HP PalmPad running webOS coming in early 2011
That seems to make sense to me. A slate tablet running webOS should be easier to use, less expensive, and have better battery life. It would be perfect for consumers who are looking for a multimedia or entertainment device (or gaming device, or e-book reader, or mobile web browser).
For business professionals who are looking for a mobile tablet, it seems to make more sense to offer a device that runs Windows 7. This way, you won't get caught up looking for virtualization options if you need to run your enterprise software on your mobile slate. I can't wait to get my hands on one!
