Hewlett-Packard Kills Slate Project


Sources have recently announced that Hewlett-Packard has killed off Slate, the much anticipated Windows 7 tablet computer.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer first reveiled the new tablet in January at CES 2010. The product was expected to hit the market in the summer 2010. Now sources are saying that Hewlett-Packard is not happy with the Windows 7 operating system and has  recently killed the project.

Another thing to mention is that HP may be moving away from using Intel hardware for its tablets because of its high power consumption. This would also be reason for eliminating Windows 7 as an operating system.

It seems the only other option for HP’s operating system would be Google, but who knows?
