HP rumored to launch its first Android smartphone any day

HP could possibly branch out to the smartphone world very soon

2013 began a trend of low-budget off-contract smartphones. With the Nexus 5, Moto X, and Moto G debut, contracts have begun to become a thing of the past. Rumor has it, HP will soon be included on this list, as well.

The folks at 9to5Google have gotten word that HP could possibly launch their first Android-powered smartphone as soon as next week. Supposedly, the phone will launch for around $200 (off contract), and will somewhat resemble Samsung’s 5.5-inch Galaxy Note. To produce a phone for only $200, they are taking some obvious cost-cutting procedures.

HP has been talking about smartphones for quite some time, and now it’s becoming a reality.

It’s always nice to see a big company like this take a different path. And if the phone turns out anything like the Galaxy Note or HP Slatebook line, we’ll be pretty happy about this.
