5 Companies That Came To Win This Week


HP: Going Android

Looks like Hewlett-Packard may finally have a (new) plan to win in the mobile space.

Industry reports indicate that HP is planning to shortly release Android-powered tablet PCs based on the Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, and that the company may also release Android-powered phones.

Deja vu? HP talked big about webOS-powered tablet PCs and smartphones when it acquired Palm nearly three years ago, but ended up scrapping its TouchPad tablet and never did come to market with such a phone.

But things could be different with Android which, unlike webOS, is a widely adopted operating system. And HP has already launched its first Google Chrome-based portable PC.
