Mark Hurd (CEO, HP; above) is a worried man. And so is Michael Dell. And mostly because of Steve Jobs, whose iPad launch, for whatever reasons, has catapulted Apple into becoming the second most valuable company on the planet (after ExxonMobil). The bone of contention is the tablet PC market, with HP (about to launch Slate as their iPad answer) and Dell (about to launch Streak) ready to jump into the market in a big way. While HP has its distribution as a plus, Dell has its pricing strategy to beat Apple’s first mover advantage. But HP might score in another area – after their recent purchase of Palm, HP gets unrestricted access to use Palm OS on their tablet PCs, rather than the previously decided Windows 7. And then again, it could be neither HP nor Dell. Latest news is that not only is Jobs relaunching a ‘better’ version of the iPhone (a smaller iPad perhaps?), but even Nokia, Microsoft, Sony and Google are coming in the tablet PC market. jayant mundra
