HP getting ready to ‘aggressively attack’ smartphones and tablets... with Android devices?
We’ve recently heard Hewlett Packard’s chief executive Meg Whitman say that the company will after all offer a new smartphone, and now reports have surfaced that this time around HP is betting on the most prolific smartphone platform, Android.

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?
