    Sure it's just 15% of revenue, but it's better than 15% of NOTHING

    Lenovo sells more smartphones than PCs, profit up 23% - Computerworld


    Meanwhile on the home front:
    HP reports higher profit but will slash up to 16,000 more jobs - Computerworld

    HP actually made money in PC's, thanks to the end of Windows XP. and cutting jobs to boost profits. (Slash your way to prosperity... that will work )

    That is the American way these days...

    I still think that the 'If you build it, they will come" cliche still holds true. Build a decent phone, and people will buy it. Look at Apple and Samsung. Palm had the OS down, but could not get the hardware portion fully set and for some reason HP did not capitalize on this during the time they ran the palm acquisition into the ground. I think had Mark Hurd hung around, it would be a different mobile landscape as far as HP would have been concerned because IIRC the palm deal was his baby.
