About HP or Hewlett-Packard

The Hewlett-Packard better known as HP, is an American company of the largest companies of information technology in the world, based in Palo Alto, California. Manufactured and marketed hardware and software as well as providing support services related to computer science. The company was founded in 1939 by William Hewlett and David Packard, and was engaged in the manufacture of electronic measuring instruments and laboratory.


 On October 6, 2014, Hewlett-Packard announced its split into two firms would be listed separately on the stock market, bringing its business computers and printers operate independent of its equipment and services unit corporative. On November it became effective its division into two companies: HP Inc., dedicated to printers and personal computers, Hewlett Packard and Enterprise dedicated servers, storage and networking equipment, software and services for third parties. In the separation process it plans to lay off 5000 employees of the firm.



How HP begin…

Bill Hewlett and David Packard were two companions at Stanford University. In the garage of his casa they built an audio oscillator, electronic test instrument used by sound engineers.

He began a career in electronic test equipment and testing laboratory. Later, in 1968 they entered the business of electronic calculators with great success: HP 9100A (1968), the first calculator manufactured by HP. HP-35 (1972), the first scientific hand calculator. HP-65 (1975), the first programmable calculator hand. HP-41C (1979), the first and expandable alphanumeric calculator hand. HP-28C (1987), the first calculator capable of solving equations symbolically.


A chronology of the development of HP:

Most HP calculators use the reverse polish notation, in English, or RPN Reverse Polish Notation. HP entered the computer field in 1966 with the 2116A, the first of the HP 1000 series designed to collect and analyze the data produced by HP instruments.

The HP 1000 computers are used for CIM applications, such as monitoring and process control, alarm management and supervision of machines.

In 1972, HP branched out, entering the business computing with the 3000 series, a multiuser system that became well known for its extremely high reliability, especially for that time. The 3000 series of great success, has continued to be the main series of HP computers and has evolved into a whole family of computers from micro to mainframe.

Also, in 1972, he presented the first scientific hand calculator, the HP-35, replacing the slide rule and initiating a new era of pocket calculators.

In 1982, he was presented the first HP 9000 work station. The first personal computer was the Touchscreen HP 150, a personal computer with MS-DOS obtained only a modest acceptance. In 1985, he presented the VECTRA, one based on the 286 machine was the first of a complete line of IBM-compatible PC.

HP growth well…

In 1989, HP acquired Apollo Computer, which combined with its own line of HP was the market leader in workstations. Hewlett-Packard sells over 10,000 different products in the field of electronics and computing and has earned a reputation worldwide for its robust and reliable engineering.

 In 2002, Hewlett-Packard acquired Compaq Computer Corp. for $ 20 000 million. Numerous large HP shareholders, including Walter Hewlett, publicly opposed the deal. Michael Capellas, then CEO of Compaq, left the company after a brief stint as president of HP. Carly Fiorina became the new CEO of HP and responsibles for the merged company.

Also, Fiorina directed Compaq for nearly three years after Capellas left. During that time, HP laid off thousands of former employees of Compaq, its stock price generally declined, profits did not rise, and continued to lose market share to Dell. Facing dismissal from a hostile board. Fiorina opted to leave in February 2005 before the board could fire her.

Moreover, On December 16, 2011, HP said it would release webOS full code. Passing this to be OpenSource In late July 2013, HP launched its first tablet with Android operating system, the HP Slate7.

Let’s go Tablet

This tablet runs Android 4.1.1, HP ePrint, WiFi, Micro SD expandable up to 32 GB, ARM A9 Dual Core 1.6GHz processor, which is suitable for 3D, lithium-ion games of a cell of 13, 4 WH 2 Ah. That is equivalent to 5 hours of video playback and accelerometer. Further, it is necessary to tilt and move to enable practical applications and games.

In addition,  weight of 370 g and the highlight are that it has Beats Audio (Beats by dre). It gives a greater sound experience and speed. The disadvantages is the screen is “not available“ in HD. But, it has optimal resolutions, VGA type front camera and rear 3-megapixel camera. On November 1, 2015 became effective separation into two companies: Hewlett Packard HP Inc.
