Is HP`s Todd Bradley hinting webOS tablets on the HP`s tablets roadmap?
In a recent Q&A session made at the HP Global Influencer Summit 2012, held over two days in Shanghai last week, the first question asked of Mr Todd Bradley, head of HP's newly merged Personal and Printing Systems (PPS) Group, was about tablets, he dropped hints that there may be more to its tablet strategy that the world has yet to see.
"That's not to say that (our stated strategy) is forever. I think it's clear that the market's evolved, the market's changed," he said. "I think when we announce the roadmap for tablets you'll see a very compelling solution set that the tablet becomes part of."
HP's senior vice-president for the Asia-Pacific region for the PPS group, Mr Dion Wiesler echoed Todd Bradley saying:
"I think what we've learned about tablet devices are that they benefit from three key things. Always on, always connected, thin and light, long battery life,"
Sounds like a webos tablet on HP`s roadmap . After all we take HP`s CEO Meg Whitman word :
HP wanted to clarify that Whitman said HP could make WebOS-powered tablets in 2013.
While we know that HP is ceasing development of WebOS in phones, it’s interesting that the company is continuing to bet on the OS in tablets, said techcrunch.
With respect to whether HP can be a consumer and an enterprise company, Whitman believes that the company can continue to do both and says that the company’s current strength is that it is able to be successful in both product areas. “If you ask any guy on the street about what HP is known for, it would be computers,” she says, in an interview made by techcrunch
In April 5,2012 we wrote about this related news:
The probability of a new webOS tablet for early 2013 is high. The Stingray,OPal, or Topaz or.........webOS tablet perhaps?
Note: The code names Stingray, Opal and Topaz were before found for webOS devices in 2011 and we are just guessing these names here.
