While this website about HP tablets is not associated with HP, we do talk a lot about their products, so here is a little background on the company that brings us these tablets and desktop computers.
HP is an American multinational information technology corporation headquartered in Palo Alto, California, USA that provides products, technologies, software, solutions and services to consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors.
“The tablet effect is real,” Leo Apotheker, former HP CEO said on the call with analysts on August 18, 2011, “Consumers are changing how they use PCs.” That same day HP announced that it would strategically exit the smartphone and tablet computer business, focusing on higher-margin “strategic priorities of cloud, solutions and software with an emphasis on enterprise, commercial and government markets”. They also contemplated spinning off their personal computer division into a separate company. HP’s fundamental restructuring to quit the ‘PC’ business, while continuing to sell servers and other equipment to business customers, was similar to what IBM did in 2005.
