Ultimately, HP, You’ve Got To Do Something

on September 14, 2012

Via All Things D:

“We have to ultimately offer a smartphone…” ~ Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman

When exactly is this “ultimately” going to be?

“My mantra to the team is: ‘Better right than faster than we should be there.’” ~ Meg Whitman

What? Say what?

(W)e’re working to make sure that when we do this, it will be the right thing for Hewlett-Packard, and we will be successful. ~ Meg Whitman

Are you also planning on jumping in on the hot new “horseless carriage” business? Or investing in the Pony Express? In case you haven’t noticed, the smartphone market isn’t waiting around for you to “ultimately offer a smartphone.”

There’s a time and place for things and this is no time to be telling us that you’re “ultimately” going to be making a phone.

Stop telling us that you’re going to do something. Do something.
