HP Slate to be re-branded as Hurricane and powered by Palm’s WebOS

in Technology

It could be inferred that the acquisition between the computer maker HP and smartphone manufacturer Palm would put some influences on HP's plans relating to its "Slate" tablet.

 

Some rumored that the device will get another name of "Hurricane" and run on a new operating system based on Palm's WebOS. The release date of HP Hurricane is also delayed to the third quarter of the year.

 

However, it is unlucky that the Slate's development has been slow and rocky. While Apple iPad has been sold with more than 1 million units, HP's product is still not finished.

HP Slate to be re-branded as Hurricane powered by Palm's WebOS

 

The first introduction video of HP Slate was released to gadget enthusiasts in March without any technical specifications for the device. Its videos just reveal that the device will be powered by Windows 7.

 

The HP Slate seems to be more outstanding than Apple iPad as it offers a built-in camera, video-recording capability, USB port, an SD card reader and support for Adobe Flash, all of which iPad lacks.

It is also rumored that the Slate may be sold ranging from $550 to $600 for the 32-GB and 64-GB models, respectively.

The release date of HP Hurricane is also delayed to the third quarter of the year.

 

Right after Palm was acquired by HP last month, HP confirms that Palm's new operating system, WebOS may be a good fit for the HP tablet.

 

Together with the new operating system, HP Slate is also said to be re-branded as Hurricane.
