Because it worked out really well last time
HP CEO Meg Whitman has confirmed that the company is taking tentative steps back into the world of the smartphone.
"We have to ultimately offer a smartphone because in many countries of the world that would be your first computing device," said CEO Meg Whitman.
"We are a computing company, we have to take advantage of that form factor."
But when it comes to phones, HP won't be repeating past mistakes and buying up BlackBerry-makers RIM.
When asked if that was a possibility, Whitman emphatically replied, "No, that is not a direction that we're going to head."
