Technology giant Hewlett-Packard on Jan. 20 unveiled a slew of tablets and commercial mobility offerings, including eight mobile devices and an ecosystem of accessories, aimed at businesses spanning education, health care, retail and field organizations. The tablets run either Windows or Google's Android operating system and employ technology such as Gorilla Glass 4, Corning's toughest cover glass to date. Plus, they can be paired with accessories like the Duet Pen, which employs Qualcomm's Snapdragon digital pen technology. The market for mobile devices such as tablets will evolve in the near future based on dramatic shifts in business workforces, workplaces and even the work styles of employees, Michael Park, vice president and general manager of the printer and personal systems group for commercial mobility and software at HP, told eWEEK. HP's workforce is increasingly global and multicultural, influenced by the entry of digital natives and the increasing mobility of their work. At the same time, Park noted, businesses are dealing with a changing workplace made up of contract employees and flexible work arrangements, adaptable workspaces and increasing use of cloud-based technologies. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at HP's latest tablets and accessories.
