Android tablet from HP may be shown off at Mobile World Congress

Computer giant HP is looking to expand its horizons in the technology world. A new report suggests that the company will attempt to offer its own line of mobile products based on the Google Android operating system.
 
The first Android device offered by HP will be a high-end tablet using the NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip. NVIDIA claimed that the Tegra 4 was the world's fastest mobile processor during CES 2013.
 
HP hasn't gone official with the tablet yet, but sources indicate that the official announcement could come soon.

Other claims made by the sources include a little tidbit that HP is currently exploring the option of launching an Android-powered smartphone. HP's own CEO, Meg Whitman, has stated in the past that her company needs to offer a smartphone.
 
“We have to ultimately offer a smartphone because in many countries of the world that would be your first computing device,” said Whitman in September 2012. “There will be countries around the world where people may never own a tablet or a pc or a desktop. They will do everything on a smartphone… we have to take advantage of that form-factor.”
 
The smartphone reportedly won’t be coming out this year, but any further delay in getting out a credible entry into the cutthroat smartphone market can’t be good for HP. Even a well-respected company like BlackBerry still faces an uphill battle with its “re-entry” into smartphone relevance with BB10 and the Z10/Q10.
