HP Confirms webOS Tablet
HP confirmed in its earnings conference call last week that it will introduce a Microsoft-based tablet device this year and a WebOS-based tablet early next year, Engadget reported.
The company, which dismissed CEO Mark Hurd earlier this month, reported earnings for the quarter of $1.8 billion, up from $1.7 billion the same period the year before. Revenue from the PC business rose 17 percent.
HP purchased Palm, the maker of WebOS, for $1.2 billion in a deal announced in April.
