I was considering using the phrase â€œwho isn’t? inch somewhere in this post, but I would be remiss not to mention that I’m actually happy to hear this news. There are already a bunch of random no-name devices out of Asia that will boot Android, but when a big company steps in, others take notice, and generally this leads to competition, which breeds innovation, and in the end we get devices that users actually want.
TechCrunch has revealed that HP is working on a slate device that will run Android. You may have seen that an HP slate running Windows 7 was revealed yesterday during the Microsoft keynote. Apparently the Android version is quite similar, possibly a bit smaller. There isn’t a lot of info at the moment, but you can catch a quick teaser below (supposedly of the Windows 7 HP slate, but as we’ve heard, they should be very similar).
