An interesting bit of news has come out of Fortune’s Brainstorm conference with HP providing an update on the seemingly dead HP Slate product. In addition to that, webOS 2.0 release date was discussed as well.
Microsoft‘s week has come to a crushing end. I say this because sources suggest that HP has decided to kill its Windows 7 powered HP Slate project. The thing to ask here of course is why? The answer which won’t go down well with Microsoft is its highly successful Windows 7.
Guess what Google is doing behind closed doors. It is working on an iPad competitor. This information was shared by Eric Shmidt with his friends in a recent party held in Los Angeles. Google Tablet as revealed by the CEO himself would be running exclusively on Android, which is an interesting prospect since the search engine giants are working on Chrome OS as well.
Last time the, HP folks showed the features that HP Slate had and iPad didn’t have: Adobe Flash and Air support. This time they have rolled out another video which is based on the same theme : Highlight the cool features of the Windows 7 powered tablet that are missing from the Apple Tablet. Video after the jump.
Back in January, Steve Ballmer announced HP Slate, Microsoft’s answer to iPad. To be fair HP Slate offers one thing which iPad falsely claims to provide – complete web browsing experience which of course includes playing Flash games, viewing Flash videos and more. As a matter of fact, HP has shared a video which shows Adobe Flash and Air running on the Windows 7 powered Tablet. A promo video has been made available as well. Videos after the jump.
We told you that Microsoft would be announcing the HP Slate and guess what – it has been announced. It was unveiled by none other than Steve Ballmer during his CES 2010 keynote speech. From the initial look, it comes out as a beautiful looking device and since this is HP we are talking about, it bound to have a appeal to it as you can see from the picture shown below (Prototype video shown below)
As I write this post, Steve Ballmer is performing his keynote duties at the CES 2010 event. And already, a lot of interesting announcements have been made. Be sure to check out this post as we will update it with more and more interesting news from Microsoft’s CEO keynote speech.
Its confirmed – Microsoft is all set to announce their very own powered Slate with HP playing the manufacturer part. The ever popular Steve Ballmer will be talking about it in his CES 2010 keynote, which is always fun to watch. With this, Microsoft has beaten Apple in announcing the Tablet/Slate device.
Many of you would be enjoying your Thanksgiving holiday. Well we got more good news for you. Microsoft intends to become a part of your holiday season, with your comfort their main priority, which Apple apparently doesn’t care for. To facilitate its consumer base, Microsoft has announced smokingly hot black Friday deals for its consumers. And, it is unique since you don’t need to go to the mall to buy holiday gifts, you can sit at home and purchase gifts directly from Microsoft Store.
Sources told TechCrunch that Google‘s Chrome OS has an early version launching next week. Early screenshots proved to be fake, and later screenshots depicted the browser component of the OS. Sources inside Google have said there’s more to Chrome OS than that.
One thing we know is that the browser in Chrome OS will be able to mount drives and function as a system navigation tool. How will hardware support be in these early builds? Although Google and device manufacturers are on the case writing drivers for your favorite peripherals, don’t count on all your devices working with Chrome OS right away.
The new OS will initially target netbooks with a particular aim to give Windows XP users something besides a crippled, expensive Windows 7 to upgrade. Now the question is that which computers will be able to run Chrome OS, it is guessed that Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba will be able to run Google’s Chrome OS. But does it mean hardware or software from other companies won’t be compatible?
