HP to cancel its Tablet (Slate)
So it looks like Apple will have more time to maintain its hegemony over the tablet market.
HP has just canceled its Slate project allegedly because they don’t believe the windows format is suitable for a tablet device.
HP is not satisfied with Windows 7 as a tablet operating system and has terminated the project
In any case, the Slate did look promising, especially considering its specs which have been mentioned earlier (in particular the forward facing camera for video chat).
