H.P. Working on âHalf-Pintâ Android Tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| Hewlett Packard is working on numerous tablet 
| devices that will come in a variety of sizes, 
| shapes and operating systems, including Windows 
| 7, Googleâs Android, and possibly the open-
| source operating system Linux.
| The company has so many different tablet-related 
| projects in the works that a variety of coming 
| publishing partners were surprised to see a 
| Windows 7 version of the Hewlett-Packard slate 
| announced at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show.


Nexus Two - The Next Generation

,----[ Quote ]
| Weâve had the battle of the apps and now itâs 
| the battle of the handset. But after all the 
| hype, it has not been the greatest start for 
| Google and the Nexus One phone - maybe we should 
| be looking forward to the Nexus Two and all that 
| might bring with it?

Et tu, HP!

| This is a sign that OEMs are looking at backup
| plans for what to do when the monopoly
| crumbles. If the market for that other OS
| dries up, they have GNU/Linux to lean on. They
| may have to advertise it a bit, but they can.
| If the market for x86 dries up in preference
| to ARM for power/price, HP and others need an
| alternative. If they will not supply ARM and
| GNU/Linux, others will. The market is
| beginning to finish the process of curing the
| anti-competitive acts of the monopoly. It is
| about time.


The Other HP Slate Runs On Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Last night, during his keynote address at
| the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas,
| Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer showed off a
| prototype for a new HP Slate computer
| running on Windows 7. It was supposed to be
| an Apple-stealing moment and it was
| Microsoftâs moment, which is probably why
| Hewlett-Packard has not yet publicly
| mentioned that it is working on another
| tablet/slate computer that is running on
| Android. You know, Googleâs mobile
| operating system.
| HP did announce an Android-powered netbook
| yesterday, but that has a keyboard. A
| source who has seen a prototype of HPâs
| Android Slate says it looks just like the
| Windows-powered one Ballmer held last night
| (see image below), maybe a little smaller.
| âIt is almost identical in every respect to
| the one he showed off except for the OS,â
| says my source.
