There is news going around that Hewlett-Packard has been scouting for smartphone manufacturers. If you remember their announcement that they were dropping their plans to produce the Pocket PC Phone Edition version of the iPAQ 5xxx range, it makes you wonder if HP would even sell a Smartphone.
But apparently, HP has shelved their Pocket PC Phone Edition plans for the MS Smartphone platform. It has been reported that HP has been inquiring about smartphone prices from several Taiwanese contract manufacturers. Those approached by HP are High Tech Computer Corp (HTC). Compal Electronics, Mitac International, Asustek Computer, Inventec Appliances and Quanta Computer.
