H-P (HPQ) is set to unveil its first new line of printers in seven years as Meg Whitman continues her attempt to turn the company around by increasing its middling share of the fast-growing market for "multifunction" printers, which include scanners and software to manage electronic documents. The new products are also among the first fruits of Whitman's decision to increase R&D spending again.

    With their wealth in these technology domains they should have something to offer to maintain their leading position in this market.
    Chapeau for Meg Whitman who has taken / enabled this.

    I spent 30 years at HP, and at one time there was pride in innovation. The phrase of 'eat your own young' was understood by all business leaders. So how did it come to this. Taking 7 years for new product introductions? Seven years is 2-3 product life cycles for a company focused on innovation and leading the market. Great that this is finally happening, but it is important to root out the underlying cultural and leadership weaknesses that lead to this. Innovation is the key to greatness for HP again.
