HP has always wanted to compete with Apple's iPad. It had earlier formed a partnership with Microsoft to develop a Windows 7 based tablet but that plan got scrapped. It then announced that it was releasing an Android based tablet which they're now saying, won't ship out at the end of the year as originally planned.

Rumours suggest that since HP has acquired Palm, it will come out with a webOS slate this October but again, if this materializes, the Android device from HP most likely won't.
