HP dives back into tablet computing with Houston design

Posted: Updated:

Computer giant Hewlett-Packard is wading back into the tablet business, more than a year after backing out of the consumer mobile device market.  A group of Houston developers is largely responsible for the move.

Monday, HP unveiled its new ElitePad.  The tablet computer is based on Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 mobile operating system and is designed for business users who already make wide-use of Microsoft products.  It was developed at HP's Houston Design Lab along Tomball Parkway.

"There is this little tech bubble that is inside Houston," HP's Stacy Wolff said.  "A lot of people may not know, but we are definitely innovating here and bringing a lot of cool products to market."

The ElitePad is expected to hit the market in January.  HP has not announced a price for it.
