Here's an Engadget interview with Stephen DeWitt (head of HP's WebOS division) in which he says absolutely nothing at all.
Here's the really scary part:
We're talking with Microsoft about Windows tablets. We have a Windows tablet in the market right now that is very much a solution in our vertical approaches -- not something that we put on the shelves of Best Buy, because, obviously, if you're going to be on the shelves of Best Buy, you're competing against the iPad.
There's a growing feeling in the industry that there is no tablet market, only an iPad market. HP seems to agree, and this in line with the price-slashing that's going on across the board. No one can catch the iPad, so HP is looking into vertical markets to see if it can pick up anything there.
In a way, it's sort of ironic. When Jobs returned to Apple he said that announced to a shocked Mac community that 'the PC wars are over, and we lost.' He then set about creating a new marketplace for Apple, which is where we are today.
I wonder if the likes of HP are thinking the same thing: 'The tablet wars are over, and we didn't even make it out of the trench.'
