hp_android

According to the Verge, Hewlett-Packard is building Android tablets, and is considering building an Android smartphone as well. We all remember how spectacularly HP failed with the webOS-powered TouchPad, but considering that its failure was largely attributed to HP’s hardware decisions rather than the software itself, it will be interesting to see if they’ve learned from their mistakes this time around.

Apparently, HP’s new tablet will be powered by the new NVidia Tegra 4 and will be announced quite soon. If you’ve kept up to date with all things HP, you might recall that last September, CEO Meg Whitman said that the company will be offering a smartphone, and that they might ‘dip their toes in the water’ by releasing a tablet this year.

I’m not sure if I’m terribly interested in HP’s tablet — as far as I’m concerned there’s nothing OEMs can offer me that the Nexus line can’t, but I will reserve judgement until I see it for myself.

Surprised at this frankly. I thought the big box movers like Dell/HP/Lenovo would throw their lot in with Win 8, and attempt to sell their phones/tablets to MS-Loyal IT departments where they already have an installed base.

I still use my Touchpad, now running Android. It’s great!

I loved the Touchpad until I bought the Nexus 7 so I’d be interested to see how this one pans out.
