Will HP kill the Slate running Windows 7?

Rumors are circulating everywhere that HP is going to kill the Slate. Is it because of Windows 7? The limited battery life? Read the report on TechCrunch.

Given that HP is buying Palm, maybe they're going to release a slate tablet running webOS instead of Windows 7. Other hardware manufacturers are developing slates running Google Android, but HP could be the only one making a slate running webOS.

If HP wants a product that will effectively compete against the Apple iPad, then a slate running webOS makes more sense. A slate running Windows 7 probably doesn't make sense unless battery life and performance improves significantly. If HP creates a slate tablet running webOS, then battery life and performance should be at the same level as the Apple iPad.
