Yes, HP (HPQ) has now jumped into the tablet fray with its TouchPad. It's a whiz-bang cool gadget, and some folks will want to rush out and buy it. Are we talking iPad numbers? Not likely, but whether HP sells as many of its flavor of MOREMichael V. Copeland, Senior Writer - Feb 9, 2011 3:41 PM ET
Honeycomb, or Android 3.0, is a big, impressive step toward the unified, mobile world that Google is trying to bring to us. But rest assured that Apple will give Google some stiff competition with its own upgrades.
With images of blue and black-striped bees leading the way through its Mountainview, Calif. headquarters, on Wednesday Google gave a deep-dive into Honeycomb, a tablet-ready version of the Android operating sysem it hopes MOREMichael V. Copeland, Senior Writer - Feb 2, 2011 3:37 PM ET

But ask the Motorola Mobility gang (they spun off from Motorola and went public on Tuesday) if they are now building laptops and they get coy. "We are blurring the lines," says Alain Mutricy, SVP for mobile devices, "but we are MOREMichael V. Copeland, Senior Writer - Jan 5, 2011 10:28 PM ET
