HP Slate Running Windows 7 Could Still be Announced

Microsofts [MSFT] Worldwide Partner Conference kicks off today over in Washington D.C. where it is expected that the HP Slate could be on show again. A few months back it seemed like the HP Slate had been dropped due to HP buying Palm and webOS. Most people expected that a HP Slate running webOS was going to happen.

Over on the WPC website, captured above and below, it shows Windows 7 Slates with HP being listed as one of the “partners” which kind of indicates that there could actually be a Windows 7 HP Slate launching perhaps this year.

Other companies listed include Sony, Dell, ASUS, Panasonic and a number of other large brands.

Also showing up on the website are Windows Phone 7 details indicating who the partners will be for these devices. Garmin-ASUS are listed along with Toshiba, Sony Ericsson, LG, HTC, Dell and Samsung which indicates a number of the large mobile phone manufacturers are on-board with the new handsets.

It appears like a lot could be announced at the event. We’ll let you know if we hear anything worthy of a mention.

Update: The keynote was by Steve Ballmer who confirmed that Slates are incoming this year although HP wasn’t mentioned by name.
