    I think it would be cool to see HP get in on it, the more the maryer. Besides HP is a computer comp. and there computer only run windows, so less of a chance of them having a problem again. It would be cool to see anuther big windows computer company get in. I wont be surprized if dell seys something in the matter of comming back to the phone market 6 mounths after apollo come on line. WP really is just getting bigger and better really fast and no all the companys want in.

    HP has zero hope with Nut-meg at the helm.

    I hope not. Nokia, Samsung and htc dominate already. Ask Dell how that went. Just concentrate on creating a nice W8 tablet

    HP can do it but only with a good visionary leader. I can pull it off if I was leading the charge and HP makes good phones a HP Windows Phone 8 would be great for business and consumers.

    Windows should try to get as many PC OEM's to make Windows Phone 8 devices to battle the flood of Androids. With ASUS, Dell, MSI, Accer, Lenovo all in the mix pumping great Windows 8 phones and PC's there is no way Windows 8 will fail.

    Read the article from Computex? It's happening as we speak on the tablet front.

    Maybe if Dell hadn't gone cheap on the wi-fi chip and allowed Internet Sharing, the DVP would have been a bigger success. For all its detractors, the Venue Pro is an awesome device with most of the features the enterprise crowd wants. Yeah, the camera is an abortion that lived but it's not a deal breaker, most companies don't even allow camera-equipped phones anyway.

    Before replying, remember this is a yes or no question and we don't need another hate-fest. If you hate HP, for whatever reason, keep it to yourself.
    Nope. Not playing that game again.

    HP has to make a phone to complete that ecosystem. They have desktops, laptops, slates, printers, routers they have everything to fill a household but they dont have a phone to sync everything SMH.

    HP, Dell, Accer please take notes. Google will be releasing unlocked Galaxy Nexus's running Jellybean this fall. Why cant you release unlocked Windows Phone 8 devices to counter battle that.

    If Dell actually focused on the Dell Venue pro and made buying the phone easier my corporation would be using Venue Pro's instead of iPhones but hey they missed that chance

    HP had a phone, in fact a family of handsets and a top OS... but due to a poor executive, who didn't like hardware, it got screwed over, and HP (and their investors) got their fingers burnt, big time.

    Their slate (Touchpad) was also an awesome device, but inevitably fell to the same fate as their phones.

    The purchase of Palm could have proved the best thing HP had done in years, especially if they considered licensing WebOS to other OEM's to create a strong eco-system, but all that has faded now.

    The idea of investors letting them burn money in the mobile sector, not to mention the execs themselves willing to stake their reputations (and jobs) by even proposing it, and then having the balls to see it through, is just about remote a possibility as Windows Phone overtaking the iPhone eco-system in 2012.

    The final nail in the coffin, is a complete loss of confidence and trust from media, retailers, networks and consumers, in light of WebOS/Palm fiasco.

    Yes, I think they will. They just knew that WP7 was for consumers and so passed on it. An HP tech replaced my motherboard a few weeks ago and emailed me from his iPAQ! If nothing else, they will release a new device for the sake of their field engineers!

    That and HP doesn't have any passion in their products.
