HP rumored to be releasing a webOS tablet in Q3

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:37PM EST

According to an HP insider, by way of The Examiner, HP will be releasing a webOS-based tablet in Q3 of this year. Presumably featuring better hardware than the poorly reviewed HP Slate — recently scrapped by HP — the webOS tablet is said to be codenamed “Hurricane.” Now before anyone gets too excited, we should remind you that HP’s acquisition of Palm has yet to be finalized and still has a few months to go; HP said the deal should be done by July 31st. So…unless HP is already working hard on the Hurricane — or simply believes it wouldn’t be all that hard to slap together a decent tablet in a few month’s time — we find this whole “Q3” business a bit hard to believe.
