Brave or what? An HP executive has revealed that the company has a smartphone under development.

After just 12 months at the helm of the world's largest computer company Hewlett-Packard, CEO Leo Apotheker has been axed and replaced with former eBay boss Meg Whitman.

HP today announced that it would produce a last batch of its webOS-based TouchPads to satisfy purchase requests received after having announced the tablet's withdrawal from sales: a move that resulted in a mad scamble for discounted TouchPads.

With 94% or almost 635m new PCs shipped by the end of 2011 to come with Windows 7, and on 42% of all PCs in total, Microsoft's Vista replacement is slowly but surely making its way up the charts, as Apple posts small gains and Linux based operating systems remain 'niche'.
