All Things Digital heard HP is no longer planning to release an Android tablet in Q4 2010. Nothing is official yet, but perhaps the company decided it was best to focus primarily on the Windows 7 and webOS slates.
Hewlett Packard is working on a variety of tablet PCs, running a variety of operating systems. Among them, an Android device that was supposed to arrive at market in the fourth quarter of 2010. But no longer. Sources in position to know tell me that HP’s Android slate has been delayed and won’t ship before the end of the year as planned.
Why? That’s not entirely clear, but evidently the tablet has been tabled–at least for the time being.
Perhaps, HP (HPQ) has decided to focus its resources on the future webOS slate PC that its new Palm unit is developing. That device has a rumored fall launch date, and we’re already halfway through summer.
