According to BMO Capital Markets analyst Keith Bachman, Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE:HPQ) is expected to release a webOS based tablet by March. Bachman had met with about 30 tech companies across Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea recently and had found out the information from there.
This device will be the first tablet to run on the webOS operating system. Bachman pointed out that the webOS tablet is more of a “niche market” for HP. ?Everyone we met with [on the Asia trip] is planning to build tablets?It will be a very crowded market in 2011.?
