Mobile is the New Desktop: The HP/Palm Q&A

,----[ Quote ]
| Q: But why now?
| A: Because for all of the penetration of the 
| iPhone and Android class devices, this 
| market is just getting started. Look at any 
| hardware vendorâs roadmap and youâre likely 
| to see not only a smartphone play, but all 
| manner of MID/tablet/smartbook devices as 
| well â largely ARM driven. Because thatâs a 
| compelling market. The hardware, of course, 
| is only one part of the equation. And, 
| arguably, not the hardest part.


Hewlett-Packard To Kill Windows 7 Tablet Project

,----[ Quote ]
| Hewlett-Packard has killed off its much 
| ballyhooed Windows 7 tablet computer, says a 
| source whoâs been briefed on the matter.
| The device was first unveiled by Microsoft 
| CEO Steve Ballmer at CES 2010 in January and 
| was supposed to hit the market in mid 2010. 
| But our source tells us that HP is not 
| satisfied with Windows 7 as a tablet 
| operating system and has terminated the 
| project (something CrunchGear mentioned 
| months ago).


HP tips its ARM netbook hand

,----[ Quote ]
| HP's ARM-powered Android netbook has 
| surfaced on the company's U.S. website, 
| suggesting it may be headed for a North 
| American release. Branded as the "Compaq 
| AirLife 100," the netbook includes a 1GHz 
| Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM 
| and 16MB of flash storage, a 10.1-inch 
| display, and GPS capabilities, the company 
| says.
| Information on HP's Compaq AirLife 100 -- 
| like Lenovo's Skylight, one of the only 1GHz 
| ARM-based netbooks to have been announced by 
| a major vendor -- was leaked in February by 
| Engadget Espanol and The Inquirer. The 
| former website claimed the device is headed 
| for the U.K. on the O2 Network (Telefonica 
| Europe), and the latter said it's headed for 
| Telefonia in Spain. 


Is HP Slate Really Dead? Or Palm Acquisition Another Step Towards It?

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest buzz doing rounds on the popular 
| gadget blogs is that, both Microsoftâs 
| surreal âCourierâ as well as HP âSlateâ are 
| dead. While Microsoft has just provided a 
| hint towards what they call as âthey may not 
| be interestedâ for the development of 
| âCourierâ right now. But shockingly, most of 
| the blogosphere is fueling stories about HP 
| Slate being dead already. That too without 
| any evident reasons !


Is the HP Win 7 slate already dead?

Microsoft Cancels Innovative Courier Tablet Project

,----[ Quote ]
| According to sources familiar with the
| matter, Microsoft has cancelled Courier, the
| folding, two-screen prototype tablet that
| was first uncovered by Gizmodo.
| We're told that on Wednesday, Microsoft
| execs informed the internal team that had
| been working on the tablet device that the
| project would no longer be supported.
| Courier had never been publicly announced or
| acknowledged as a Microsoft product.


Success Delayed is Failure

,----[ Quote ]
| The last quarterly report looked good only
| if you ignore the inclusion of deferred
| licences from other quarters for â7â. The
| next quarterly report will be more honest. I
| look forward to the end of April.
