HP is going to come out with a tablet one of these days. That’s no surprise. The company showed off a Windows 7 tablet prototype earlier this year. And while plans for that particular device were put on hold indefinitely, HP is definitely on track to launch a tablet running Palm WebOS at some point.

But it turns out Windows and WebOS weren’t the only operating systems HP was working with. All Things Digital reports that the company was also planning to launch an Android tablet in the fourth quarter of 2010. Don’t get your hopes up though… even though we’re just not learning about this particular tablet, we’re also learning that it’s been delayed.

The report suggests that HP is putting its Android tablet on hold for now. It’s not clear how final this move is. HP may still launch an Android tablet… some day. Or it might not.

And now you don’t know much more about HP’s tablet plans than you did when you started reading this article. Sorry about that. But at least we know HP is considering — and then ruling out — its options.

  1. You have to wonder if HP is using the threat of producing an Android Tablet JUST to get Microsoft to give them better pricing? HP is a huge MS “partner” and most likely MS will buy them out of the idea to even produce an Android tablet?

  2. Whoah, announcing the delay of a vaporware introduction….brilliant! Slows purchase decisions while completely eliminating delivery liability. Pure genius.
