but he also suggests that the needs of business customers are continually evolving, and that no one has it quite figured out just yet..'

    Classic!!

    Duh!

    HP has a thing for shiny. Windows 8 is shiny and new and likely to sell on its own. HP had to actually work to make webOS purchasable. They didn't want to.

    To paraphrase Thomas Edison - "Opportunity is often missed because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work"

    Why are you guys so surprise about HP is going to make windows 8 tablet? HP always made windows product. They are number 1 PC maker in the world. Guess which OS they used on their PC?

    Well, lets start with HP spending over a billion on WebOS. Why not make one tablet and let the customer decide what OS they want.

    In a world of droid, Pre does it better.

    Shouldn't we treat this world like the Garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

    Customer already decided not to buy webOS device. They failed on Veer and TouchPad. Windows product, they know it will sell.

    This is not an old habits! HP's main product is MS windows PC! This is their main product. So eventually they will make windows 8 tablet. What is wrong with that? Do you really think HP can survive without selling any MS windows product? If they decide to drop MS, I'll bet their stock will drop more than 50% this time around.

    Didn't that already happen though when nobody bought the Touchpad when it was first launched? I don't think HP can rely on the firesale people to support future webOS devices. They didn't buy it for webOS, they bought it because it was dirt cheap. Odds are their next tablet purchase will be because it is dirt cheap, not because they are so enthralled with the OS.
    Pros: The pills were there.
    Cons: So was the tank.

    When HP announced they will not produce MS ultramobile devices right after Pam buyout, I thought they are insane.

    They did too. They're still selling the Slate 500 product. Marketing it too. Only not to the consumer market.

    I actually think your comment has a grain of truth.
    But now that webos has a footprint in the market, maybe it will be easier for HP to get behind both systems esp as gartner says that HP sold 2 mil tablets ahead of android in its first year debuting and as the tablet market is still early stage.

    tbh id laugh if some1 foudn a way to wipe winblows8 off teh device and overlay webOS onto it, sounds only a fair way to treat HP.

    its supposedly another compatible arm system aint it, so yeah stroll on new webOS hardware.

    A P P S!!! weve seen already this is the only thing that carries any weight, get apps first and people will buy anything regardless of OS, then they either love or hate their OS later.

    WebOS has been in the marketplace since the first Pre. The Touchpad stiffed.
