HP CEO admits that "innovation takes too long to get to market"
HP's CEO Leo Apotheker is veryenthusiastic about the upcoming HP/Palm products including the HP Pre 3 and the HP TouchPad, but even he admits that as innovative as thoseproducts are the delay of their launch is significant:
“It’s not that we aren’tinnovative, it’s that it takes too long to get to market,”Apotheker comments. Both devices are expected in the summer months,with rumors slating the HP TouchPad for release in June. The trulyunique webOS experience unfortunately seems to suffer delays from itsinitial launch on the Palm Pre and those delays were in the core ofPalm's problems. But just when will the quicker launch of products happen? Obviously, not for thisgeneration of products, but hopefully we'll see HP push future devicesfaster to market.
