HP Exec Claims Company Has Plans To Re-Enter The Smartphone Market

hp-windsornotHP has attempted to break into the smartphone market in the past by purchasing Palm’s webOS platform, but unfortunately despite webOS being with met with favorable reviews, HP was not successful and ultimately abandoned webOS which was picked up by LG earlier this year. However it looks like HP’s dream of remaining in the smartphone market is still alive and well, according to the company’s Senior Director of Consumer PCs and Tablets for Asia-Pacific, Yam Su Yin, who according to an interview with the Indian Express, revealed that the company is working on a new device and that they are by no means done with smartphones.

While the specifics of the phone remain a mystery, such as possible hardware specs, design, or even what platform it will run on (Firefox? Android? Windows Phone? Sailfish?), Yam was quoted as saying, “Being late you have to create a different set of proposition[s]. There are still things that can be done. It’s not late. When HP has a smartphone, it will give a differentiated experience.” A release date of HP’s future smartphone is unknown at this point as well, as Yam was unable to provide a time table for its potential release, but it’s nice to know that HP has not completely given up despite earlier setbacks. Anyone interested in seeing what HP might have to offer with their future smartphone?
