    Makes me sad Whitman did not announce anything about webOS tablet, although I realize it might be too soon.
    I guess also she is thinking business customers for win8 tablets would include also education market. But she calls it "back to school" so is she also marketing it as BYOD for children/parents.
    Ipad so hot now in education market, HP almost has to get in there or they will lose the battle. Still I think it would be hard for anyone to compete.

    Interesting that she says smartphone strategy "undecided."
