HP: Number One Plus

Eric Cador, HP’s European head:

In the PC world, with fewer ways of differentiating HP’s products from our competitors, we became number one; in the tablet world we’re going to become better than number one. We call it number one plus.

Better than number one?

The strategy by which you become the largest supplier of PCs today is simple: build everything from the cheapest to the most expensive and serve every market. You don’t need differentiation, you need size.

At the end of the day shipment market share counts for very little. Profits do.

Number One Plus? CrunchGear reader haromaster:

It will be better than no. 1, it will be Zero

Without a shipping product the TouchPad is currently at zero.
