HP Slate for business only

Move ends weeks of speculation and adds fuel to fire regarding webOS model.

HP has confirmed that it’s much-hyped Slate, first manhandled by Steve Ballmer at CES back in January, will not be landing as planned later this year, for regular gadget fans anyway. The Windows 7-packing tablet is being primed for ‘enterprise’ with business types only getting the device.

The announcement, made by HP’s Todd Bradley during a Fortune event across the pond, comes as no surprise. For months there’s been talk that this thing was doomed, with mixed messages about availability trickling out of Microsoft and HP.

Of course, this only fuels talk about the so-called PalmPad, HP’s rumoured webOS tablet, which is said to be landing later this year, replete with stylus.

Were you planning on getting an HP Slate? Will you now get a PalmPad instead? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
