In its earnings call today, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) CEO Meg Whitman remarked that its position in the PC market has been boosted by recent efforts to sell tablets powered by Google's (GOOG) Android, thus allowing it to compete in tablets again after discontinuing its Palm/webOS TouchPad in 2011. "If we have the right product and the right price, the channel still loves H-P and they want to sell our products," Whitman said. "Frankly, having Android products helps a lot."

    After the ill fated efforts with the Palm/webOS it is good to see that they did not fall back on the Microsoft dependency HPQ had in their game plan. Looks like a move in the right direction at last.

    Win 8 is (was) a complete disaster, and HPQ is not an MSFT lapdog. About time. Nice to see some fresh thinking.

    Aunt Meg taught me how to plan, develop, care for, and harvest a neat vegetable garden.

     

    Fixing HP ought to be a piece of cake.
