HP hasn’t had the best go of it the past few years. According to a report from ReadWrite, though, it’s trying to get off the mat with a new premium tablet, powered by Android. The reported tablet would run Nvidia’s new Tegra 4 processor, and has been in development since before Thanksgiving. HP’s business side has actually been producing some really awesome hardware, like the Envy X2, and the EliteBook Revolve. Both of those run Windows 8, though. So this is a change on the OS side, even though HP has poked around with Android a bit in the past. There is also some talk of HP going into smartphones, though that’s a more tenuous proposition. We’ve never seen HP design a great smartphone, and flashbacks to the Palm and WebOS acquisition don’t fill anyone with confidence. We’ll see what HP has at Mobile World Congress later this month, where it will supposedly show off some new hardware.
