Surviving in these times requires offering products in all kinds of markets and there are companies that, for one reason or another, do not. HP is a good example of this, since it offers a product range of computers with a well-earned prestige … but if you don’t have phones and tablets, the results don’t come … and that’s exactly what happens. HP sees its future threatened.
This company has already tried to break into the mobility market by buying Palm for $ 1.2 trillion, in what has become one of the least successful moves in the world of technology today. And, although HP has tried not to return to this market because of how it came out, it has had no choice but to try again… worse, now, with more modest pretensions and, certainly, with a greater logic.
With a phone on the horizon and possibly a tablet
As HP CEO Meg Whitman indicated in a television interview, everything indicates that this company has already developed what will be a new phone, codenamed Bender, and will have an Android operating system. That is, HP tries to return.
And this has been known in the same way that a good number of devices are known: through the results of a test (benchmark), in this case GLBenchmark. In this information the name Bender has become known and that it belongs to HP. Here is an image that attests to this:
But some more details are known, not many, that’s true … but enough to think that it will be a solvent first attempt but that, possibly, it will not try to compete for the best performance title at first. Some of the known specs are that your processor will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz, that the screen will have a resolution of 1,366 x 720 and that the version Android will be Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.04) -although this obviously may vary in its release to the market-.
The fact is that HP seems to be back and, knowing the quality of this manufacturer, it can be a very interesting breath of fresh air … even more so when it has been known that this company already you have tablets with Windows 8 operating system ready… Will it also have Windows Phone in the future? Do not rule it out.
