HP did involve themselves in the world of smartphones before, where their Windows Mobile devices (yes, you read that right – Windows Mobile and not Windows Phone, going to show how long ago that was) did make some waves in the mobile market back then. Having said that, HP might very well be looking at entering the mobile device market game again, where the folks over at DigiTimes have reported that they could very well offer highly affordable devices at approximately $250 a pop – without any contract, of course. this comes right off the heels of word that HP is about to launch a $200 phablet in due time, so perhaps these might be “siblings” of each other?
Word on the street has it that these new devices will come with a 5” to 5.7” display, and in all probability, it ought to be powered by an Intel processor. The design itself does not look all that great though, since it has a rather ordinary design, other than the inclusion of a HP brand logo so that you know just where it hails from. The design itself does seem to be a generic one from one of those China-based companies, but perhaps the final design would be different somewhat. Who knows?
