HP will will be unveiling its new line of consumer electronics today at an event in Miami. By expanding its product range into devices like the iPod, the company is seeking to build a cooler image. But can they sell people TVs?
Dell and Gateway have had success with their own range of electronics – between them they offer LCD televisions, portable music players, DVD players and PVRs, so it looks like there is a market out there for them. If Sony can go from selling TVs to selling computers, then perhaps HP can do it the other way round.
HP issued a note to the press yesterday that they will be introducing digital photography, music and entertainment experiences – aside from the branded iPod, they are expected to introduce a 42” plasma HD TV and 26” and 30” LCD TVs, along with a storage device intended to be a entertainment hub.
