Fox: HP's Putting Windows 8 on TouchPads

By Sam Biddle on at

HP tablets are dead! No they aren't! Yes they are! Either way, Fox claims they're at least on some sort of life support, and being tested with Windows 8.

Fox's Anonymous Source™ says HP's playing with Windows 8 on TouchPad as a "proof of concept"—which means even if A) This is true and B) It runs well on the TouchPad, it might still never become a reality. After all, at some point soon there might not even be a computer company named HP anymore.

But here's a question—do you want this to be true? Part of the TouchPad's renaissance owed something to WebOS' cult following. Of course, the $100 liquidation sale in the States sure helped. [Fox News]
