It’s been a week or so since HP officially announced that it was acquiring Palm and rumours about the companies’ joint products have started to surface. Apparently, the two are readying a webOS tablet called Hurricane, which is pretty odd, considering that HP unveiled the Slate tablet a while back during CES 2010. However, a couple of days ago we learned that this project was cancelled, so the Hurricane might replace it.

Rumours claim that HP and Palm’s brainchild will debut in Q3 2010, but webOS is a strange choice for a tablet, if you ask me. Perhaps a new version of the platform will put the slate’s features to good use and for now, we consider the whole story about the Palm/HP tablet to be as real as the one concerning the BlackBerry slate.
