HP’s latest tablet is powered by Windows 7, which is all fine and dandy, but when it comes to mobile devices, the talk of the town in undoubtedly going to be Google’s Android OS. While HP doesn’t have an Android-powered tablet just yet, word is going around that a major magazine publisher’s senior editor claims to have seen multiple devices, one even powered by Android, and it is roughly twice as large as an iPhone, though smaller than the tablet shown at CES. An Android tablet will certainly be welcome, and in line with the current trend, though it’ll be interesting to see how it affects HP’s tight-knit relationship with Microsoft. HP’s Media Relations head, Marlene Somsak, doesn’t deny that HP is working on multiple slates, but also says that HP doesn’t have any Android tablets to announce so far. Sounds ambiguous, so maybe there’s hope yet, eh?
