HP going back to tablet production with Windows 8
HP’s recent event in Shanghai saw not only the introduction of their latest notebook offerings (including their flagship line of Ultrabooks), but also the announcement of HP’s plans to re-enter the tablet device market. This time, though, instead of webOS, HP is going to work with Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 tablet OS instead.
HP CEO Meg Whitman knows that the growth is in the tablet segment this year, so it’s obviously a good move to try and wrestle with the current top names in the market for a chance to get a slice of the pie. No information has been revealed about HP’s upcoming Windows 8 tablet offerings yet, but it will likely take design cues from the discontinued HP Touchpad, with the added bonus of having access to various cloud-based features and services.
