HP Has Big Plans for Chrome and Android

HP seems to be joining the hordes of Google devotees. HP is aggressively replacing Windows-Intel (Wintel)-based devices with mobile devices and ARM-based computers, which are using competing OS.

At the HP company event held this week, CEO Meg Whitman said that Intel and Microsoft, until recently HP long-term partners, are steadily becoming direct competitors and rivals. She was talking about Chrome and Android.

HP’s executive vice president Dion Weisler, in charge of personal systems and printing, added that Android and Chrome are a $46 billion opportunity. Their sale is growing at significant 12 percent.

HP plans to continue offering a large range of Windows-based products, such as HP Spectre 13 laptop, powered by the new Windows 8.1. But, their hopes for the bright future evidently lay in their offering of Chrome and Android.

Some of the Google OS-operated products that HP is committed to offering are:

  • The HP Chromebook 11, which does not have Windows.  The Chromebook 11 is a laptop with 11.6-inch screen, with Chrome OS and Exynos 5250 processor. At 2.3 pounds weight and 0.7-inches thickness, it is light, and at $279 price tag, it is affordable too.
  • HP's Slate 8 Pro is the company’s first high-resolution small tablet. It is 8-inch long and its IPS display has a resolution of a 1,600x1,200-pixels. Slate 8 has Nvidia's Tegra 4 and 2GB of RAM.
  • Some other HP’s new Android devices are the HP Slate HD and HP Slate Extreme.
