yea but HP and Lenovo are later to the phone game (the phone game is where the relavence is) , well atleast lenovo i presume, w/out research i mean. HP was deff in the PDA (PDAs were more computer than phone) game right? but not the phone game. and tablets are computers... SLATE computers, that the dumb Isheep have dubed a "Tablet," and Tablet got popular so now, EVERYONE says tablet when referring to a Slate Computer. and poor pooor Real tablets like the Gateways n Fujitsus got to be called "Convertables" or "Transformers," so yea.
its the Phones that matter here
