I’ll be at CES 2012 in Vegas to get the first hand announcements about Windows 8 from Mr. Ballmer but it seems that there might be much more to cover there as well.

HP may have unceremoniously killed its TouchPad tablet but it seems like they will be back with a vengeance in 2012.

HP’s managing director in Europe, the Middle East and Africa Yves De Talhouet revealed that a tablet running Windows 8 would be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.

Speaking about the debacle that surrounded the death of the HP Touchpad, Mr Talhouet said “We thought we had a good asset with WebOS and thought we could combine WebOS with a good hardware, but we retreated from that because of the economic conditions to enter that market,” he told the site.

I’m looking forward to seeing if HP can get their act together at CES 2012.
