HP Looks To Launch Business Tablet
Ink company HP has announced that it will enter the tablet market in a bid to capitalise on the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend.
The ink specialist is branching out from its printing services to announce the system, which will be confirmed at some point in the next few weeks to coincide with the hype surrounding the expected launch of Microsoft's Windows 8, reports Computer Reseller News.
Speaking to the news provider, Todd Bradley, executive vice president of HP's personal systems and imaging and printing groups, suggested he has much confidence in the company's products.
"I think our entire product lineup from printers to workstations to PCs to tablets as we get into the fall is going to show how committed we are to the space, how committed HP is to our business," he explained.
The comments come after HP announced that an extra 2,000 people could be axed as part of its redundancy programme.
