HP To Release WebOS Tablet in Q1 2011

HP today confirmed that it will be launching a webOS tablet soon. Todd Bradley, Executive VP, HP’s Personal Systems Group, told employees that a webOS tablet would arrive in early 2011, but he officially declared it today in an investor call, in response to a question on whether tablets were hurting HP’s netbook sales.

HP acquired Palm earlier this year for $1.2 billion, primarily for webOS which it plans to use in its tablets, smartphones and netbooks.

They also plan to release a Microsoft Windows 7 tablet in the near future. While the webOS tablet will be aimed at consumers, the Windows 7 tablet will be aimed at enterprise users.

No other details are out yet, but we can expect them soon.
