HP Making a Comeback to Smartphones

Long after the bitter saga with Palm, where HP lost billions of Dollars in a stale investment; the company is taking its first steps in moving along. A company executive, who spoke with The Indian Express, stated that her company wasn't done with smartphones, and that its comeback products are already on the drawing boards.

In the interview, Yam Su Yin, HP's Senior Director of Consumer PCs and Tablets for APAC, answered to the affirmative when asked about an HP-branded smartphone in the near future. "The answer is yes, but I cannot give a timetable. It would be silly if we say no. HP has to be in the game."

HP wants to make sure its comeback product will stand out from the swarm. "Being late you have to create a different set of proposition[s]. There are still things that can be done. It's not late. When HP has a smartphone, it will give a differentiated experience," she said.
