A Game Changer for Hewlett-Packard?

The following video is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Tim Hanson discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Shares of Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ  )  were up more than 12% on Friday after the company reported better-than-expected first-quarter earnings. On Sunday, it announced that it's returning to the tablet market with a seven-inch Google Android tablet. Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman says the company is in the second year of a multiyear turnaround. Will the new tablet improve the company's fortunes? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts discuss the future of Hewlett-Packard.

The massive wave of mobile computing has done much to unseat the major players in the PC market, including venerable technology names such as Hewlett-Packard. However, HP's rapidly shifting its strategy under the new leadership of CEO Meg Whitman. But does this make HP one of the least-appreciated turnaround stories on the market, or is this a minor blip on its road to irrelevance? The Motley Fool's technology analyst details exactly what investors need to know about HP in our new premium research report. Just click here now to get your copy today.

    The Motley Fool used to mean careful research. I'm not so sure now. I get the feeling that there's lots of reading other peoples articles and less basic research..

    HP has had a "tablet" PC (one with a screen that pivots, and included a stylus for hand written notes & presentations) since the mid 2000's. Then, before they released the Touchpad, they had the original Slate tablet, running Windows 7. And they have a Slate tablet PC running Windows 8 available now. All were, or are, in the business line of HP PC's. It's not hard to find out these secrets.

    Just go to hp.com and look for yourselves.

    I confess to being long on HP, own HP stock, and a proud HP employee who also is a long-term Motley Fool reader.
