Second time is (hopefully) a charm with HP putting Windows 8 on new tablet line


HP Slate 8HP has not had much luck in their early attempts at penetrating the tablet market after launching and subsequently canning their WebOS TouchPad in less than 2 months. They’re hoping that luck will change and they are officially making Windows 8 their operating system of choice after rumors surrounding the partnership were leaked last month.

It will be comparable to the iPad but with minor improvements such as a thinner body and longer battery life to try to succeed where Android tablets have failed: cracking the full-size tablet market that Apple completely dominates. Rumors of a smaller iPad are circulating, making it possible that the domination will spread.

Expect Windows 8 driven tablets, including the HP Slate 8, to be hitting the market before the holidays.
