    HP Slate to Run Windows 7, Not Recently Acquired Palm WebOS

    I ran an article the other day speculating on the future of the HP Slate as it relates to the OS it will be adopting for the much anticipated device.  Will it run Windows 7 or HP’s recently acquired WebOS. It looks like there may be an unofficial answer, as a page about the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference shows a variety of vendors that will be releasing Windows 7 tablets, HP included.

    Though HP has said that they will be using WebOS in devices in the next year, this does seem to confirm that at least some form of the Slate is still alive and kicking. More news in the coming weeks as the launch date is fast approaching.
