Here's a brief history of the internet's infatuation with the idea of a webOS tablet: First we heard that HP was buying Palm. Interesting! Then we heard that the Windows 7-running HP Slate was cancelled. Very interesting. Now, a post on the Examiner citing "industry insiders" says that a WebOS tablet dubbed "Hurricane" could be arriving as soon as Q3 of this year.
It certainly seems like HP would try to get such a product out as quickly as possible, though there's nothing in this report that's substantial enough to get too excited about. Still, I want to believe, and so I will. [Examiner via Engadget]
