HP get back into the mobile space with their recently released HP Slate 7. Before that was their failed tablet running WebOS, and along with it were rumors of a smartphone.

Specifically, this system will be running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, though we suspect the size of the device may be more important here.
