Bill Gates Still Pushing Tablet and Pen

Bill Gates, in a Fox Business Network appearance along with Berkshire Hathaway execs Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger, says that Microsoft is still cooking up some Tablet and Pen goodness.

This comes after news that the Courier is dead and still unconfirmed reports that the HP Slate isn’t going to be using Windows 7 as the OS. (Side note: we’ve seen several comments and reports that say the HP Slate is still on.)  Here’s the money quote from the interview:

“Microsoft has a lot of different tablet projects that we’re pursuing. We think that work with the pen that Microsoft pioneered will become a mainstream for students. It can give you a device that you can not only read, but also create documents at the same time.”
