Apple and Samsung can exhale: H-P (HPQ) won't be making a smartphone next year, says Meg Whitman at a Gartner event, while adding the company remains interested in eventually offering one. Whitman also declared 2013 a "fix and rebuild" year and reaffirmed H-P commitment to the PC market, in spite of its recent struggles. Slumping Autonomy's big data analytics position was talked up, and Whitman claimed H-P had 2K public cloud beta customers. (FY13 guidance)
