HP to begin building Android tablets and possibly smartphones, too

HP-Android-Slate

After the WebOS and¬†TouchPad failure, HP laid out of the mobile market for a while. Well, latest reports say that HP is going to take another stab at the market, but this time with Android-based tablets instead of WebOS. On top of that, they’re even considering a future Android powered smartphone, too. HP makes some pretty solid hardware, and they obviously do very well in the desktop and laptop market space, so I’m sure they’ll have a great chance to shake up the mobile industry as well.

Rumors say that it’ll be a Tegra 4 powered tablet, which has been in development since Thanksgiving of last year, so this definitely isn’t a hasty decision by HP. Hopefully we’ll hear a little more about these devices in the next few months.
