Ink cartridges maker Hewlett-Packard (HP) has rubbished rumours it is planning to sell its PC division.

A report in the Commercial Times, a Chinese business newspaper based in Taiwan, suggested HP was tabling deals with Lenovo, Foxconn and Samsung for the sale, V3.co.uk reports.

The newspaper said HP was eyeing up a deal with Samsung because it thought it would pay more for market share.

But the toner cartridges firm has issued a statement denying the claims.

"Irresponsible reporting by Taiwan's Commercial Times, suggesting that HP might sell its PC business, should be dismissed as market rumour and speculation," said Bill Wohl, HP's senior vice-president and chief communications officer.

"HP runs the world's largest PC business and it is core to HP's strategy for the connected world."
