I am here to stay ?
Hp, recently ousted Leo Apotheker, the embattled CEO who led the company for the past year. He has been replaced with Meg Whitman, the new CEO. She had issued a statement that she will not cancel Leo’s future plans for the company.
While Meg thinks so, Digitimes, the retail channel paparazzi has heard some interesting chit chat. According to the sources, HP wants to back off from their decision to spin off their PC unit and bring back the sales. This is due to increased channel pressure. Channel partners were scared after HP’s decision to look at spinning off their PSG unit, so they looked for other PC mftrs. like Acer, who seems to be the most profitable of this change of mind. Hp is expected to ship 37-38 million notebooks in 2011, but i don’t think that will happen unless channel operators have their confidence back. Hence the rumors. So will Hp back track it’s decision ?
Meg Whitman is the only person who can answer.
The Xoom 2 has been rumored for a long time now. Finally, it has leaked in pictures. The image you see above is the face of the new Motorola Xoom 2, or should i say, Googorola Xoom 2.
Anyhow, the next version of the original Xoom, is codenamed MZ617. According to DroidLife’s sources, the Xoom2 weighs similar to the original, has HDMI and micro USB at the bottom, and a HD camera on the back with big buttons for power and rotation lock. A SIM card slot is present, assuming LTE is supported. No mention about the processor, screen size looks like the same 10.1″. And look at those angled corners, they definitely remind me of Nokia’s design styling with the N8,E7 and X7. Also, the Nokia patent design for tablet looks *very* similar. Come on Nokia, sue google/motorola NOW 😛
Let’s hope atleast this Xoom is good for a tablet experience. But for this to succeed, Android honeycomb has to be good, i don’t see that happening. Check source link for the picture of Xoom 2’s backside.
