"source tells us that HP is not satisfied with Windows 7 as a tablet operating system and has terminated the project"
"HP may also be abandoning Intel-based hardware for its slate lineup simply because it’s too power hungry."
In many ways I understand this. Windows 7 with extra UI on top on 1.6Ghz Atom with GM500 isn't the best way to do a tablet..
As they bought Palm, they could now make pretty cool tablet with WebOS..
I think there is still change for Windows 7 tablets too. There are many things really nice on W7 but these tablets needs to be bit more powerfull.
On my Hanvon Touchpad video I demonstrated how nice W7 can be when you have enough power.. same with Viliv S10 with 2.0Ghz Atom.. ( I have a video coming demonstrating a bit more W7 tablets stuff soon )
How about you? Wanna only see Android/vegeOS/WebOS etc ARM tablets or would you rather get Windows 7?
For me, if tablet is small I would go with ARM/mobile OS but on 10 inches and up I'd rather use full desktop OS..
UPDATE: Or maybe it's not terminated.. While Liliputing got "no comments" from HP, Netbooknews got: "very, very improbable if not even an impossible piece of news!"
Let's wait and see..
