HP says its cool with Microsoft Surface

Posted on Wednesday, August 15 2012 @ 17:23:20 CEST by

While some PC makers like Acer strongly dislike Microsoft's Surface project, others like HP say they applaud the device for "getting out in front and demonstrating what's possible".
While we don't expect HP to come out and say that they are scared of the Surface, as surely the company has the resources to build quality products, the statement from John Solomon, senior vice president of HP’s Americas region printing and personal systems division, is more bullish than we expected.

Solomon said that the relationship with Microsoft has not changed since the Surface announcement and they are bullish on what Microsoft is doing. Solomon stated the following to CRN:

I believe Microsoft was basically making a leadership statement and showing what’s possible in the tablet space,” Solomon told CRN. “Our relationship has not changed at all due to Microsoft’s announcement. In fact, I applaud it — I think it’s great that they are getting out in front and [demonstrating] what’s possible.

Of course, this could all change if Microsoft is able to lower the floor on the pricing of the Surface to the rumored, but hard to swallow, amount of $199. If Microsoft does deliver hardware at that price point and it is subsidized, HP may have a change of tune.
