    HP will make Windows 8 tablets, no WebOS plans yet



    Hewlett-Packard announced Thursday that it has decided to keep its PC business, which is the world's largest, after considering a spinoff of its "personal services group."

    Such as separation was first proposed in August by HP's then-Chief Executive Leo Apotheker, who was ousted in September in favor of former EBay CEO Meg Whitman. Whitman and HP have decided to stick with PCs.

    But what about tablets? And what about HP's WebOS operating system, which also went under a strategic review in August?

    Whitman addressed those questions in a call with analysts Thursday after breaking the news that HP PCs were here to stay, saying that HP would build tablets running Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 operating system.

    Windows 8, as the Technology blog has reported, will run on PCs as well as tablets.

    It seems that no one has read anything about HP in the past month. They canned there old CEO and gave him 25 mill to go shove his ideas about getting out of computer building and hired there first woman CEO as did IBM. People are still thinking that HP is out for good of computers but this is not true.
