No matter how many critics scoff at the idea, H-P (HPQ +0.5%) appears intent on re-entering the smartphone market. Asked whether an H-P smartphone will arrive, Asia-Pac exec Yam Su Yin replied, "The answer is yes but I cannot give a timetable. It would be silly if we say no. HP has to be in the game." His remarks echo past comments from Meg Whitman. An enterprise-focused Android phone seems a good bet for an initial offering. (H-P Android tablets/PCs)
