By on May 22nd, 2010

According to DigiTimes, HP will release a tablet device by the end of October. However, it has not been confirmed whether the tablet will running the WebOS or Windows 7. The Vice-President of HP Taiwan, Mr. Monty Wong said that HP would announce tablet and mobile based devices after HP completes the acquisition of Palm by the end of July.   He also said that the company would not launch Net books running on the WebOS. According to him, net books are similar to PCs in their usage and functionality.

Mr Wong also said that the HP Slate featuring the WebOS and/or Windows 7 would hit the retail market sometime in October. Along with the launch of the HP Slate, users will also be offered access to a huge catalogue of applications. DigiTimes does not mention whether Mr Wong was talking about a WebOS based tablet or a Windows 7 based tablet. It is rumoured that HP is working on a webOS based tablet device dubbed Hurricane. The device is expected to hit the retail market in the third quarter of this year.

It is very well a possibility that Mr Wong was talking about the HP Hurricane only. We need to wait until the end of July or for some HP Slate news to leak to get a confirmation on this one!
