Worldwide PC leader Hewlett-Packard, while exerting big energy in the consumer mobile-device space, has also been busy on the enterprise side, rounding out its offerings for the education vertical market. On Feb. 2, HP launched the Digital Learning Suite, made up of a number of components that can be mixed and matched, depending on the classroom and the need. The suite—which includes a tablet-like device, a thin client and a portable whiteboard—aims to offer solutions for three education segments: early education, or pre-kindergarten through the fourth grade; secondary education, or fifth through twelfth grades; and blended-learning environments that include the cloud. The suite launched just days after HP vowed to back President Obama's Startup America initiative by offering support through educational and technological outreach programs to startups and small businesses.
