Leaked Images Possibly Show HP’s Forthcoming iPhone-Like Smartphone

It's fair to say that the smartphone market has grown too large to ignore, and with PC sales in a slump, expect to see some OEMs get more involved in the mobile market. One of those OEMs is Hewlett-Packard, the second biggest supplier of PCs in the world behind only Lenovo. While nothing is yet written in stone, a leaked render of a new HP smartphone has found its way to web.

The render depicts an Android device, which is the same platform powering HP's Slate 7 tablet. As far as smartphones go, HP's ultimately axed the U.S. launch of its Pre 3 in 2011 and has been quiet ever since. Now that HP doesn't own webOS, it makes sense that a return to the smartphone arena would be accompanied by Android, the world's most popular mobile platform.

Unfortunately, the tipster who sent PhoneArena the leaked render didn't provide any other details, such as specs, price, or release date. A little advice for HP -- bring your A-game. The handset market is a crowded one, and it's a long climb to the top where Samsung and Apple currently sit.

Definitely fake. The HP logo isn't even centered and the blue led at the bottom of the front is pointless.

I think it is fake, too, but that LED is for notifications like on many phones. The Nexus 4 has one in the same area.

Even tho i know it's fake, what's up with all the copieng the iPhone design? Why not come up with something new...

- To be back on topic, I do think it's fake you can see how badly it is photoshopped.. =P
