| still planning a Slate with Windows 7. HP
| has declined to comment Friday on the
| current status of the product. HP
| introduced the Windows 7 Slate on stage
| during Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's
| keynote at CES in January, but since the
| news of the Palm acquisition hit the
| company has been mum on its future. HP
| also declined to comment on a recent
| report quoting unnamed sources that the
| company was killing the Windows 7 Slate.

| Days after reports surfaced last month
| that Hewlett-Packard Co. was reconsidering

| software in a forthcoming tablet device,
| H-P made a curiously timed hiring
| announcement.

| H-P declined to make Veghte available to
| comment for this story. He won't
| officially begin work at the company until
| May 17.
| Microsoft spokesman Bill Cox declined to
| comment on the company's relations with H-
| P and other computer makers. Cox noted
| that the tablet market remains relatively
| small, while Microsoft has already sold
| over 100 million Windows 7 licenses
| following its October release.
