HP is getting out of the tablet business, canning its mobile computing business including cellular handsets and is spinning of the HP computer business. All of this seems dramatic, but the Apple surge in taking over the mobile computing market is shaking even seasoned competitors.
I posted a story about unsold HP TouchPads yesterday and the problems at HP runs even deeper. The razor thin margins on PC has also made HP consider getting out of that business as they announced earlier to day that they were spinning off the computer business to concentrate on software.
