According to the rumor mill from The Information today by way of The Verge., Hewlett-Packard aka HP may or may not release two brand new Smartphones by the end of 2013. That gives the computing company eight days to make rumors come true. The phones — for which no leaked or officially sanctioned images exist to our knowledge — are expected to be a 6-inch and a 7-inch screen devices.
The origin for today’s rumor is — surprise, surprise — “sources”. Both products are expected to run Android, not HP’s webOS.
Previously, HP launched and soon thereafter shuttered its webOS smartphone ambitions with the Pre3 (see hero image above) and the itty-bitty Veer (see below). The phones couldn’t compete against the Apple-Samsung near-duopoly in the global smartphone marketplace, let alone claw past the likes of HTC, Sony and LG.
The prices are pegged in the range of $200-250 USD and the two rumored phones now under discussion will be released in emerging markets first, specifically India, China and the Philippines.
