HP (Hewlett-Packard) was founded in 1939 and started off as a small, electronics company. The company grew and is now a huge computer hardware/software company. Their products include computers, printers, scanners, cameras, servers, mobile phones and much more. In 2010 HP bought smartphone software and hardware company, Palm, for 1.2 billion dollars.

    Recent rumors have suggested that HP might be curious about getting back into the smartphone game with a possible Windows Phone release, but as far as the recent products we've actually seen from HP go, the name of the game has been tablets. Today we hear from HP to expect more along that line, as the company unveils five new tablets, including one based on a design we just shared with you. Yesterday NVIDIA announced its Tegra Note tablet platform, with news that the actual hardware would be licensed to other manufacturers to sell as their own. HP may be one of the first to do so, as the ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about some Nokia Insider information that mentions the use of Android on Lumia models for testing purposes before the deal with Microsoft came to be. Then we talk about HP as it's now rumored that the company will build their own Windows Phone, even though the report is quite limited. Samsung is up next as the FCC has received yet another Windows Phone for approval, and this one seems as if its going to AT&T. We then talk about the HTC One Max since hey, we're still waiting for it, and leaks in photos continue to surface. We end today's show ...

    HP doesn't quite seem to know what to do about smartphones these days. It has a storied history with them, releasing Windows Mobile models (like the iPAQ 210, above) before getting into webOS. Since the shuttering of that platform, though, we've wondered what the future might hold for HP phones. Certainly, we've seen Android tablets from the company, but rumors from earlier this summer of an HP Android phone ultimately proved fruitless. Now there's a new idea going around, suggesting that HP will release a Windows Phone model. This rumor is very light on specifics, but supposedly a ...

    We already have a series here at Pocketnow lamenting the choices of smartphone and tablet manufacturers, and trying to learn something from their most visible mistakes. It's called Worst Gadgets Ever, and it's a fun little video series that you should check out. But sometimes, a broader look at the industry's development is useful - and given the right attitude, it can also be fun. Earlier this year, our own Taylor Martin took you on a tour of smart phone form factors that are officially dead - not necessarily due to poor decisions, but owing to the constantly shifting mobile landscape ...

    Nobody likes a cheapskate. It's why we have fun derogatory labels like "tightwad" and "skinflint" for those friends of ours who insist on dividing the bar bill by how many mozzarella sticks they actually consumed, rather than by the cost of the plate. Whatever other merits they might have, penny-pinchers just aren't fun to have around. That's no less true in the case of huge multinational corporations than with people. But where a cheap social friend is pretty easy to jettison when he gets annoying, it's a little harder to make up for the shortfalls of dealing with a cheap company. ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the AT&T pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 1020, which we know many of you are expecting. HP is next as all the headlines of their probable Android-based smartphone are sadly not as accurate as the renders we found. The Sony Honami is next as we have more detailed specs of the device. We later talk about the LG G2 and the reasons for those buttons at the back. We end today's show talking about the iPhone 5S manufacturing, and some probable delays in the process. All this and more after the break. Stories: - AT&T opens Nokia Lumia 1020 ...

    Overnight, we shared with you a "render" of what was supposed to be an upcoming HP Android phone, but between the overuse of lens flare and overall amateur-hour look to the whole thing, we were seriously far from convinced. Now there's the arrival of some specs to complement that "leak," and they're once again weird to the extent that we're wondering if this isn't all one big joke. This screenshot from AnTuTu's device info screen claims to reveal specs like a Snapdragon 800 SoC and a 14.5-megapixel camera, and also assigns the name Brave to the handset. But what is up with that resolution? ...

    Even though one might think that HP already had its chance at becoming successful in the mobile landscape, it is always good to see new (and old) players join the game. HP's Senior Director Yam Su Yin said earlier this month that the company might be planning on returning to the smartphone business. On that exact note, a couple of renders (mock-ups) have surfaced on the internet allegedly depicting an HP Android phone. According to the report there is no information attached to these images, so don't expect specs and pricing. What we can see is Android (since webOS is no longer with HP) ...

    An HP executive inspired a world-wide facepalm announcing that it would be getting back into the smartphone game. Seriously. The same HP exec went on to explain that this new smartphone would offer a 'differentiated experience'. Uh huh. Then, he further continued to explain that there was no time table, but even though they are late to the game, they are not late. Yeah. That sounds about what I'd expect to hear from an HP executive. So, I'm going to take off my webOS fanboy hat, and just look at this as an outside observer for just a moment. No Staying Power The only thing HP has ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the carrier leaks regarding a possible launch date for the Moto X. HP is up next, believe it or not, and this time because they've dropped the price on their Slate 7. Google's Nexus 4 takes the spotlight afterwards, as the white variant is no longer being sold in the Google Play Store. Nokia's Lumia 1020 is next as we're still not sure if the device will be called 902 or 1020, but we'll know soon with their July 11th event. We end today's show talking about HTC and their sad Q2 results. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Carrier ...

    Back in April, we saw HP slowly get back into the mobile device game with the launch of its Slate 7 Android tablet. It was pretty affordable, and had some interesting features, like Beats Audio on a non-HTC model, but we ultimately found it to be just too pricy for its lower-end hardware. At the time, we noted that if HP ever got around to shaving just a bit more off its already-low price tag, the Slate 7 could finally reach that point where it was cheap enough to offset some of those hardware concerns – we mentioned coming in under the $150 mark as a key target. Well sure enough, HP is ...

    Before we begin, we'd just like to say something to everyone who's going to call us out for click-baiting with that "Galaxy S 5" title: your allegations are completely founded and true. But look here: even though Galaxy S 5 rumors are (to say the least) premature and indicative of a serious problem with our nasty-fast industry -an issue we discuss on the air- they're also important. That's because, as unreliable and, frankly, stupid as they are, they also give us an opportunity to discuss the future of Samsung industrial design. And any opportunity we get to talk about the Galaxy family in ...

    The HP TouchPad Go was to be the savior of webOS as we knew it.  It would have, with one swipe up and one swipe over, cast aside all doubt that HP and webOS were major players in the tablet space. But HP just couldn't give it a chance to swoop in and save the day. OK seriously, the TouchPad Go would have been a nice little tablet – emphasis on little – and may have stalled webOS's decline. Realistically though, it would not have stopped the great “Too Many Cards” in the sky from ultimately claiming webOS into her bosom. But it would have been really nice to try. So, for those of ...

    Today marks the anniversary of the release of the first webOS handset, the Palm Pre. As such, you're bound to see plenty of nostalgic looks back on the much-beloved platform throughout the day – and we're certainly no exception. But beyond all that, we have ourselves somewhat of an oddity today, with some actual webOS news crossing our desk – that's saying something for a platform that's been shuttered for the better part of two years. This development concerns one of the key digital signatures webOS uses to authenticate communication with HP's servers. Like a credit card, these ...

    It's been four years to the day that Palm's would-be savior platform, webOS, launched to much hoopla with the original Pre. And though the days since have been dark ones indeed for the all-but-dead platform, we thought it would be nice to indulge our nostalgia on this, the anniversary day of "20090606," with a Palm Pre unboxing. Fortunately, our own Michael Fisher happened to have a like-new Palm Pre box, an artifact from a launch-day excursion to his local Sprint store all those years ago. And while the Pre within might charitably be called "well-loved" in terms of its physical condition, ...
