Killing TouchPad And WebOS Phones
HP's decision to retreat from the Tablet and the smartphone market in August 2011 has left the company without product offerings in two of the fastest growth markets. HP is poised in the next several weeks to launch its first Tablet product since the TouchPad debacle. The HP offering is an expandable and serviceable business Tablet that is being backed up by one of the biggest channel enablement efforts in years. HP CEO Meg Whitman, meanwhile, has signaled in an interview with Fox Business News that HP intends to get back into the smartphone game.
