"We think there’s a better opportunity for us to go after the enterprise space and those consumers that use PCs" HP VP of worldwide developer relations Richard Kerris told The Loop, going on to point out that the tablet segment is still far from saturated.

Problem is, the iPad has already made its presence well and truly known, dominating the consumer tablet market, and Android's Honeycomb drive gains OEM support by the week.
