    Report: HP to unveil Windows 8 tablet at CES

    Report: HP to unveil Windows 8 tablet at CES | TabTimes

    HP may have unceremoniously killed its TouchPad tablet this summer, but according to one exec, the company is readying another slate. This time it's Windows 8.
    Cloud Pro is reporting that HPs managing director in Europe, the Middle East and Africa has said there will be more tablet devices coming from the company, with the first just a few months away.

    Yves De Talhouet revealed to Cloud Pro that a tablet running Windows 8 would be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.

    I wish them all the success of the pre-firesale Touchpad.

    Forrester already calling it dead on arrival, says consumers wanted it a year ago but interest has now waned.


    "In Q1 2011, Windows was by far the top choice of consumers while no touch-first Windows tablets existed, 46% of U.S. consumers yearned for one," Gownder wrote. "By Q3 2011, that picture had changed dramatically: Windows was no longer No. 1 in choice preference, and interest among consumers dropped to 25%. Microsoft has missed the peak of consumer desire for a product they haven't yet released."

    so...don't these types of products take a few years to develop?
    in other words, hp has been fully aware of microsoft's OS intentions, given they are key partners. I am so sure microsoft has some role, directly or indirectly,in helping hp abandon webos.

    Well if M$ have something to do with the death of WebOS, then surely hp people is just a puppet of M$. They don't have guts and dignity. And surely don't deserved to buy Palm at first place. I think in the future hp won't have any good reputation to buy any other company. They already proven killed too many great products from company that they buy and proved all of their promises are garbage.

    They would have been developing this regardless of what happened with WebOS, HP has always been a windows house so outside of lurid fantasies there is no smoking gun here.

    HP is a failed company in terms of innovation. They were big before Apple was born. They did some cool stuff back in the day. Now they are at crossroads trying to decide to go either IBM way or ORACLE way. If the Autonomy acquisition fails they will become a smaller irrelevant company.

    webOS while a failed OS in the market could still be their savior. Think about Steve Jobs work at Next.

    way to go HP going back to the good old ecosystem that work from wat I see! Facepalm. FeelsbadforHP! Especially when I have a really potential that just need a hard work that's all.

    I am sorry, but if MS looks out for itself and HP looks after itself, that is hardly black ops.

    It sucks that HP decided to lay an egg with webOS and then smash it, but I hardly fault MS for wanting to sell it's OS to as many people as possible.

    Now, to the point of this thread, I don't think HP has bad news in two weeks for webOS. Rushing is bad, thinking about the results of your decision is good. If there is an announcement in two weeks, then I think it will be good news.

    Two weeks is the perfect amount of time to make sure you set the table.

    As I've posted in here before, I think that MS had a nice sit down with HP and showed them them the windows XP cards. It's well known that XP is still the most widely installed OS in the world. When MS announces the end of XP support, where so you think those users will go? It's highly doubtful that they will abandon all their old heavily used and home grown apps to move to webOS or iOS. Nope, they will be given a way to ease onto windows 8 with an XP emulator for free.

    Again, it is/was XP that was a major part of the HP decision. Remember the words... "Enterprise!"

    This is not news - HP has been making Windows tablets all along, and will continue to do so. They will release a Windows 8 tablet, and a Windows 9 tablet (or whatever it ends up being called), just as they released Windows XP tablets, Windows Vista tablets, and Windows 7 tablets.
