The recent rash of less-than rumor surrounding HP deciding to run webOS on their upcoming Slate tablet were thankfully put to rest today by HP’s Chief Technology Officer Phil McKinney. When asked by ZDNet if it would run Palm’s webOS, McKinney replied, “Don’t believe everything you see online“.
Before we have HP putting webOS in toasters, printers and tablets oh my… let’s wait until the ink is dry on the final sale. We’d love to see webOS on a tablet someday, but we’d also love to see a rainbow striped unicorn. Neither are happening this year, although if a unicorn shows up we’ll name it “Hurricane”.
