HP reportedly may launch cheap, big smartphones by the end of this year

Reporting on HP’s desire to return to the smartphone market, sources say that the company plans to release new six- and seven-inch phones by the end of the year. The devices will be aimed at such emerging markets as India, China, and the Philippines, and will be sold off contract for between $200 and $250.

Amid falling PC sales, HP can’t afford another mobile misstep like it suffered with Palm’s webOS. The company has a few Android tablets but will soon introduce several low-cost 6- to 7-inch phablet phones in emerging markets says The Information.
