Did HP Cancel the Development of the Slate?

As techies are trying to get over the news about Microsoft ditching the Courier project, another soon-to-be-released tablet computer may end up shelved as well. According to TechCrunch, HP had stopped developing the Slate, thereby killing the project. Its sources claimed that HP was not thrilled about the performance of Windows 7 on the tablet. Add the fact that HP has recently bought Palm and expect some shakeup about to happen. Introduced last January, the Slate would have been released this June for US$549.

When reached for comment, representatives from HP refused to respond to the issue, saying that they “do not comment on rumors and speculation.”
