HP getting ready to ‘aggressively attack’ smartphones and tablets... with Android devices?

HP will “aggressively attack” both the smartphone and tablet markets, according to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek recent note to investors.
HP’s last attempt to enter the mobile space was a short-lived one. Just around a month after it launched the webOS-based HP TouchPad, the company pulled the plug on webOS, cancelled its HP Pre 3 project, all under the strong influence of then CEO Leo Apotheker.
Newly appointed Meg Whitman seems to renew HP’s somewhat lost focus in consumer products and the mobile industry and we can only hope the company brings a great Android device, competition is always welcome. Do you think it stands a chance against the big names like Samsung, though? What would it take?

I doubt this very seriously...HP can barely deliver a decent laptop or pc without costing an arm & leg...so even think about smartphones is hilarious...Leave this to Microsoft in there struggle with getting Windows phones in the market. Let the HP Touchpad tablet be an example!! HP entered and left the tablet market in 6 months. I think it will be less in the smarphone world!

You kidding? HP is the mass market king of PCs. Definitely a lot better than Dell or Emachine or the other major player in the field. Now as far as premium PCs, some companies do outdo HP, but in the low and mid markets they dominate because their machines tend to be the best in their price ranges. I've been an HP guy since 2003 when I got a Compaq machine, then got another in 2009, and now have a new one in 2012 and still have the one from 2009, using it as an HTPC now.

The only problem is HP is not known for its build quality in the notebook segment...hope they can up the game in the mobile segment. By the way adnroid is always a good choice...scratch that its the best!
