Wondering about the future of HP’s current iPAQ lineup of Windows Mobile handsets in light of the upcoming launch of Windows Phone 7? In an interview with CNBC, HP’s Executive Vice President Todd Bradley confirmed that the hardware giant will not be producing a Windows Phone 7 or an Android handset. As expected, HP will focus entirely on webOS for its smartphones and use its engineering, manufacturing, and distribution power to lift the struggling mobile OS. Bradley also confirmed that HP is still building the once dead, now resurrected Windows-7 tablet in a move that will presumably smooth over any feathers that were ruffled by HP’s decision not to support Windows Phone 7.
