    Why not? They have manufacturing contracts, blueprints of a design for a new tablet. It's called the TouchPad Go.

    Forget tablets... I need a Smartphone...

    New TouchPads are not coming. Just ask all the "WebOS is dead" crowd. Thank you Meg.

    I wonder if they'll keep producing the Touchpad to do the deal with the computers? If they waited until late 2012 or 2013 then they're not too much into WebOS on a tablet again but just waiting to see how Windows 8 does in the tablet sector or see if the tablet sector even stays as viable as it is now. Remember that notebooks were the fad for awhile and now disappearing.

    And we know they have said they are developing tablets, just not WebOS. I'm wondering if they're just going to make a go with Windows first and then see what they do. It wouldn't be hard for them to just add WebOS on one of the Windows tablets slated for next year.

    waiting another year or more is just going to make the train real late to the party, giving competitors an even bigger advantage. maybe with time it will work, but i think not.....

    this whole debacle is a tangled web of incompetence, going way back in time.....

    there is no 'good' solution....HP has bled a lot of cash recently, bottom line has to be attended to, obviously, that factored hugely on the decision....

    still gonna enjoy mine, i was going to try and get another for a Xmas present for my cousin at Ebay, gonna be a madhouse, just don't know now if it is worth it....

    laterzzzzzz...

    problem HP doesnt see is that unless they sell every new tablet at a cheap price (199 or so) nobody will buy it, because Webos is still thought of as a 2nd rate product. Why because their intial attempt at a tablet was cheaply built, and a laggy OS. As well as report still show unless you Apple, theres no money in the tablet business right now. Even android (as you can see HPs touchpad sold more then them) has praticly 0 marketshare. Smartphones is how you move Webos, it has always been, and what has always been a issue is 2 things HARDWARE, AND OPTIMIZED OS. The OS is being optimized now they have the funding, Webos just needs the freakin hardware. So either do the right thing with the materials you have (we know you have them look at your HP pavillion lines) or present Webos to other OEMs without catches and allow them to make the devices consumers are looking for...larger screens made with glass and metal not goonie gadgets with plastic trap doors smh.

    "An HP spokesman, asked to conform the report, said that a WebOS tablet would be made only if the market was "viable"."

    Will be interesting to see if, in 2013, and webOS tablet is viable after Windows 8, iOS, and Android have had 2-3 year head start.

    So basically, if someone else can make a success of WebOS and make decent margins, they are happy to jump on the life-raft, if they can't, they will cite the market and not bother. It's genius and get them off the hook completely.

    its not genius, its cautious because they are scared and have no vision.
    Jobs had vision and changed the market.
    But at least with open source someone else has possibility.

    They're a business, run by a board with shareholders to keep happy, vision doesn't come into it.

    Yes it does. Lack of vision burned them for about 3 billion and launched webOS into open source purgatory.

    Yes, because every tablet HP makes in the future will have WebOs only... I'm sure HP has absolutely no plans to produce tablets with Windows 8 as their OS after microsoft launches it..(rollseyes)

    Now from the start, they had talked about getting webOS on Windows... maybe that's how they will first combine the two? Heck, they might already be working on a way to do it, and are just waiting for Windows 8 to come out next year before putting it out in 2013...

    I don't think I could handle the sadness anymore. I won't use webOS ever again.

    Though I said that I wouldn't buy a Pre3.

    By the time 2013 even shows up, Whitman will likely be gone, or will have moved HP into a whole 'nother direction

    How about a dual booting W8 and webOS tablet. Maybe that CM could make its way as well as Ubuntu.
    But pretty much wishful thinking

    edit: makes me think... couldn't you run the emulator on the Slate??
