HP stays true to its plans to build a tablet with Microsoft despite just having bought Palm
By Shelley DuBois, reporter
Hewlett Packard has been hinting that it was going to come out with a fancy new tablet for some time. Bloggers have been questioning whether the company's new partnership with Palm would finally generate the product that talks with Android and Microsoft didn't.
Turns out HP and Microsoft are still making a slate together. The two companies plan on releasing a tablet this fall, Todd Bradley, executive vice president of the personal systems group division of HP (HPQ) announced at the 2010 Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference.
"I think you'll see us with a family of slate products, clearly a Microsoft product in the enterprise and a webOS product broadly-deployed," says Bradley.
