    We have some pretty solid industry intel that HP is going to jump back into the tablet market big time. In fact, they are also planning to "aggressively attack" the smartphone market as well, and they plan to use the Android OS to do it. Here's a quote with some of the details,

    This seems like a brilliant move by HP. For one, almost all technology us evolving toward the mobile world. Two, Android pretty much owns the mobile landscape. This makes it a no-brainer move by HP, and we are looking forward to seeing what they can come up with. Would you consider owning an HP phone or tablet?

    HP... no...

    They've tried (like Dell) a bunch of times to get into the smartphone arena. Each attempt completely failed. They had a really good chance with WebOS but just killed it off.

    I would think about owning a HP smartphone or tablet. I own a Dv6 laptop and i have had zero problems with it, it is designed well and has good aesthetics. The only thing i will not be doing is jumping on the first product released. It seems now adays that OEM's are using comsumers as beta testers for their products and there are always issues out of the box. I personally will wait for those unforseen issues to be worked out before trying an HP mobile product but they do build quality products and wil give them a look for sure.

    I own a dv6t, its awesome. My laptop is an HP, my wireless keyboard and mouse is HP, my printer is HP, my laptop sleeve is HP. lol, i like HP. The fact that they would comeout with an android phone sounds pretty good. I would love that. I would not like a WebOS devise, only an Android one. Thats really not to knock on WebOS but i have so many purchased apps with android, im kinda invested into it now :happy3:. Im not going to do the same with another OS. I love android too much for that as well. An Android HP phone would be amazing. Just make it so its a very competitive device and i would buy it. It would match everything. :biggrin:

    Not for me

    I loved my Palm Pre Plus, which is what I had before my Droid Bionic, but I have not had any luck with any HP product I have ever bought. WebOs was a great OS, but the hardware was crap (I understand it wasn't HP). I feel if WebOs had Motorola hardware or something along those lines of quality, it would have survived. I wouldn't buy an HP android phone.

    They should revive WebOS. Its a shame they gave up on it so quickly.

    I will never own another hp anything. My $800 laptop that i've had for a year and a half has been nothing but trouble. The fans have quit working and the hard drive has died.

    Not the biggest fan of HP. Everyone says they make such great computers, but I bought a $950 HP Pavilion laptop a few years back and it was the biggest piece of crap I've ever had the misfortune of having. I'm gonna stick with macbook pros from now on (Nothing wrong with me enjoying Apple AND Android products! :D )

    The more the merrier!!

    Still wish HP would keep putting out WebOS devices. Maybe they could incorporate WebOS elements into their version/skin of Android.
