HP TouchPad to Go Back Into Production?


At least, it could be the future for Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), which is slated to back away from computer manufacturing. Despite this major, Earth-shattering decision, one HP exec thinks that the company could bring back the TouchPad.

In an interview with Reuters (via Business Insider), Todd Bradley, the head of HP's Personal Systems Group, said that the company could resurrect the ill-fated tablet.

"Tablet computing is a segment of the market that's relevant, absolutely," he told Reuters.

But even if that doesn't happen, CNET has some good news for TouchPad owners: they will continue to receive updates and support for the device.

An HP spokesperson told CNET that an “over-the-air update that will enhance the platform and add functionality and a growing applications catalog” is on its way.
