A few days ago, HP CEO Meg Whitman said in a TV interview that the company will not be giving up on its smartphone ambitions any time soon despite its inability to penetrate it after years of trying. HP attempted to enter into the smartphone market early enough with their Palm Pre but unfortunately, this did not work. After that they tried the tablet market with their HP touchpad to compete with the iPad and this has given the company more hope that going with Android is probably the best chance they have to succeed in such a competitive market.
HP has its fans all over the world, after all it is a very successful company with their computers and notebooks. The company is making plans to introduce a new smartphone that will run on Android dubbed HP Bender. The benchmark details have already surfaced and it appears the phone will be running on Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich and will sport a dual core Snapdragon S4 processor and a screen resolution of 1366 X 720.
The strange thing about these details is the screen resolution of the phone. From the look of things, this could be a tablet rather than a phone. For now, we have no more details regarding this mysterious device but we hope that we can get more details soon. The question now is, would you go for a mid-range HP Bender smartphone or tablet simply because of the company name? Do you think because HP has a reputation to protect (or build), will they pack the bender with enough features to ‘wow’ its fans? Let us know what your thoughts are in the comments section below.
