Hewlett Packard might launch an Android based high end Tablet PC this year


HP To Adopt Android For Upcoming Mobile Devices – ReadWrite

HP’s first Android device will be a high-end tablet that is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 chip, and it could be announced soon, according to two sources familiar with the matter (the sources spoke on the condition that they not be named because they are not authorized to discuss unreleased products).

The tablet has been in the works since before Thanksgiving and sources say it could be one of the first tablets to ship with the Tegra 4. NVIDIA’s latest mobile chip was just announced during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January and it features some impressive specs, but we have not seen many devices adopt it yet. NVIDIA’s own Project Shield gaming system is slated to debut Tegra 4 in the second quarter of 2013, while partners Toshiba and VIZIO are also reported to be working on Tegra 4 tablets.

Sources also say that HP is currently exploring the launch of an Android-powered smartphone, but recent comments from CEO Meg Whitman indicate HP will not offer a mobile phone this year.
