HP's new tablets – rebranded Huawei models?

0. phoneArena posted on 22 Jul 2014, 06:31

HP is rumored to unveil 3 new tablets, probably within the next few weeks. The trio consists of two 10-inchers and one smaller, 8-inch tab. They are to be named HP Slate 10 Plus, HP Slate 8 Plus, and just HP 10 Plus. Reportedly, they are made by Huawei and the two Slate models are very similar to a couple of offerings from Huawei's own line. Thus, we are probably looking at a rebranding and minor upgrade of the contractor's models.

knowing HP it wouldn't surprise if these are Huawei made, touchpads before were great but they dumped it due to panic reaction now its too late I guess for another player between Samsung and apple.

HP should build and market premium quality products if they want to have the faintest chance to sell in such a competitive market. Or, they could focus on products with competitive price/quality ratio. But it seems to me that until now they've been trying to sell only products with the same specs of chinese clones, but at the price of HP products, which is a suicidal strategy imho.

The HP name is just tainted at this point. The need to re-invent themselves badly.

But charging around $400 for that screen resolution and silicon? Yikes
