Remember back around September when HP announced that because of their massive failure with the HP Touchpad and WebOS products in general, they would be leaving the consumer tablet market? Well that’s still true, but they are interested in developing some Windows 8 tablets aimed at the business market.Windows 8 is certainly a promising operating system for both business and consumer markets, it will allow immensely versatile interaction that we’ve never really seen before. A touch utilized interface (Metro UI) as well as the full Windows experience for laptop/desktop level programs. It’s an area that could be really rewarding for users if manufacturers are able to provide a good experience.
So HP, I don’t want to see any of that blind development and production with no thought about competing products that you showed off all too well with the HP Touchpad. I want to see some competitive and well designed products. Make it happen.
