"Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is in Singapore today to help promote the launch of Office 2010/Imagine Cup Awards Ceremony, nothing too surprising there.Evidently Steve took some questions from the audience and on Windows Phone 7, he reportedly had this to say: We're focused on putting Windows Phone 7 in phones, no plans for tablets."
So the source is a Twitter post (Through WMExperts), however this meshes with what I've heard about WP7 and tablets, namely that there won't be one (Since "what I've heard" is journalistic lingo for "I've heard nothing"). So we've got an iPhone OS tablet (the iPad), we've got Android tablets on the way, but we won't have a WP7 Tablet. And I don't think that's a bad thing, as WP7 is striving for something noble: A really great smartphone experience. Anyone going to miss a WP7 Tablet?
