“We can’t even make an iPad challenger”

Tony Bradley, PC World:

“Perhaps, though, that is ultimately why HP has terminated the Slate. Maybe HP realized what the HP-faithful and Windows loyalists still deny—the iPad represents a fundamental shift in mobile computing that defies direct comparison with PC’s or virtually any other platform for that matter.”

Of course, there’s also the small matter of having just bought an operating system which looks a far better bet as a competitor to iPhone OS, but leaving that to one side, Tony’s point has the ring of truth about it. Simply putting s touch veneer on top of a desktop operating system is no longer enough.
