HP to plunk WebOS onto tablet

The alternative's alternative

Top three mobile application threats

HP will be producing a WebOS-based tablet, to be on the shelves in October along with applications, but there will not be a notebook version.

The news comes from HP Taiwan, as reported by Digitimes, which reveals that HP reckons notebooks need Windows but consumers will be more forgiving of a tablet-based device which will be ready later this year sporting the newly-acquired WebOS.

Actually, WebOS isn't even properly acquired yet. The deal to buy Palm won't be completed until the end of July, so we won't have more details about WebOS plans until then. An HP-branded tablet is the obvious home for the finger-driven OS, and any such offering will need to be on shops this year to be taken seriously. But it's nice to get confirmation that Android won't be the only choice for the anti-Apple crowd this Christmas. ®
