Whitman: HP’s Windows 8 Tablet Slated For 2012

HP CEO Meg Whitman has big plans for the ailing computer company. And those plans start with a new Windows 8-powered tablet by year’s end.

Speaking at a Wall Street Journal event on Thursday, Whitman confirmed that HP is once again testing the tablet market waters. Its last attempt, the WebOS-running TouchPad, was such an unmitigated failure it had to be led out back and shot just two months into its production run. The new tablet, according to Whitman, won’t compete head-to-head with the iPad, but rather, it will be marketed to enterprise clients and feature a stronger focus on security and management features.

No other details on pricing or availability were released. [WSJ via BGR]
