HP Is Already Working On Windows 8 Tablet For Launching Next Year

HP CEO Meg Whitman confirmed earlier this week that HP was indeed working on a Windows 8 tablet. She may or may not be talking about the Touchpad leak that we talked about earlier; the ones that were running Windows 8. She said that she thinks it is not too late to enter the business. Vice President of the Personal Systems Group, Tom Bradley, also said that he believes HP needs to be in the tablet business.

Whitman also said that she has noticed HP trying to a lot of things at the same time whereas she likes to do a small number of things really well. According to her, HP is currently concentrating on a small number of computers and adding quality to them.

HP’s decision to revive their attempts at tablet shows the effect tablets are having on the market. HP’s last attempt at a tablet fell flat in the market and yet they want to make a comeback. Given then industry interest in Windows 8 tablets, it looks the platform is going to start yet another wave of tablets in the market. With its completely reinvented UI, the latest Windows is certainly going to pose a serious challenge to the current niche leader — the iPad running the iOS from Apple.
