HP was one of the companies that got left behind when the smartphone ascended at the expense of the personal computer. The PC giant has never been able to crack the mobile market but it has almost continuously launched tablets through the last few years, even though none have been a success. HP now says that it will continue to build slates, but will now be focusing on purely the high end market.Over the recent holiday sale blitzes HP was basically fire selling its tablets in what now appears to be a ploy to cut inventory as much as possible. The company has recently split into two entities, one which focus on consumer products (where the brand has struggled recently) and into enterprise (where HP is still a force). The enterprise division will be focusing on ?business mobility? and that the company will introduce tablets that will compete with the iPad.
"We are going to focus where there is profitability and growth and will not chase the low-end tablet market. We are focusing on business mobility to deliver tablets built for field service, education, retail and healthcare."-David Coughlin, President, HP Personal Systems
