From LinuxBSDos.com.First came the Slate 7, HP’s Android-powered tablet computer. Now HP is about to release a 21.5 inch sibling – the Slate 21. This was what I hoped that HP will do with webOS, but that hope died when HP abandoned webOS in favor of Android.
With the news that HP intends to use Linux-based WebOS on its Slate tablet, do you think this is Linux's big chance to take on Apple's iPad, or do you think WebOS on Palm Pre didn't do enough to justify you parting with your cash to buy a Slate?

After unlocking the machine (see http://androidxl.blogspot.jp/2013/12/unlocking-your-hp-slate-21.html) we are apparently stuck.
It is a shame since the machine itself shows some potential and it would be a great platform for an Ubuntu Tablet distribution.

Indeed, The VAR Guy has a sneaky suspicion that Surface Pro will be the defining moment in Ballmer’s career. But will that moment be a highlight or a low light?
