There is such a term vaporware . This is a product widely advertised long before its actual sale. And, to my personal regret, HP Slate has already climbed to the top of the list of the most prominent representatives of vaporware.
But there was some clarity in his difficult fate after Todd Bradley, head of the HP personal devices business, voiced three important facts:
At the same time, a line of webOS-based tablets will be released for the mass customer.
At the same time, it is known that in the bins Palm and, therefore, HP has several lines of smartphones based on WebOS. And here, the operating system from Microsoft did not have a place in the plans of HP - there will be no HP smartphones based on Windows 7 Phone .
Doubt that smartphones and tablets on WebOS should immediately fall into the category of "must take!" I do not. But for some reason I am waiting more for a tablet on Windows 7. To close this topic once and for all. What do you think?
