HP Tablet Tables Turned

Are you as confused as I am about HP's smart phone and tablet strategy? Or is it a case of the company simply not having one? First word leaked that this whole business was being disbanded. Then there was a fire sale on HP tablets using webOS (which it bought from Palm). I think HP was selling a $500 unit for a cool hundred bucks.

That generated some excitement so HP is rethinking its whole plan. Now it seems that webOS will live on and will be part of HP's hardware group. It will also be included in its software division.

Meanwhile HP isn't offering any clarity on these issues. For such a huge company, you'd think it would have at least someone who knows the basics of corporate communications.
