Hewlett Packard Cancels Windows 7 Tablet Project

Posted May 4, 2010

Hewlett Packard has decided to cancel the HP Slate project. The Slate was supposed to be a tablet PC with Windows 7 built in. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer presented the device at the CES 2010 event this past January in Las Vegas. While it is uncertain why they were canceling the project, it is rumored to be because HP was unsatisfied with the project. Perhaps HP’s acquisition of Palm influenced the decision to cancel the project as well. [TechCrunch]
