HP's UK PC boss: We're going nowhere

TouchPad's on fire since we cancelled it!

Top three mobile application threats

HP's UK Personal Systems Group head Paul Hunter has sent round an open letter urging calm on recent news that the ink giant is rethinking its PC strategy.

This was widely reported as "HP gets out of PCs" – not hugely surprising given IBM's similar strategy.

But Hunter said: "Let me be absolutely clear in saying that at no stage has HP said it is quitting the PC business. Three options are being investigated, and whether the company is spun off, sold or kept in the HP portfolio, the team in the UK remains committed to creating and supporting great products and services."

He stressed it was business as usual for HP in the UK.

Or fairly normal at least in a week when HP cancelled the Touchpad and immediately saw demand for the slabs go crazy.

Hunter said: "The sheer scale of interest in the discounted products took us a little by surprise. We are now working on ensuring everyone that owns a webOS device has a positive experience." ®
