In Short

Hewlett Packard — better known as simply HP — is an American technology company based in Palo Alto, California. Known more in the past for Windows (and Windows Mobile) devices, computers, printers, then a failed enterprise with webOS, HP also currently makes Android devices as well as Chromebooks.

In 2010, HP acquired Palm and everything within it. In 2011, after launching only the HP Veer, HP Pre 3 and HP Touchpad, the company announced it was to discontinue its mobile business and webOS was no more – though the platform was subsequently sold on to LG for use on some pretty nice Smart TVs.

HP currently has a line of top-selling tablets and laptops that includes the HP Spectre 13 X2, HP ZBook 15, and HP Stream 14.
